Thinking of getting a gta so my question is 147 or 156

1904 40
I've had a gt 3.2 in the past but sold it to start up the business. Now I've got the itch for another busso. I'm tempted by the 156 as ive owned loads of 147's but what's the better car 156 or 147.

156 handling is easier as its longer. 147 more nutty than squirrel poo.

Horses for courses. Depends on need. Mainly one person,driven for fun. 147.

One or more passengers, driven as a daily with need for a bit of poke. 156.

As above, plus need to luge large loads to the dump, from the DIY shop or to bury bodies in the woods, 156 SW.

147 is quicker. 156 Handles better.

I think I loved my 156 GTA more than both the 147's...

Drive both then make a decision.

I have a GT V6 now and I think it's the best of the lot.

As said. 147 is ever so slightly quicker on paper due to weight but in the real world it's meaningless. 156 handles better. Gt is nice handler but didn't get the gta name and 10bhp down. Your choice

Can of worms here lol.

My dad has a 156 GTA, I have a 147 GTA. I actually think the 147 is more comfortable in the back, my head rubs against the ceiling in the back of my dads 156, the 147 offers a bit more headroom in the back.

The 147 is more practical IMO too, as the rear seats fold down!

You forgot the SW which solves all of those issues whilst remaining the better handler and giving even more space. Even though I haven't got one I have to agree the SW is the better car
