Car reviews - Alfa Romeo - 156 - Twin Spark sedan
Alfa Romeo models
The 1998 European Car of The Year is a class act with loads of emotional pull Refined and well-made, the 156 is eager to be driven, although the big style quotient masks a few practical flaws and a tightish cabin. The true believers will justify these as character. Call it seduction on wheels
The build quality is more than acceptable, but the interior fit and finish and the grade of the materials can't match the BMW. However, the Alfa shines in other ways. Its engine and handling prowess ensures this sedan should be on every prestige buyer's shopping list
Did you know?The Australian Alfa 156 sedan range consists of two versions: the 2.0 litre 114 kW Twin Spark and the 2.5 V6 24V with a 140 kW engine with a choice of five speed manual and five speed automatic with the two litre unit and a four speed automatic with the V6.
