Re: Alfa 159 sportWagon

I've tried this new 159 Sportwagon arround Monaco and Nice, it's awesome, for the design, and for the handling, excellent, with a confort correct, on the little roads on the little hills. The diesel engines are excellent, as all the Jtd of the Fiat Group, I tried the Jtd 120 (just in power, but sufficiant to move the car) and the 150, a good compromise with the expensive 200hp.
In gas, I tried the 2.2 jts 185hp, I was a little bit delude, the previous Twin Spark were really better. For the V6, I don't know, I didn't try it on the 159, but I heard that it's less good than the V6 Alfa. These new GM gas engines are not the best at all for this new Alfa, but the Italian make will maybe decide to change that in the future as the accord with GM is finished.

Some pics I've taken with my phone (sorry for the quality !) to illustrate :
