Sporty at heart, compact in size and Italian style at first sight. The wait is over. Alfa Romeo presents the new ALFA ROMEO JUNIOR to the international press in Milan, at the historic headquarters of the Automobile Club Milano, with a dual purpose: on the one hand, to demonstrate Alfa Romeo’s new language; on the other, to confirm that visceral and proud partnership with the city where Alfa Romeo was founded in 1910 as an emblem of the perfect balance between innovation and tradition, founding characteristics that bind the brand to its hometown.

Orders are now open for ALFA ROMEO JUNIOR in the “SPECIALE” launch version, the new gateway to the Alfa Romeo world for everyone, Alfisti fans and beyond, who has been awaiting the brand's return to the segment. To play a leading role, Alfa Romeo offers the sportiest and most exciting compact car to drive in the entire class, being just over 4 metres long.

In a segment populated by sporty versions derived from generalist models, ALFA ROMEO JUNIOR is proposed as cool and unique, combining a captivating style with the most advanced technology in terms of connectivity, driving dynamics and uncompromising comfort, as evidenced by the largest trunk among premium competitors (400 L).

ALFA ROMEO JUNIOR is available in “IBRIDA” configuration, the first in the segment to also offer the Q4 all-wheel drive variant with automated rear-wheel drive axle management, and as “ELETTRICA,” in two power variants with 156 hp and a range of up to 410 km, as well as the sportier 240-hp VELOCE, the epitome of Alfa Romeo's sporting DNA.
