"A bold sports saloon with a true Italian flavor."
Alfa Romeo's 155 sedan was popular with enthusiasts because of its flawless mix of sport and comfort. So for the next generation car, the 156, Alfa Romeo made sure it gave its core customers what they wanted... and then some. When it was unveiled in 1997, the 156 surprised many with its bold new looks, With a nod to the classic Giulietta and Giulia models, the styling was a fusion of 4-door body and 2-door coupe that took sports-sedan design in a whole new direction.
And the theme continued on the inside. The coordinated black interior incorporated classic styling motifs from yesteryear while still incorporating modern visual cues to excite its passengers. And this feeling transferred to the driving experience.
There were a number of engine choices to be found under the car's hood, from a 1.6-liter inline-4 to a 3.2-liter V6. The most notable of these was arguably the 2.5-liter V6. Although the 187 HP and 163.4 ft-lb of torque were hardly impressive, the engine's main charm was the way it revved. It quickly and melodically hummed its way to redline, exhibiting throttle response akin to a motorcycle engine. It came mated to either 6-speed manual or Alfa's "Q-System" 4-speed automatic.
The 156 passed the baton to its successor model the 159 in 2005, but it still stands as a prime example of classic Italian motoring with a high level of passion and style incorporated into its soul.
