Before its highly-anticipated unveiling at the Geneva show in March, Alfa Romeo has been leaking mere glimpses at its upcoming entry-level hatchback. Tentatively known as the "Junior" after Alfa scrapped its own online naming contest, the hatchback is based on sister company Fiat's Grande Punto platform, but with even more sumptuous Italian styling and a range of engines.

These latest images appear to have been prepared for its brochure, but have somehow found their way out of the factory and into cyber-space. None of the images, which can be seen after the jump, reveal anything more than some close-up details, but the when Alfa takes the wraps off its latest, it should give the Mini a run for its money.

      The pieces don't really stir the imagination. Come on Alfa show us a car not door handles.

      If this is anywhere near as sexy as some of their latest work and comes to the US at a Mini like price I will be the first to order one.

      Yes it would be competing with the Mini. It is in that 'trendy small hatchback' segment with Volvo C30, Audi A3, Mini and soon to be Saab 9-1 and audi A1.

      The Fiat 500 competes with the Mini, and the Grande Punto is bigger than a 500, so would the Alfa Junior really be competing with the Mini?
