The Alfa Romeo 90 was a mid-size automobile produced by the Italian manufacturer Alfa Romeo between 1984 and 1987.

Designed by Bertone and introduced at the 1984 Turin Motor Show, the 90 was pitched between the Alfa Romeo Alfetta and the Alfa Romeo Alfa 6, both of which were soon discontinued after the 90's launch. The car used the Alfetta chassis (including its rear mounted transaxle) and took its engines from the larger 6. The bodywork was similar to both, albeit modernised. One notable feature of the 90's design was small chin spoiler which extended above a certain speed to aid engine cooling. The 90 was well-equipped, including electric front windows and electrically adjustable seats as standard. The luxurious Gold Cloverleaf (Quadrifglio Oro) model had electric rear windows, a trip computer, power steering, central locking, metallic paint and a digital instrument panel as standard. Five engines were available: 1779cc, 1962cc fuel injection, 1996cc V6, 2492cc V6 fuel injection and 2393cc turbo diesel. The 1962cc injection also incorporated a variable camshaft timing system.

The 90 was revamped in 1986 with many minor changes throughout, the most obvious exterior change being a new grille with smaller horizontal slants.
