Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 21 - 30 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Depreciation is pretty horrendous, and the V6 in particular is thirsty and not cheap to insure. It's really only a car to buy if you're a performance fan or love Alfa's - not if you have one eye on running costs. The 2.0-litre is cheaper to own, but lacks the kudos and pace of the V6.

The GTV is a polluting model and with an average of 245g/km CO2 across the line-up, its emissions are high for a sports coupe. It's worth noting that the line-up does not feature any diesel models, which typically produce less carbon dioxide than petrol engines with similar power outputs. The range is thirsty too, averaging just 28mpg.

Alfa's have a reputation in this department and it's not a good one, however plenty of people enjoy troublefree motoring. The main problems tend to be niggles more than major faults, with electric glitches common. It's a mechanically sound car but you can minimise the risk by ensuring you stick religiously to the servicing and check the oil level.
