159 The Italian alternative
     The Alfa 159 marks a turning-point in the design of
     Alfa Romeo cars. A model that symbolises the very
     essence of the Italian car: a symbiosis of style,
     sporting spirit and technology. Guigiaro has penned
     an unmistakably original styling statement while
     state-of-the-art technology under the bodywork has
     given birth to a car characterised by class-beating
     performance and comfort. Built around the pulsating
     heart of all Alfa cars is a powerful, responsive
     engine aligned with the great tradition of the Brand.
     A suite of unique elements able to meet the
     requirements of the most demanding, sophisticated
     motorist. The Alfa 159 interprets these elements
     in a superior-class vehicle that delivers performance
     and dynamic behaviour worthy of a great sports car
     combined with comfort and five-star safety.
     In a nutshell, the temperament of a thoroughbred
     combined with the comfort of an executive sedan.
     Alfa 159 represents the strength and personality
     of a new generation of Alfa Romeo cars.
     The Italian alternative.
                                   159 Character
                                       Alfa 159 is the ultimate expression of the safety
                                       and strength of Alfa Romeo, a name that for many
                                       years has been synonymous with the outstanding
                                       performance and styling in the world of sporting
                                       sedans. Designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro, in
                                       collaboration with the Alfa Romeo Style Centre,
                                       the Alfa 159 has attractive, aggressive and sporty
                                       styling. The front features the classic vertical
                                       “shield”, which seems to be the starting point for
                                       the entire car, with all-new circular lights. The rear,
                                       tough and solid, has large pillars around the rear
                                       window, a twin exhaust pipe, and a small spoiler
                                       that gives the car a sense of style and practicality.

                                       The overall impression is one of elegance, power,
                                       sturdiness and dynamism, an impression enhanced
                                       by the use of 16”, 17” or 18” alloy wheels. The
                                       sloping front pillar gives the car a sleek look,
                                       emphasising the presence of the powerful engine
                                       under the bonnet. The elongated rear lights are
                                       split at the opening for the luggage compartment,
                                       and echo the front lights. The exterior dimensions:
                                       4660mm long; 1828mm wide; 1417mm high,
                                       with a wheelbase of 2700mm are class leading
                                       and provide loads of interior space.
                                       Solidity and class, then, are the qualities that
                                       strike you at first glance of the Alfa 159.

159 Style
    Alfa 159 is characterised by sleek, uncluttered
    lines from the front lighting clusters to the tailgate.
    A pencil-thin crease running along the side of the
    vehicle exalts its dimensions and emphasises its
    sleek shape. No add-ons, just top-class design.

                             159 Technology
                                 The Alfa 159 passed extremely stringent performance
                                 tests, checks and inspections before flaunting the
                                 Alfa badge. In-depth studies were carried out to endow
                                 the vehicle with the performance and handling of a
                                 sports car while preserving the characteristic of a
                                 sporty sedan. Ride comfort and dynamic behaviour
                                 became the two top priorities of the project. The body,
                                 the use of high-strength steel and refined suspensions
                                 absorb any irregularities in the road to guarantee
                                 extremely precise steering (the most direct in it’s
                                 category with a very reduced steering diameter)
                                 - are all offshoots of highly evolved design. Without
                                 forgetting that Alfa 159 in the 3.2 V6 version also
                                 offers the evolution of 4x4 permanent drive.
                                 The ‘Alfa Romeo Q4 4WD’ system guarantees
                                 permanent, dynamic distribution of traction on all
                                 four wheels, allowing the Alfa 159 to achieve
                                 maximum levels of safety and sporty handling.
                                 With Alfa 159 Q4, Alfa Romeo has penned another
                 Evolved         page in the history of great automotive technology.

          159 Sturdiness
                   The torsional stiffness of the Alfa 159 is best-in-
                   class: a crucial element for outstanding sturdiness
                   and excellent road-holding, as well as total safety.
                   The bodyshell uses both high-strength, dual-phase
                   steels and multi-thickness metals welded in part
                   using laser technology. The high level of
                   chassis stiffness means that the steering and
                   suspension always perform well even under the
                   worst possible road conditions. The “premium”
                   floorplan combines with the bodyshell to form a
                   high-strength, compact structure. The Alfa 159, a
                   tremendous technological achievement that fuses
    Confident      safety, comfort and high performance for unrivalled
                   driving pleasure.

                  159 Confidence
                      When designing the Alfa 159, active and passive
                      safety systems were right at the top of the list of
                      priorities and have earned the Alfa 159 five
                      EuroNCAP safety rating stars. Use of high-strength
                      and dual-phase steel for the bodywork, the
                      non-deformable floor plan and a rugged engine
                      supporting structure guarantee maximum protection
                      for passengers, in the case of impact at high speed.
                      In addition to front, side and window air-bags, the car
                      is also equipped with innovative knee bags.
                      Isofix attachments are also available for child seats.
