Alfa Romeo’s first ever SUV in history has been digitally rendered ahead of expected debut sometime next year.

Seen here are unofficial images depicting the upcoming crossover model of Alfa Romeo, the work of automotive designer Alessandro Masera from Italy. It’s easy to notice that the machine is inspired by the Giulia sedan but comes with sleeker body lines and what appears to be a shorter wheelbase.

The Italian manufacturer is yet to confirm the shape of its first SUV but we already know it will hit the assembly line in Q1-Q2 2016 with global debut rumored to take place during the Geneva Motor Show in March.

Both rear- and all-wheel drive versions are planned with a range of four-cylinder turbo petrol and diesel engines. A 6-cylinder variant could also be in the cards, but nothing has been confirmed yet.
