‘Your re­la­tion­ship with a 156 is un­likely to end in heartbreak’

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling - CHRIS HOPE FEATURES EDI­TOR

‘For so long, buy­ing an Alfa Romeo has been a process that many re­garded as be­ing driven by the heart, rather than the head. And yet, although the 156 is cer­tainly at odds with the sen­si­ble op­tions of­fered from the same era, more so than other Al­fas, your re­la­tion­ship with a 156 is un­likely to end in heartbreak so long as you buy with care and seek out an ex­am­ple that has been prop­erly looked af­ter.

‘It looks spe­cial from the out­side, feels spe­cial from the in­side and is cer­tainly spe­cial to drive. While the lat­ter is es­pe­cially true of the GTA, the lower spec­i­fi­ca­tion cars are by no means best avoided. Quite the op­po­site, as it’s th­ese cars that of­fer the best value for money.’
