Alfa Romeo Debuts 2011MY 159 Sedan and Sportwagon

If the Fiat Group remains committed to its 2010-2014 product plan, then the successor to today's Alfa Romeo 159, the new Giulia, will make its appearance on both sides of the Atlantic in 2012. Until then, Alfa will keep tweaking the current 159 with incremental improvements to sustain sales in Europe.

Following the recent introduction of the new 200HP 1.75-liter turbocharged petrol and 170HP 2.0-liter JTDM diesel into the range, Alfa Romeo has now announced the release of a 2011MY 159 that will be marketed in most European countries beginning from next month.

For the new model year, the 159 saloon and Sportwagon models benefit from some subtle updates that include new upholstery and trim options, and the introduction of four new equipment packages similar to those offered on the Giulietta and MiTo hatchbacks - Comfort Pack, Sport Pack, Comfort Plus Pack and TI Plus Pack.
