 Pros A variety of engines are available on the 159 SW, including the new 6 speed automatic with tiptronic style manual control options, for the ultimate in personalized driving performance.

 Pros This 159 is infused with impressive safety features, like the Seven standard airbags. There are two in the front, two on the side, two in the window, and one specifically designed to protect the driver's knees.

 Cons The 2011 Alfa Romeo 159 SW Wagon's has been known to have some issues. This problem is further complicated by the fact that the problem does not occur frequently enough to warrant bringing it in for repairs, but it can still have a negative effect on the driving experience.

 Cons There are no cup holders in the SW Wagon, leaving the driver with a lap full of coffee or soda.

 Cons Some of the on-board technology feels a little dated. We wish that the vehicle included more standard technology features due to its high price point.

 Cons The so-called ergonomic design of the driver's side is actually a bit chaotic, specifically the low-level location of the RadioNAV which is almost at the driver's knee.

 Cons Not an "everyman" kind of car, more for people who really like to drive and push their vehicles to their maximum performance levels (this may be considered a pro if you are the second kind of person).
