I agree, although with the amount of stuff that our 3 month old daughter has already, I'll be needing a bloody transit van, never mind a SW!!

It's tough - I voted SportWagon but there really isn't much in it for me. Unlike the 156, where I always thought the SportWagon was the nicer.

Tough call as the Sportwagen looks in grey with smoked windows but I voted saloon (specifically in the Ti guise )

Neither is ugly but the saloon looks more purposeful with its flared out rear arches In Ti spec it's lush

Re: Which is the better looking 159??

I voted for Sportwagon as on my avatar, I think it would have to be in the Ti, I havenít actually seen the Sportwagon as a Ti yet but I have some on the way from Italy.

Although the 159SW is the sexiest estate
around. It is unfortunately, still an estate.


Therefore: saloon.

Hmmm, SW, but maybe that's because I need one with 2 small children and all their stuff

No worries (I'll get you later )

Sportwagon (obviously); it's elegant, imposing and a more cohesive design IMHO. I also can't see past the huge blanking plates on the rear side windows of the saloon that suggest they didn't finish the drawings.

But, hey, they're both beautiful cars so who really cares?

Re: Which is the better looking 159??

Prefer the looks of the saloon me self. Although the SW is also one of the most good looking cars in its own category, if not the first!!!
At the end, its all about the need one will have in order to choose between them two.

Re: Which is the better looking 159??

The back of the 159 could be a smoother transition from the main body - is the only negative thing I could say - the SW does not have that problem so looks so much sleeker as a car.

But I would not choose a SW and would go for a Saloon any day....

I am so confused....
