According to report, one of the reasons why the Alfa Romeo Giulia Wagon has been cancelled is because the automaker needs to focus on the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, which will be the first ever SUV for the automaker. It was mentioned that the automaker is looking to boost its sales and apparently, adding more station wagon into the lineup is not the best course of action to do it.
