Alfa Romeo's future product strategy includes the introduction of the Stelvio SUV, but it seems that the Italians are also working on a compact, too, which could wear the Kamal moniker. The name has been thrown into the mix by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) about a month ago and it was just discovered by Autoblog on the United States Patent and Trademark Office registry. Linking it to Alfa Romeo is a small CUV concept introduced by the automaker back in 2003, and if the latest info is correct, then expect the new vehicle to be underpinned by a scaled-down Stelvio platform. Alfa's first SUV will ride on the same architecture as the recently launched Giulia and use the same turbocharged four-cylinder and V6 diesel and petrol engines.Despite the Alfa Romeo Stelvio being officially announced by the FCA's CEO, Sergio Marchionne, in February, there is no trademark for the "Stelvio" name in the United States Patent and Trademark Office's database. Not that we know of, anyway...PHOTO GALLERY
