OK, I have been searching for a long time for a replacement for my well sorted JTS and I think I have found one, a 2.4SV Brera, I am about to put the button, so to speak. Can anybody give me a good reason not to do this.
I had one for a few days when my GT was having a bit of work done, didn't like it at all. I'd always liked the way the Brera looks, apart from maybe having a bit of a big ar5e, but big in a J. Lo. kind of way.
However I was disappointed with the cabin, the rear legroom is a joke for such a big car (mind you I can't remember the last time anyone was in the back of the GT), the driving position was too high, far too much brushed aluminium (if that's what it is) going on which was damaged where anything attached to the key dangles.
The seats were nowhere near as good as the GT and I found the steering wheel ugly. The radio and climate controls looked awful compared to the GT.
No idea what engine was in it but performance was lacklustre to say the least. I did like the panoramic roof though.
Only thing, for me, it had going for it was the way it looked from outside, oh how I wish they'd facelifted the GT with the Brera/159 nose.
