    The dimensions suggest a bit bigger car than the Giulietta: Lancia Delta or Alfa Romeo 159.

    Erik, i think you might be mistaken, the giulietta and the bravo have the same dimensions (no more than 10cm in each dimension), the 159 is discontinued and if i am not mistaken is based on a chassis engineered with GM that has already been discontinued.
    the dodge should be based on the giulietta platform, which is modular and as you said it will be bigger than the alfa romeo.
