Re: Brera 3.2 takes a kicking
No, that's not actually true- the 159 has been and continues to be by far the best selling executive saloon/estate in Italy(where Alfa sell the majority of their cars). The Brera just does not sell. It's been out-sold by the gt since it came out. Because the performance/handling/economy simply doesn't stand up to comparison with its rivals. Unlike the 159.
It's one thing being an Alfista, it's another being an ostrich, hiding your head in the sand saying everything will be ok, despite the car's lack of competitivity. As an Alfista I expect the best car in its class, as I was brought up to expect with my parents' Suds, Giuliettas, 75s, 156s etc and with my own Sud QV, GTV and 147GTA. The fact of the matter is that the Brera doesn't sell because the performance is crap. A TT rips it to shreds objectively. Don't try to tell me that the Brera has character etc. I already know. I'd still buy the Brera but I'd much prefer to buy a Brera that was actually class competitive. Alfa will learn from this mistake and come back stronger.
