If this crossover looks a little familiar, your eyes are not playing tricks on you. Alfa Romeo unveiled this concept vehicle at the 2003 Geneva Motor Show. It was called the Kamal, and it was supposed to have gone into production by now. But things have been a little crazy over at the Fiat group. Mergers and acquisitions have collapsed and others have gone through, forcing the Italian automaker to change its product strategy at every turn.
What has us asking questions all over again is this batch of spy shots reportedly leaked by an employee at Fiat's Elasis research and development facility in Pomigliano, Italy. Of course, it's entirely possible the original concept was being moved from one storage facility to another, but then they could be bringing it out again for another reason. One way or another, we should find out soon as Fiat/Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne prepares to decide on Alfa's fate in due course.

      They're jumping on the SUV bandwagon that left the station for Korea years ago.

      But it's not the original concept or even close to it... The biggest difference being the tail lights (the concepts were completely within the tailgate, similar to Audi SUVs).

      I'll stick with my assuming this is a near production model, regardless of whether it was canned or not.

      I think those are the old original photos from a couple years ago -

      that isn't the original concept
      the front grille, headlights and rear lamp/screen shapes, the window line and door handles are all different (if you take the link to its original site)
      im intrigued to know if this will ever appear...

      Alfa makes this looking to the US market, it will be a good entry model to this market so it is possible that some alfa models will be on sale in America

      God no...Alfa does not need this to further dilute its brand image.

      Don't we already have this on our roads? Oh yeah, the 2006 Subaru Tribeca B9 called and wants its design back. Weird looking SUV and a total sales flop but I am more than sure if it had an Alfa Romeo badge in front of it, there would be a lot of supports that would swear how stylish/sophisticated it looks. The current bubbly design language of Alfa is not doing anything to me :S

      the headlights are from the Grande Punto, the rear lights are from the old 147 and aren't even LED, the rims are ridiculously small and the front grille is from the 159.
      this is about as much of a finished product as Windows 8.

      bear in mind, before we could get even the slightest glimpse of the definitive new Giulietta, we had test mule shots showing up on the blogs about three years before that...
