Although Car magazine says the coming Alfa Romeo Milano (nee 147) is "quite different from the Mito mini," their rendering of the car makes it look an awful lot like a Mito with two more doors. Not that there's anything wrong with that, since it just means more of a good thing. Compared to its 147 predecessor, it will be longer and lower, although still relatively Golf-sized.
The Milano comes on the C-Evo architecture that will also be applied to the new Giulia (nee 159) and Fiat's other medium range cars – like the next Chrysler Sebring. The versatile building block will offer various lengths and widths in FWD and 4-wheel-drive versions, and propulsion will be courtesy of MultiAir engines. Unveiling of the 5-door hatchback is expected at either Frankfurt later this year, or Geneva in 2010.

      I was living in Italy when the 147 was introduced, and I REALLY wanted one. Alas, my company did the dotcom bust thing instead of dotcom boom (we were late to that fantasy IPO party) and I didn't end up with a 147 to replace the aging but decent Fiat Tipo I bought on the cheap.

      If this rendering is very close to the final product, I'd rather have the current generation car.

      Are you sure that isn't the Mercury Milano or the Nissan Milano? Maybe the Alfa Murano?

      Huh? "The Milano comes on the C-Evo architecture that will also be applied to the new Giulia (next 159) and Fiat's other medium range cars – like the next Chrysler Sebring". What about the 200C?

      This is like naming the old Ford Probe as a "Mustang." The original Milano was an awesome V-6, RWD, Transaxled beast. The Guilia was a great, classic RWD sedan with a better Cd than the coupes. Don't revive names if they aren't going to be spiritual successors, and FWD cars are not.

      I want a GTA one... badly. The only thing that would make it better is RWD... Sadly it looks like the 1-series 5 door which we will never get is the only choice.
