On this exclusive Alfa 147 model, sportivity and distinguished styling are closely united, most visibly by the eye-catching new two-tone paintwork called “Livrea Bicolore”. Several of the details (including the side mirrors and rear roof lip-spoiler) and the entire roof section are painted in a shining black (Nero) colour finish, making up a perfect combination with the available colours for the rest of the car (Rosso Alfa, Grigio Navona, Grigio Stromboli, and Blu Digione). The seats are also available in a new black and red colour combination.
The visual aspects of sportivity increase on this Alfa model thanks to the fact that it sits lower on its wheels. New 17-inch alloy wheels, polished chrome detailing, such as the end of the exhaust, and meaty 215/45 tyres combine to set this car out from the crowd. The ’Black Line’ specification is completed with extras including VDC with ASR, ABS complete EBD, 6-airbags, audio with CD, climate control and steering wheel and a leather-finished gearknob.
Alfa Romeo has thus updated to a maximum the popular Alfa 147, and it now offers everything needed to make this model range even more desirable then ever. In fact prices remain almost the same as before. The basic Alfa 147 version is now better equipped with the addition of integrated VDC with ASR, and 16-inch alloys, plus audio with CD player. With these additions the Alfa 147 is brought right up to date with newer entrants in this segment, in terms of styling, safety and comfort. All engines conform to Euro 4 emission limits.
The ’Progression’ level features foglights, 6 airbags, VDC with ASR and MSR, ABS completed with EBD and Brake Assist, rear safety belts and headrests, roof spoiler on the 3 door hatch, 16 inch alloys, 205/55 tyres, steering wheel and gear knob in finished in leather, aluminium dashboard finish, on board computer with display, front and rear electric windows (rear on 5-door), colour-coded electric door mirrors and remote central locking. The ’Distinctive’ option adds dual zone climate control, side arm rests, AlfaTex material seats, cruise control, audio controls on the steering wheel and gear controls on the Selespeed version. Lastly ’Exclsuive’ adds 17-inch alloy wheel, phone controls mounted on the steering wheel, voice recognition and Connect NAV+, audio CD, colour display, GSM dual band phone system, navigation control panel and ’Alfa Service’ connection.
