Equipment

2.5 out of 5 2.5

You're paying for the performance and that Italian pedigree chassis, so don't expect too much extra kit in the base model. Most used cars have all the options you want, though.

Safety

3 out of 5 3.0

The Alfa was only awarded three stars in Euro NCAP crash tests, but you do get ABS, traction control and six airbags as standard across the range. An alarm/immobiliser and remote central locking are standard on all cars.

Interior & boot space

2.5 out of 5 2.5

Despite being attractive, the interior feels a little claustrophobic in the rear of the three-door model, especially when fully loaded. The seats split and fold, but luggage space lags behind rivals such as Ford Focus and a narrow tailgate and high sill make it tricky to access. The boot only opens via a button on the key or on the dash which can be awkward.

How does the boot space compare?

Check the table below to see how the Alfa Romeo 147 (01-09) compares to other similar cars in terms of available boot space.

Model Boot space
Ford Focus Hatchback (05-11) 385 litres
SEAT Leon Hatchback (05-12) 341 litres
Alfa Romeo 147 (01-09) 280 litres
Volkswagen Golf Hatchback (04-08) 275 litres
