Alfa Romeo 156
Alfa Romeo 156 - is clear evidence of a new era of traditions of sports sedan and wagon, but in a modern interpretation of the Italian masters, thanks to whom the habitual concept of comfortableness and elegance is ideally combined with good controllability and tremendous dynamics. The quality of these cars, unlike his predecessors, has improved significantly, thus the corrosion problem forever remained in the past. In the previous model, Alfa Romeo 155, had another weak spot - electronics that Italian producers safely replaced by a new sound. In short, the Alfa Romeo 156 - a sports, individual and elegant car, as indicated by his energetic and streamlined shape.
The rear view is even more extravagant. Back headlights remind "the blinked eyes", and while thin crevices of stoplights is top of estheticism. Keyhole is hidden under the emblem of «Alfa Romeo». The wedge-shaped silhouette of the body and the line of a glazing in itself which the sedan as it rises to the rear, reminds a coupe. The lack of rear door handles intensifies this feeling. They are located at the base of the rear pillars. And, despite all extravagance of this car, the European critics appreciated Alfa Romeo 156 style.
Alfa Romeo 156 is just as elegant and luxurious inside as its outside. Driving is very comfortable, so traveling long distances will not cause wicking leg muscles. However, it seems that the manufacturer focused on "non-standard" drivers with long arms and short legs. However, this type of deficiency can be easily eliminated by adjusting the mode of driver's seat and carrying out of a wheel. The lack of space there is no reason to complain about anything neither at the forward passenger, nor at the driver. There are special space for the elbows, shoulders and legs. But Alfa Romeo 156 passengers in the back seat were not so lucky: very limited legroom, and sitting is designed only for two passengers. In addition, the cargo space of a sedan is not distinguished by its superior storage capacity.
If we talk about the technical characteristics - Alfa Romeo 156 is represented by four petrol engines belonging to the genus Twin Spark (per cylinder - two candles). All of them are equipped with mechanical five-speed gearbox. And that's not all. For fans to disperse the car up to a hundred in 7.5 seconds represented V-twin petrol motor, extending the flagship program of motorization capacity of 190 hp. The 2.4 and 1.9 liters diesels aren't less attractive. They are equipped with system of direct injection of Common Rail and turbocharged. The system of front suspension includes shock absorbers and transverse stability of helical springs, as well as transverse triangular twin levers.
A distinctive feature of Alfa Romeo 156 - is his favorable and dynamic behavior on the route. It's like a car specially designed for all the lovers of fast and active drive that deservedly will appreciate its excellent technical and aesthetic characteristics in combination with acceptable price.
