Re: Fact or Fiction?

They probably will build and sell them but I would bet on a longer gap between the lower spec models being released and the GTA going on sale.

Re: Fact or Fiction?

With th ehigh fuel prices nowadays, I may actually be looking for a small, fuel efficient little car.... and Alfa did not have one before.... the 1.4 Turbo is still a hot little car.

haven't you driven a 1.4t-jet yet? it'll cream your twinny.

i believe the base diesel is the 1.6JTDm, which outperforms the 1.9JTDm. where did you get the idea it is a 1.4JTDm? (i've never heard of a 1.4JTDm, only the 1.3, 1.6, 1.9 & 2.4)
