Alfa Romeo really came of age with the 156. Prior to this model, buying an Alfa middleweight had always been a gamble that could backfire spectacularly. The Giulietta, the 155 and the 75 could all be great fun on their day but never really had the talents to form a cohesive whole. The 156, initially introduced in 1998, changed all that. The car we look at here is the post facelift version of the 156, identified by its more angular front end and it's this model that probably makes one of the smartest used Alfa purchases.
The Alfa Romeo 156 offers a refreshing alternative for the BMW fan that's wavering. It's a car that needs no excuses. The build quality is decent, the range of engines is impressive and the styling is sharper than anything in the class to emerge from Germany. It seems a long time since the 156 won the European Car of The Year award back in 1998. The facelifted cars only served to remind us how little needed changing.
