From the iconic Brera to newer models like the MiTo, read on to find out what Alfa Romeo cars are all about.
Very much an 'enthusiast' marque, the Italian Alfa Romeo brand is closely linked with parent company Fiat. It shares engines, transmissions and 'platforms' (the floorpan and suspension) with Fiat, but styling is certainly an Alfa strong point. There are currently only two models in the Alfa line-up - the MiTo supermini and the Golf-sized Giulietta.

Alfa Romeos tend to have a sporting bent, though not all pack the sort of punch that their styling suggests. The lower-spec models cost less and are cheaper to run, but if you want the brawn to match the looks it'll cost you more.
