I drive a 1.9 in a 159SW. last week I was driving a 2.0ltr diesel in a Giulietta. Now I expect the gearing is different, but I thought that whilst there is lots of low down oomph in the 2.0ltr. it ran out of steam rather early, where the 1.9 would keep pulling. Mind you the 2.0ltr was very smooth and quiet. Also the gearbox was much nicer that the one in the 1.9.
The 2.0ltr should be better, and I would like to try one in a 159, it would be interesting.
Someone said to me, "so whats so special about an Alfa Romeo then?" I told him, "If you have to ask, you wont understand".
