2009 Updates

In 2009, Alfa Romeo introduced two new Euro 5-compliant engines for the Alfa 159 range - the 1750 TBi and the 2.0 JTDM.

These two new petrol and diesel engines complemented the existing petrol and diesel units in the 159 range and introduced a combination of increased torque and power with lower emissions and greater fuel efficiency.

Engines

The new, lightweight, variable valve timing, direct injection turbocharged 1750i Petrol Engine develops 200 bhp along with 320 Nm of torque. The new 16-valve, twin overhead camshaft 1742 cc petrol unit brings better fuel efficiency, along with lower CO2 emissions, down to 189 g/km. The maximum torque of Alfa Romeo’s petrol engine is achieved at 1400 rpm, with maximum power reached between 4750 and 5500 rpm. From a standstill, the 1750 TBi Alfa 159 Saloon can reach the 0 - 62 mph benchmark in 7.7 seconds, before topping out at 147 mph.

Alfa’s new 2.0 JTDM powerplant develops 170 bhp available at 4,000 rpm, and delivers its maximum torque of 360 Nm between 1750 rpm and 2500 rpm. The new 2.0 JTDM powered Alfa 159 covers the 0 – 62 mph sprint in 8.8 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 136 mph. CO2 emissions have been reduced to142 g/km.

 

Trims

In 2009 Alfa Romeo also introduced a new range structure which features five trim levels: Turismo, Turismo Sport, Elegante, Lusso and TI.

First of the two new trim levels, Turismo Sport offers drivers sporty upgrades including 17” sport alloy wheels, Blue&Me, sports seat cloth, sports leather steering wheel with remote audio controls and gear knob, and sports dials.

The new Elegante trim adds additional style to the Turismo equipment, including rear parking sensors, visibility pack and luxury Alfatex® interior.
