Looking for a vehicle with gorgeous Italian styling, sporty features, and fantastic pricing? Look no further than the family-friendly 2011 Alfa Romeo 159 Sedan. One of the newest models in the Alfa Romeo lineup, the 159 Sedan was first introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in production form in 2005. It was produced between 2005 and 2011 to replace the aging Alfa Romeo 156. The 159 uses the GM/Fiat Premium platform, which is also shared with Alfa Romeo's Spider and Brera vehicles. As far as concept cars, it's similar to the company's Kamal and Visconti models. Like most Alfa Romeo models, it's award winning. The 159 Sedan won third place in the European Car of the Year awards in 2006, and its updated 2011 model is just as impressive- with added bonus features. The 2011 version of the 159 was the last year of the vehicle's production, as it was replaced by the Alfa Romeo Giulia. It is still available for purchase, however, as a new vehicle.
One of the best attributes of the Alfa Romeo 159 is its distinct Italian beauty-its most overwhelming feature. Let's face it; the car looks great from every angle- especially compared to its \"cookie-cutter\" rivals. Drivers who choose Alfa Romeos are conscious of this fact, but this isn't the only reason they choose the Italian automaker. The high-quality interiors of Alfa Romeos- made of luxurious materials- are another reason drivers choose the brand, as are the fantastic power and technology features inside these vehicles. The 159 embodies all that is Alfa Romeo- and more. Although you might not find as much power on the Alfa Romeo 159 as you do on other Alfa Romeo models (Think: the Giulietta), it has been known to win a few races in its day, including first place in the unique fuel category for several years running at the 12 Hour Challenge tour car racing events in Bathurst. The Alfa Romeo 159 has also participated as a safety car in various racing endeavors. Alfa Romeo used the 2.4 Liter JTDm engine in the 159 for these races. You may have also seen Alfa Romeo define sleekness in the 2008 James Bond Movie Quantum of Solace when it joined Bond's famous Aston Martin vehicle in a car chase. It can also be seen in several other films- proof of its stylish appearance and universal appeal.
