Mito: The Punto-based Supermini with a shield for the grill was clean, but not enough.
Julia Quadriforogio: It’s too late to save Alpha, but it’s magnificent. Lesser Julius is also great.
Renegade: This charismatic compact SUV is jeep-ish, but has a guilty secret charm.
Wrangler: True to its rugged legacy of flat panels. Not brilliant, but honest and attractive.
Fulveitta Concept: This 2003 coupe still looks good, a very desirable hint of what might have happened. Because it was ignored.
Epsilon: The last Lancia, a city hatchback 10 years ago, had a strong 2020 in Italy, where it is still the only place for sale.
Memories of FCA
Fiat: Drive 500 out of Turin’s soccer stadium at launch. Very clean and surprisingly well made. But to drive … ok.
Lancia: Disappointment that Fiat’s marketing boss Olivier Le Francois at the time said, despite much research, it was impossible to make Lancia profitable. Maybe it has changed now.
Alfa Romeo: Read FCA’s amazing 2014 indictment on Alfa Romeo’s management announced at the Investors Conference. The corrective goal has only been partially achieved.
