For me, this is a cool car - ditch all the hairdresser stuff. Proper little sports car. Alfa should be making this.

I think Fiat have bodged their version, losing the delicacy.

Yep, fantastic. I prefer the naturally aspirated Rev happy engine than the FIATA turbo engines.

If you look at that arse square on it is miserable, down turned and frowny.

The 124 has a hint of an upturned smile.

I like the mx-5, would buy one, but the 124 has a special something about the look of it.

I know that the Japanese idea that inanimate object all posses a spirit
has lead, over the years, to a design language that includes smiley faces
on inanimate object. (Cars, radios, fridges...)

But I never knew that also applied to smiley arses.





HM will be chuffed.

Cool.
Looks great to me, miles better looking than the Fiat.
Seems to look more Italian than the Fiat as well. Babies mixed up at birth?
I really wish Alfa had seen the joint project through instead of it going to Fiat.

A dumpy thing with droopy corners. In my opinion.

At last, someone with proper eyesight. It looks more like a melted welly every time I look at it.

I would bring into question the visual acuity of a Multipla owner...

What could you possibly mean?
The purchase of the Multipla seven years ago was not on an aesthetic basis. That was simply a bonus.

I like it. Well looks wise at least

It doesn't look quite as feminine as its previous incarnations

...that's because the Fiat's taken on the girly-car duties whilst the Mazda gains a hefty dollop of style

Ah, maybe they are trying to get away from the 'girl's car' stigma then.
Someone will now tell me that women's rugby has taken off in a big way...

I prefer the previous generation MX5 with the Soft top.
