    "Likely to be badged Dodge Hornet, this new car clearly draws heavily from the European-market Alfa Romeo Giulietta. For the first time ever, we can see that its front fascia uses the crosshair design that is part of Dodge’s brand DNA. So far, the only model we’ve seen fully uncovered is the Hornet sedan, but a five-door with proportions almost identical to the Giulietta is also expected.

    Chrysler has been notoriously quiet about development of its new compact car, which will replace the Dodge Caliber. But we anticipate both 1.4-liter and 1.8-liter four-cylinders to provide motivation to the front wheels through manual and dual-clutch automatic transmissions. The 168-horsepower 1.4-liter unit will power most Hornets, while the 232-horsepower 1.8-liter, badged as a 1.75-liter on the Alfa Romeo as an homage to the brand’s legendary 1750 twin-cams, will likely be used in an SRT4 variant. Like the car’s platform and much of its styling, the powertrains have been sourced from Fiat and its Alfa Romeo division."
