 Pros The 2011 Alfa Romeo 159 Sedan comes with excellent safety features, such as: 7 standard air bags, an Electronic Q2 braking system, high torsional rigidity, a high quadrilateral front suspension, a group of Multilink suspensions, a brand-new high-resistance steel body, a rock-solid engine mount structure, and a non-deformable floor bed, and triple Isofix rear attachments assure drivers that they are safe- in day-to-day situations, or in the event of a crash.

 Pros The 159's interior is made of quality, customizable materials. The cabin's fine craftsmanship is apparent by its lustrous looks.

 Pros The family-friendly Alfa Romeo 159 has an extremely pleasant aesthetic appearance. This is evident by its many public appearances in races and films. The ideal Italian styling is attractive to everyone that views the 159.

 Pros The 159 Sedan is very affordable for the features that it offers. MSRPs (not including dealer delivery and government charges) range from as low as $49,990 for the 1750 TBi manual model to $79,990 for the 3.2 V6 AWD Ti model.

 Pros With a 3 year/100,000 KM warranty, drivers can be assured of quality service from the Alfa Romeo brand.

 Cons Alfa Romeos don't always have the best resale value. However, you'll also spend a lot less on the 159 Sedan compared to other luxury models.

 Cons Stability can be a bit rough on roads of lesser quality. The 2011 Alfa Romeo 159 is much steadier on well-constructed highway roads as compared to pothole-filled city streets.

 Cons The 159's storage spaces are plentiful, but aren't very practical- especially the door storage. The backseat is comfortable, but head room is constricted and leg room isn't quite large enough if there's a tall person in the driver's seat. There's a quirky ski hatch behind the center armrest, but the opening is narrow, and boot access is snug.
