Summary:

Cheapest adventure ends expensive (for nothing)

Faults:

It's a very stylish and fast car with very good road-holding, but the service and running costs are too expensive. The full fuel tank (65 liters of gasoline) lasts for only approximately 230 kilometers (even if you do not let the turbocharger take you to hell).

There is so much noise in the cabin, all the 4 doors, seats, the ceiling: impossible to ride without the volume of the radio pumped up.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

If you had any idea what Alfa Romeo was about, you would enjoy the noise and the ride. You have one of the most superb feeling and handling cars in the world (fun too), but if you want a quiet, lifeless car that you can listen to the radio in, go back to bmw. Who listens to the radio in his Alfa Romeo anyway?
