2011 Alfa Romeo 159 Upgraded For UK

alfa romeo 159 update 1 at 2011 Alfa Romeo 159 Upgraded For UK

The gorgeous Alfa Romeo 159 has received a new 136 bhp 2.0 JTDM diesel engine and new interior trim and equipment, to continue its career even stronger in the British market.

The new Euro 5 diesel engine offered for the Alfa 159 makes 136 bhp and 350 Nm of torque which is not bad performance-wise. But more importantly it qualifies for the most important diesel power band within segment D with CO2 emissions of 134 g/km for the Saloon – 137 g/km for the Sportwagon. Granted, a diesel engine for such a beautiful car is like a supermodel with beard, but you can’t ignore its advantages in terms of economy, environment and taxation.

As for the new interior upgrades, the revised range features three trim specifications; the entry level Turismo trim is complemented by two further trim levels; one designed for occupant comfort – Lusso, and the other dedicated to a sporty feel – TI. In addition, the Alfa 159 now offers new sports cloth upholstery and a top-quality sports leather in black or natural, as well as a cabin environment which is further enriched with elegant chrome-plated three-layer treatment or brush black aluminium inserts on the dashboard, on the mouldings and on the central console.

The Lusso version features leather upholstery, visibility pack, sports dials with white illumination, darkened interior headlining, black aluminium centre console and steering wheel trim inserts, dark chrome painted dashboard and door trim inserts, rear parking sensors, stainless steel kick plates and 17” Multi-spoke design alloy wheels.

TI versions are distinguished by 19″ TI spoked alloy wheels, side skirts, lowered sports suspension and red painted brake callipers. Inside, the TI environment is recognisable from the wraparound seats trimmed in black Sports leather and Alcantara, sports pedal unit in aluminium and kick plates with the TI logo and sports steering wheel in leather with remote controls, leather gear knob and leather handbrake lever. For an innovative, hi-tech look, new carbon fibre inserts on the central console and steering wheel may be ordered as options.
