I really struggled with this.
I don't think the DS is remotely good looking. Unfavourable as this may sound it really does nothing for me.
The 159 has the best looking front I have seen on any car ever. The profile isn't bad but I don't believe it is the best looking saloon in profile.
We're on an Alfa forum and as such I really don't think it is fair. I think I'm in a minority on here as to the DS not being a striking design.
So ultimately although I hate myself for it I went 159. Hate because it is an Alfa forum and that is just not fair. Like, because it is a good looking car to me and in fact I think the Alfa 939 Spider is one of the prettiest cars ever, up with Miura, 288GTO, 250GTO, F355 and 458.
I have looked around at supposedly good looking saloons judged on the webz. I really don't see any of those saloons that make me drool today. There are OK ones (I actually like my CLA) but I would never buy one as my favourite car. It has to be convertibles (A4 convertible to my mind is a pretty car), coupes (many coupes make me drool) and last of all supercars and all of them along with a few hypercars.
I am hoping the 159 takes it based purely on no other car in the universe coming near it for front end beauty.
I'm sorry I could not vote for the DS but the 159 is a favourite and I would be voting for it just because this in an Alfa forum if I went for the DS.
I'm not going anywhere, I'm just going.
Statements above are all my own opinion and not fact.
