Parkers overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 3.5

Drivers find no problems with the 156’s comfort – the driving position is fully adjustable, the switchgear is easy to reach and attractively styled, plus there’s generous head and legroom. However, visibility is restricted by awkwardly-styled wing mirrors and chunky rear pillars.

Rear passengers will find that legroom is limited and it’s a squeeze with three in the back, but the seats are well sculpted and are comfortable for long trips.
