Alfa 147 1.6 Twin spark power ?

Hi guys, my current car is a Golf FSI 1.6 which is pretty damn slow if I'm honest, I've just been looking at the Alfa 147 1.6 Collezione which has caught my eye, how will my golf compare to the power of the 1.6 TS alfa ? Obviously they will be pretty similar, however on parkers it says the Alfa has an extra 15bhp and with it being a lighter car will it be much nippier ? Has anyone got a 1.6 TS and how does it peform ?

It's mainly town driving I do, rarely on the motorway so that's not much of a problem

Are you sure it is 15hp more than your Golf?

The 1.6TS was 120hp (or 105hp for the lower spec version that wasn't officially sold in the UK).

The 1.6 is never going to amaze you with it's speed. But it will have much more character than the golf, is better handling and you have to work the engine quite hard to get the best out of it.

I'd try and find one for sale locally and give it a drive - trade sale only, don't go to a private sale if you're not serious
