The Auto Trader expert verdict:
The Alfa Romeo 159 saloon occupies the ground between mainstream family cars like the Ford Mondeo and premium saloons like the BMW 3 Series. It's very stylish, comfy and well-equipped.
Reasons to buy:
- Makes a strong style statement
- Fun to drive
- Comfortable and spacious
At a glance:
If you want to stand out from the masses in the BMW 3 Series and Audi A4 crowd, but fancy something classier than a Ford Mondeo or Vauxhall Vectra, this is a great way to do it. In the past the choice would have meant a compromise, mainly in the areas of reliability and comfort, but not any more.
Expert rating: 3/5
