2010 Alfa Romeo 159 pricing announced (UK)

The 2010 MY 159 that was presented at the Geneva autoshow in March, benefiting from the introduction of two brand new Euro 5-compliant turbocharged engines, the 1750 TBi petrol and 2.0 JTDM diesel, as well as a revised range structure for the UK market.

The new 159 1750 TBi gets a 1.75-litre direct injection turbocharged engine that makes 200bhp along with 320 Nm of torque, launching the saloon from rest to 62mph in 7.7 seconds before topping out at 147mph.

Alfa's new 2.0 JTDM diesel powerplant produces an output of 170bhp at 4,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 360Nm available between 1,750 rpm and 2,500 rpm. With this engine, the 159 covers 0–62 mph in 8.8 seconds and achieves a top speed of 136mph, while returning a combined fuel economy of 52.3mpg.

For the 2010MY 159, Alfa has introduced a new range structure which now features five trim levels: Turismo, Turismo Sport, Elegante, Lusso and TI.

The new Turismo Sport trim features 17" alloy wheels, Blue&Me, cloth sports seat, sports leather steering wheel with audio controls and gear knob and sports dials.

The new Elegante trim also adds features from the Turismo, including rear parking sensors, visibility pack (auto-dimming rear-view mirror and rain and dusk sensor) and specific seat and door panel upholstery.

I am very excited for 2010 Alfa Romeo 159 car. Alfa cars are my favorite. The new Turismo Sport looks stunning. The interiors are also great. Though expensive, this car performs well.
