Alfa Romeo's stand at the Paris Motor Show also showcases the MY2011 Alfa Romeo 159. Both its saloon and Sportwagon versions underwent a styling revamp inside the cabin, with the availability of optional kits that allow customers to truly personalize their vehicles with an array of content.
The Alfa Romeo 159 displayed at the Paris Motor Show features the exclusive "Rosso Competizione" livery and is powered by the new 2.0 JTDM engine (Euro 5) that develops 136 hp of output.
This new powerplant, which complement the 159's Euro 5 diesel range, will be positioned in what is considered as the most important diesel power band within segment D in Europe -- the new 2.0 JTDM engine.
The new 2.0 JTDM engine is perfect for those seeking a car that consumes less fuel and yet is able to deliver enjoyable and comfortable driving even in long trips. The Alfa Romeo 159 show car features the sporty TI Pack with the optional 19-inch spoked design wheels.
On a typical Alfa Romeo 159, the TI Pack adds certain external features like 18" "turbine" design alloy wheels, side skirts and oversized red brake calipers as well as lower sports ride – all resulting to a vehicle with outstanding road-holding capability.
The TI Pack also includes enhancements inside the cabin of the Alfa Romeo 159, adding elements like wraparound seats trimmed in black leather and Alcantara with red profiles, sports pedal unit in aluminium, and a kick plate with the TI logo as well as sports steering wheel in leather with radio control.
Other added interior elements include gear lever knob and handbrake lever trimmed in leather with red stitching as well as Blue&Me system and sports instruments. Optionally available are new carbon fiber inserts on the central console and steering wheel.
Likewise, the sports seats can be optionally trimmed in black or natural leather. On the other hand, visitors to Alfa Romeo's stand at the Paris Auto Show will be provided with brochures and customized totems pertaining to the products of FGA Capital, a finance company jointly owned by Fiat Group Automobiles and Crédit Agricole.
Specializing in the automotive sector, FGA Capital is set to operate within Italy and across Europe to support sales of all Fiat Group Automobiles and Chrysler brand vehicles by offering and providing financial products with high added value services.
