Like Alfa Romeo says: Cuore Sportivo


Only a few problems which are normal for the first generation of every new model.

For example: I had a problem with the central locking.

Also with a button to handle the computer-screen, which is standard in the car.

All this was replaced under the guarantee.

General Comments:

This car is really the best I have ever had.

Very good performance.

Very good comfort.

A pleasure to ride with it.

I find that Italian cars always have something special and lovely, and that feeling will never disappear.

I will stay a FIAT-GROUP member for always.

Many people think still that Fiats and Alfa Romeos are still like in the years of 1960-1970, but I can assure you that they really changed.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
