Seeking an Alfa 147, need some advice
I am currently looking to buy an Alfa 147 and am after a little advice.
I'm 32 and passed my test last september (never needed to drive before then) so have been driving 10 months.
I currently run a 1.4 Astra, good enough first car but I need a car that can accelerate and wont make me soil myself at the busy roundabout on my daily commute.
I'm having a little trouble deciding between a 2.0 or a 1.6, the premium on my insurance between them would be £2 difference for the last 2 months of my policy, but around £150 when I renew, so rather obviously the 1.6 would be the more sensible choice.
I do around 250 miles per week mostly on A roads but have to go through a busy town each day and go on longer motorway journeys every couple of months.
What are the major differences in performace and driving style between the 1.6 and 2.0? Would it be a bit too much going from a 1.4 astra to a 2.0 147?
