Because Alfa only developed one floor pan, so we ended up with a car the size of a 166 with less room inside than a 147 due to the big transmission tunnel and rear diff space.
Also the suspension was over engineered to suit it making it heavy.
It really compromised the big sellers in the range in terms of packaging, for a model that seemed of little interest to most buyers
It's fine in the Brera, makes little difference to its packaging.
Do you know what I mean?
A full featured 'proper' 4wd system is laudable, but there is a good reason that no one else puts it in mainstream models, audi only put it in the RS models, with their smaller Mickey Mouse version in the cooking variants.
