Other Alfa Romeo 147 (2001 - 2009) models:

  • Summary

    3 out of 5 3.0

    What does this car say about you?

    Not really relevant, but I would guess it says I like to gamble?

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    They love it, mostly because of the looks.

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    Yes but with a bigger engine, seeing as I'm only getting 30 mpg in the 1.6, may as well get the power to match it.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    Your guess is as good as mine.

  • Driving it

    4 out of 5 4.0

    What's it like to drive?

    Handles quite well, really light steering that gives good road feel. Has traction control just in case, but being a 120 hp 1.6, I don't see the the point.

    What's it like to park?

    Not bad, but I don't find parking difficult. Has a huge turning circle, and the visibility is poor for a hatchback.

  • Living with it

    3 out of 5 3.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Not yet, but it is an alfa....

    What's most practical about your car?

    Probably the cruise control, space inside isn't great, the boot isn't very big either.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    Has all the toys that were available at the time, heated seats, cruise control, half decent computer ect. All of them are more than welcome.
