This car just Works! The Looks of the front headlamps staring straight at you, the sound of the exhaust is just an extreme experience. I had a chance to test drive the new Alfa Romeo 159, in the beggining i didn’t think it was going to be anything new and would be like all the other 4 door saloons of its size. The only word that could describe this car after the test drive was “Different”!
Everything about this car, the looks, the acceleration, the speed, the handling, just makes the driving experience surreal! I Enjoyed driving it, the acceleration and the sound of the exhaust is just breathtaking, I had the stereo off the whole time just to listen to the engine noise and the sound that was coming out of the exahust. If only the weather was better you woudl’ve found my head hanging out the window just listening to the sound it made! End of story its a great car, and will make an excellent daily driver.
The interior seats are very comfortable and hold you in place, even when your cornering at higher speeds, the grip of the car to ground is just amazing, you can bypass traffic as if your in a sports car, the acceleration was so good and with the traction you got from the all wheel drive it made you feel invinsible, especially on those roads where the guy in fornt of you is either on the phone or chasing another car. The gear ratios are different, the car tends to rev higher than other cars i’ve driven and stays on the gear longer, that might be a make or break point for some people but for me it made me feel i’m really driving, and on the edge.
One thing I really would’ve liked is a sleeker rear exterior, the front is amazing, the back in my perspective needs an upgrade. The only other thing that might be extra features such as and iPod kit and maybe a screen. But then the simplicity of this car is one of the major factors you’d love!
Who would drive this car ? I would say Its a person who really wants to get the most of life, the person who would smile when he listens to the car starting up and that exhaust sound, the person who wouldn’t settle for an average car of a certain genre.
The 159 was designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro.
