The Alfa Romeo 159 Sportwagon

Based on the 159 sedan, the new Sportwagon is a blend of Italian style and performance.

This high class estate measures is 4 660mm long, which is on par with its sedan sibling.

The sleek lines of the long roof give the newcomer a coupé feel, as does the roof spoiler and the edgy aerodynamic styling, while the superbly functional interior offers great load volume.

It offers three new JTS engines with double continuous variable valve timing (the 190 kW 3.2 V6 24v, the 135 kW 2.2 and the 119 kW 1.9) and three turbo-diesel Multijet engines (149 kW 2.4 JTDM 20v, the 110 kW 1.9 JTDM 16v and the 90 kW 1.9 JTDM 8v).

All of these are fitted with new manual six-speed gearboxes, and some versions also offer automatic gears and robotised Selespeed gears, also six speed.
