Alfa Romeo 159
In 2005, at the time when the 156-model of Italian brand Alfa Romeo won many awards and appreciation of customers, the managers of the company decided to upgrade it and named Alfa Romeo 159, which has kept many features of its family members. A year later a new model won third place in the "European Car of the Year." Design Center of Alfa Romeo and personally Giorgetto Giugiaro worked hard on the exterior Alfa Romeo 159. It was a real Italian sports car.
Full-face aggressive, with a traditional chrome shield panel and the structure of prey headlamps, hidden under the hood of frowning and dynamic profile. Only not too expressive feed and small 16-inch wheels spoil the overall impression.
However, the second drawback is solved by a factory tuning package «Turismo Internazionale» Alfa Romeo 159 in which the 19-inch alloy wheels have appeared, exposing red calipers Brembo.
The interior of Alfa Romeo 159 is uniquely traced sports entity Cuore Sportive Alfa. Dashboard with center console developed towards the driver. Devices informative and elegant (in the "zero" position arrows look straight down), some of them brought to the center console (three wells with the Italian designations Olio, Benzina and Aqua). Adjustments to the steering wheel and the seat is enough for the driver almost any complexion, although it is worth considering a very well-developed lateral support. The quality of materials and finishes is noticeable even in such trifles as emblems of Alfa Romeo at the backside of the leather seats. The only thing that is still frustrating because this unwillingness of Italian experts to reconcile the beauty and elegance with practicality and ergonomics. To manage the climate control in the Alfa Romeo 159 will have to get used to. Until low-lying glovebox from the driver's seat to reach is absolutely impossible. Trunk release button "escaped" to the ceiling. A trunk of a hatchback, however, as the entire interior, very modest size (total 405 liters), and the loading aperture is narrow, although underfloor spare wheel and has a hatch for the transport of long oversized. In the wagon Alfa Romeo 159 SportWagon situation with a capacity of baggage, of course, is much better - here it comes to the volume of 1235 liters.
The price for Alfa Romeo 159 sedan ranges from $ 33,200 to $ 49,100, which is consistent with the Italian claims to exclusivity. Especially when you consider that in 2012, the next generation of Alfa Romeo's 159th model will be collected on the same platform with the Chrysler 300C, making the car a totally different. Oh, and the cost of the station wagon Alfa Romeo 159 SportWagon starts at $ 34,200 and goes up to $ 50,100 for the complete set of "High" with the engine 3.2 and "automatic".
