  • Economy

    Value

    4 out of 5 4.0

    A lot of performance and luxury for your money.

    Costs

    4 out of 5 4.0

    Cheap to buy, reasonably economical for a 3 litre car - 30 mpg possible.

  • On the road

    Driving

    5 out of 5 5.0

    A luxury four-door saloon that drives like a hot hatch!

    Performance

    5 out of 5 5.0

    Stunning acceleration, more speed than you can use, good brakes, handles like a Golf Mk 1 GTi.

  • Living with it

    Reliability

    1 out of 5 1.0

    Appalling! A brilliant car spoiled by stupid design faults (oil pressure operated timing belt tensioner that leaks oil on the belt for instance) and typically poor Alfa build quality and quality control.

  • Security and Service

    Security

    1 out of 5 1.0

    Mine unlocks itself regularly despite (or possibly because of) the attentions of an Alfa dealer - thanks St Leonards Motors…

    Service

    1 out of 5 1.0

    Alfa (Fiat to be realistic) don"t want to know about problems. Getting the RIGHT parts from a dealer is nearly impossible.
