2005 Alfa Romeo BreraReview
Italian Flair, Looks, Performance And Price. Combined With Good Build Quality = Yes! — Wonderful car to drive. The Ti pack offers quite a hard ride, but it improves the car a lot over the standard package with stiffer suspension etc. It just makes the car feel a lot lighter and more nible. Looks like build quality is solid (let's hope it proves to be just as reliable as our 147 which seems to go on and on... now at almost 200.000 kilometers of hard driving). Performance is adequate, with 200bhp standard (though now closer to 235). The engine is a peach, pulls strongly from 1.500 rpm onwards all the way up to 5.800 rpm (though now 6.300 rpm). Disappointing: no room in the back (except for the two symbolic seats) and the engine noise is quite damped. The nice growl only starts at about 5.900 rpm. Seriously good looking!
Primary Use: Commuting to work
Pros: If you like Italian emotion.
Cons: If you like roomy cars or characterless Germans.
