Alfa Romeo 159
The Alfa 159, a prestigious sports saloon which heralds a new generation of cars from Alfa! It combines entertaining driving, outstanding performance and distinctive contemporary styling.
The car’s elegance is based on harmonious relationships, the long bonnet and compact passenger cabin gives the car prestige, the ratio between the windows and sides gives it a sporty personality, while the strong shoulder along the side emphasises the car’s sleekness. Inside the “cockpit” the supportive, sporty front and rear seats in soft leather wrap around you and balance elegantly with the hard and cold aluminium.
Designed to ensure that the wheels always stay in contact with the road, should the car swerve or start to take a bend too fast, VDC (Vehicle Dynamic Control) stability control cuts in automatically to reduce the power from the engine or apply the appropriate brakes to prevent understeer/oversteer. You can also be confident in the stopping ability with the sophisticated braking system. Designers have made the cabin a “survival cell”, and with seven airbags as standard, and three Isofix mountings for a child seat- safety has been made a priority in the Alfa 159!
Standard features like cruise control, automatic climate system with dual-zone temperature control ensure that the only hot heads are those that watch you just drive on by. The Lusso version also adds extra delights with sensors for rain, dusk and reverse parking and at circa 47 miles to the gallon- it’s a car to get passionate about!
