2.4 JTDM (2005)

The Alfa 159, destined to replace the old Alfa 156. The fruit of Alfa’s long years of experience in the field of prestige sporting saloons, the Alfa 159 marks the birth of a new generation of cars. In particular, the ‘Alfa 159’ project uses innovative design methods, and an international team has managed (without stooping to compromise) to combine performance with hitherto seemingly irreconcilable goals – the utmost driving pleasure, high performance and distinctive style – with the very best performance in terms of safety, comfort and sturdiness. In other words, it leads the way among sporting saloons, with qualities stemming from a project that uses the most refined technologies: from the laser welding on the bodyshell to the wishbone suspension set-up, from the comprehensive electronic control systems to the Q4 four-wheel drive.

Designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro in collaboration with the Alfa Romeo Style Centre, the 159 has an aggressive, instantly recognisable style. The front offers a modern reinterpretation of the characteristic three-element air intake formed by the vertical ‘shield’ and the two horizontal ‘whiskers’, into which small round lights are fitted.

The imposing fenders and large-diameter wheels emphasise the car’s sporting temperament, while the groove that slices along at the level of the handles adds a dynamic look to the side. The car’s generous length and long wheel base have enabled the stylists to create a large, spacious passenger cabin more typical of a large saloon, while in terms of comfort, the on-board finish and equipment are those of a true flagship. And all this is achieved without sacrificing the quintessential qualities of any Alfa Romeo: outstanding road-holding and braking, even in the most extreme conditions, elegant solutions in terms of active safety and driving pleasure, and above all thrilling, cutting-edge engines.

The 159 remains true to this great Alfa tradition by offering three JTS direct injection petrol engines and three second-generation common-rail turbodiesels.

The three petrol units use the JTS (Jet Thrust Stoichiometric) combustion system of direct injection that delivers better engine performance, while the three diesel engines ensure excellent power and torque values in all driving conditions, combined with low fuel consumption.

Alfa’s legendary ‘cuore sportivo’ is best expressed by the 6-cylinder V 3.2-litre petrol engine that can deliver up to 260 bhp, a thrilling, elastic and smooth engine, while at the top of the diesel range there is the 2.4 JTDM, a 5-cylinder in-line, 20-valve unit that can deliver 200 bhp and a torque of 400 Nm at only 2000 rpm.
