Pros & cons


Stunning looks, wonderful interior styling, decent luggage space, lovely V6 engine


Not quite as good to drive as it looks, cramped rear seats, boot awkward to access

The Brera was never meant to be a road going car – it actually started life as an ItalDesign concept car based around a Maserati in 2003, however, Alfa submitted to demand and went ahead with a production version. Developed alongside the 159 the Brera shares exterior and interior styling cues, as well as engines and gearboxes. It’s more of a grand tourer than an outright sports car but is still enjoyable to drive and is available with two petrol engines plus a refined diesel.

A sportier Brera S was introduced in 2008 and this limited edition model comes with tuned suspension, a lower ride height and larger alloy wheels making it more focused on demanding roads. In 2010 Alfa Romeo introduced the 200bhp 1750TBi engine on the good-looking Brera range.
