Re: 156 V6 Stats
From Autocar 156 2.5 v6 (mph)
30-70 thru gears 6.7
For comparison the 2.0L GTV is
30-70 thru gears 7.5
The ride on the V6 with sports kit, isn't much worse than the GTV, which didn't have a brilliant ride itself.
I don't believe the 2.5v6 handles as well as the 2.0L GTV (or a 2.0L 156 T-spark) but its good enough.
I believe the V6 with the standard suspension is a little wollowy in comparison, although certainly more comfortable.
I'm not a doctor - but I really do recommend braking later
