I am considering buying a 159
Hi, I'm seriously considerig buying a new car.
At the moment a have a Fiat Coupe 1.8. It is in very good condition and it is a 2000 model. I love it but after 6 year I think it is time to change it
My woman loves BMW and Mercentese cars mad.gif But there is no way to betray Italian cars! I am considering an Alfa 159 1.9 JTD or JTS.
I am considering a Black 159 with beige Alfatex seats and Black/Beige interior.
I am nearer to 1.9 JTD, the only thing that I don't like is that it is the only model of 159 that doesn't have ... 2 exhausts.
What do you think of all that? In my place we don't use to have diesels. How is the sound of the 1.9 JTD?
1.9 JTS has 160 bhp, 190Nm and 1480 kgr. 1.9 JTD has 150bhp, 280 Nm and 1535 kgr.
So, 1.9 JTS has 0-100 in 9.7, 0-1000m in 30.7 and 212 km/h max speed. For 1.9 JTD the number are 9.4, 30.8, 210.
Consuption for mixed circle is 8.7 lt/100 km for JTS and 6 for JTD.
I heard that desiels don't give a sporty drive and you need to make frequent gear changes to maintain speed. Is that correct?
