Alfa Romeo 159 Saloon (06-11) - rated 4 out of 5

The Alfa Romeo 159 was introduced in 2005 as a replacement for the 156 and was famed for its stylish eye-catching design and characterful interior.

Longer, taller and wider than the model it replaced, as a result interior space was much improved and the 159 was available as either a saloon, or an estate named Sportwagon, the latter offered 460-litres of boot space which, although competitive, wasn’t quite as spacious as most rivals.

An alternative to popular premium models like the BMW 3 Series, Audi A4 and Mercedes-Benz C-Class, the 159 also rivalled more mainstream saloons like the Ford Mondeo and Volkswagen Passat
