Alfa Romeo brings back Milano monicker after more than 30 years.

Alfa Romeo confirms its Milano CUV is in final stages of development, with validation tests currently being conducted at the automaker’s Balocco test track in northern Italy ahead of a planned unveiling for the new model on April 10.

Positioned below the Tonale CUV launched in 2022, the Milano is set to return Alfa Romeo to the B-segment class in global markets for the first time since production of its Mito hatchback was discontinued in 2019.

With a length of around 162.0 ins. (2,311 mm), the Milano shares parent company Stellantis’ E-CMP platform with the Jeep Avenger and Fiat 600e, alongside which it will be produced at a factory in Tychy, Poland.

Together with a mild-hybrid system combining a turbocharged 1.2L gasoline 3-cyl. engine and electric motor developing 99 hp, the Milano also will offer an all-electric drivetrain with a front-mounted electric motor providing 154 hp.

Along with standard front-wheel drive, Alfa Romeo confirms its entry-level CUV will feature an optional all-wheel-drive layout, suggesting it will be the first E-CMP platform-based model to feature an electric motor on the rear axle in an expected Milano line-topping Quadrifoglio performance model.

Both the Avenger and 600e use a front-motor, front-wheel-drive layout in current models.

The adoption of all-wheel drive is to ensure “best-in-class dynamics” with “quick cornering and a high level of grip,” the Italian automaker says.

The Milano name was last used by Alfa Romeo on a North American-market version of the 75 sedan produced between 1985 and 1992.
