Crosswagon. Are they any good.

I am looking to get a newer car to replace ma old 1998 156 2,0TS.

I have been looking at a 156 crosswagon. I think it is a 1,9JTD. What are peoples opinion on this cars? Are they any good? How is it with the transmission? Is it reliable or is it known for giving problems? Does this cars have less or more problems then a normal 156? As it is the latest produced 156 you would think that they should be very good cars.

How do they drive? Are they pigs as they are higher or do they still have a bit of alfa feeling in them.

All inputs are welcome.

They are meant to be pretty good and much sort-after.

Only available as a 1.9 DERV

I don't think they ever made it to the UK though.

They were only LHD, so never officially sold in the UK.
They were a nice spec with 330mm Brembos too.

Two versions.
Crosswagon Q4 and a Sportwagon Q4
Sportwagon Q4 has a lower ride-height than the Crosswagon.

Never driven one, so can't comment on that.

Crosswagon Q4

i have been driving CW for about two years now. Previously owned 156. Just can say that CW is completely different than simple 156. 1.9jtd after remap got about 185hp and 390Nm. Q4 is really fun to drive especially in snow
Actually going to sell mine as we had just few days of snow last years.
