“In order to broaden the Alfa Romeo lineup, we launched the Alfa Romeo Giulia last month, with 505 horsepower, setting the fastest lap for a four-door production sedan at Nürburgring," said Bruno Cattori, President and CEO of FCA México. "With more than 40 awards and its iconic Italian style, it has gained the attention of customers around the world, becoming the flagship vehicle for the brand and a reference for the segment.

"Our latest product launches have excited our clients,” Cattori added. “As part of our sales strategy, last month we introduced a new flexible financing program, 'Arma tu Plan,' which simplifies vehicle purchasing with down payment and monthly fees established according to customer needs. This is very important because two-thirds of our sales are carried out through financing.”
