Parece que ningun fabricante se quiere perder el carro de los 4x4, SUV o como los quieran llamar :err: Don't be fooled by the Fiat Palio body: there's an Alfa Romeo under there. The Kamal is going to be Alfa's first SUV, a compact model based on the upcoming 149 underpinnings, and a rival for the Volkswagen Tiguan, Land Rover Freelander or perhaps even BMW X3. The Kamal was first shown in concept form back in 2003 at the Geneva Motor Show and we can expect the production version to follow the lines of the concept, rather than the utilitarian Fiat seen here. Higher-riding than Alfa's Sportwagon four-wheel-drive estates, this SUV will still be road-oriented. Expect a version of the Q4 system, tuned for sporty on-road behaviour, and a cabin designed for comfort rather than utility.
