E' perfida, non vede l'ora di farvi sbagliare e di fare la voce grossa. Se
vi lasciate intimorire o le mancate di rispetto vi ricorderà quanto poco
ci vuole a farsi male dietro un volante. Ne hanno fatte solo 500 quindi
distruggerla non è una buona idea. Presa nella maniera giusta è
intossicante..... E la maniera giusta è: VELOCE.

Con questa prova vogliamo dimostrare a chi non crede che in Italia sappiamo
fare (e facciamo) anche delle belle auto che vale la pena cambiare

AlfaRomeo 156 1.9 M-JET sport distinctive Full Review,Start Up, Engine, and In Depth Tour
The Alfa Romeo 156 is a confusing car. At first glance it looks like a
two-door coupé, yet it's actually a four-door saloon with an interior that
feels Germanic. Fire up one of the diesel versions and it even sounds like
a petrol unit.
Styled by Giorgetto Giugaro, the 156 was launched in the UK in January 1998
and established itself as one of the best looking saloons money could buy.
In an age when most cars merely toe the line, the 156 is a breath of fresh
air. Six years on it remains a handsome car, and with good used examples
available from £3,500 it's a tempting proposition.
The heart of any Alfa Romeo is its engine. Choose the entry-level 1.6, the
range-topping 250bhp V6 3.2, or anything in between, and you will not be
disappointed. All produce a glorious sound, are free-revving and offer a
level of driver involvement rarely found in cars costing this little.
The 156 also has the honour of being the first Alfa in the UK to be powered
by a diesel engine. The largest 2.4 litre five-cylinder diesel sounds gruff
and powerful even when merely ticking over. With 140bhp and 224 lb ft of
pulling power at just 2000rpm, it also performs very well, with 0-62mph
coming up in 9.4sec. Top speed is 127mph.
And the 156 is a car that encourages you to enjoy this performance. The
supremely accurate steering — just 2.2 turns from lock to lock — allows
you to place the car with pinpoint accuracy. Similarly, the suspension,
firm and reassuring at speed, is compliant on motorways and shames even the
BMW 3-series in terms of its blend of control and comfort.
Italian cars have traditionally had a "long arm and short leg" driving
position and this is still slightly noticeable in the 156, although the
adjustable steering column reduces this to a minimum.
But all this exuberance can lead to abuse. Alfas eat their front tyres if
driven hard, and the 156 is particularly prone to front-wheel misalignment,
so check the edges of tyre treads carefully. It's also worth closely
inspecting the car's cabin: while the general quality is high, owners still
report a number of electrical problems — most commonly associated with
the climate control and sound system.
It's difficult to buy a 156 with a bad engine, but the same cannot be said
of the car's gearboxes. Available with three different transmission
systems, the standard manual gearbox (some with six speeds) is normally the
best bet. The clutch is light and the changes are precise, although there
is little space to rest your clutch foot when it's not in use.
The Selespeed clutchless manual gearbox is second best: a button on the
right-hand side of the steering wheel shifts up a gear, while one on the
left changes down, aided by electronics that "blip" the throttle on the
downchange. Least desirable and best avoided is the Q-System four-speed
automatic transmission, which has a manual override shift. It somehow fails
in its attempts to combine the benefits of an auto with the control of a
The 156 can also be bought as an estate, or Sportwagon as Alfa romantically
calls it. Basically, this is all the same good stuff, but with a bigger
boot, so your spaniel can also come out and enjoy the pleasures of an
