Alfa Romeo 147 1.6 16v Twin Spark 120HP

Alfa Romeo 147 belongs to the class of small family cars, which was produced from 2000 until 2010. During its production, more precisely in 2004, it underwent a restyling, so it got a much more aggressive look. He attracted a lot of sympathy with his appearance and striking, sophisticated design, both on the outside and inside, and the main “culprit” for that is the famous designer Walter de’Silva, who gave this car a really unusual look at the time.

Even in 2001, the Alfa Romeo 147 was named the best car in Europe. It was produced in a three- and five-door variant with a wide range of petrol and diesel units. 1.6 petrol with 105 and 120 horsepower, 2.0 with 150 horsepower and the prestigious strongest version 3.2 with 250 horsepower. Diesels are already widely known: JTD 1.9 engines with 100 and 115 horsepower, as well as Multi Jet 1.9 with 120, 140, 150 and 170 horsepower. We will present you the model that is most represented on our roads, and that is the Alfa Romeo 147 1.6 16v TS with 120 hp.

Engine with Twin spark technology

We can freely say that this model, although it belongs to small family cars, is excellent in fast driving, and it is very easy to break through city crowds, so driving it is a real pleasure. It is characterized by a very aggressive and recognizable design that fully depicts the unit located under the hood. Twin spark technology means that the engine has two spark plugs on one cylinder, which allows it to burn better and more accurately, and also causes quieter, better engine operation, but with more power and, most importantly, drivers, lower consumption. On the open road, this four-wheeler behaves quite well, so it is stable in curves, and although the handling was assessed as a bit stiffer, it proved to be more than good.

Anatomically shaped seats and a large number of partitions

The interior of the car is characterized by great and practical solutions, both in the form of a layout of controls and excellent finishing of plastic and canvas. All commands are clearly visible and at your fingertips, so using them is more than simple and practical. The Alfa Romeo 147 has anatomically shaped seats, which give a feeling of safety even when driving faster and more aggressively. The comfort and spaciousness of the front cannot be found in the rear of the car, so it can often be heard that the Alfa Romeo 147 is not a typical family car, although there are numerous compartments for storing small items in front and behind. always have a bottle of water or juice on hand. Also, if you are planning to go on a trip, know that he does not have a big trunk,

Due to the different unit, one can notice primarily a higher maintenance price, which is slightly above the average for this class of car. It is especially expensive to replace spark plugs that cost over 120 euros, and that is explained by the fact that for 147 models, they have no alternative, but only one, original spark plugs can be bought. Also, Alfa Romeo 147 has a very sensitive trap, which is damaged very quickly due to bad roads and careless driving, so we advise you to pay special attention to this part when buying a used car and be sure to visit a mechanic who will determine the condition of the trap. and whether repairs are needed, as well as centering.
