Alfa 156: Equipment and trim


Standard equipment
The Alfa 156 takes the brand's contribution to the medium segment into a whole new dimension. In fact this model sets this market some new standards in looks, performance, driving pleasure and safety. In doing so, it offers a comprehensive range of equipment and trim that represents real value for money right from the entry level 1.6 T. Spark and 1.9 JTD.
The following equipment is standard on both these versions:
- ABS and driver's airbag;
- helpful items like central locking; like facia controls for the boot and filler cap release; like electric front windows, headlight adjustment, one-touch electrically-operated door mirrors, check control, front ceiling light with reading spotlight, three-level adjustment of lighting intensity on the instrument panel;
- safety-enhancing features like electronic pretensioners for the front seat-belts and height-adjustable head-restraints.
Both the 1.6 T. Spark and 1.9 JTD have 15" wheels and bear the Alfa logo on the wheel trim; in detail: 185/65 HR 15 tyres and 6J x 15" wheels; body-coloured bumpers; titanium-coloured console trim; velour carpet and cloth upholstery; radio fitment (wiring) with aerial in the rear window. The 1.8 T. Spark has 185/65 VR 15 tyres, plus heated door mirrors, rear armrest, ski tunnel and diagonally patterned cloth upholstery.
Finally, the three most powerful versions, the 2.0 T. Spark, the 2.5 V6 24V and the 2.4 JTD get even more lavish equipment. That means upholstery in ribbed velour (with an embroidered Alfa logo), wooden steering wheel and gear lever knob; a deep printed mahogany-effect strip on the central console; adjustable lumbar support on the driver's seat; foglights and tailpipe terminal in polished stainless steel.
In addition, the Alfa 156 2.0 T. Spark is equipped with 205/60 VR 15" tyres with alloy wheels and 6.5J x 15" wheels. The Alfa 156 2.5 V6 24V also features a six-speed gearbox, automatic climate control, electric rear windows, alloy wheels and 205/50 WR 15 tyres.

Options
These are supplied both individually and grouped into logical packages, each created to endow the Alfa 156 with a particular style: sports car or luxury saloon. There's even a 'winter' pack. It all goes to show how far Alfa Romeo is prepared to go in satisfying its customers' demands for an increasingly personalised car. By choosing one of these packs the buyer gets a car equipped with all the options needed to give the chosen version the 'all-over' look being sought. And with an economic advantage too, since the pack costs less than the same contents ordered individually.
The Sport pack includes Blitz cloth or Momo leather upholstery or Blitz cloth-covered Recaro seats; special 16" wheels with 205/55 WR 16 tyres; low ride set-up, sideskirts, leather steering wheel and gear lever knob, rear armrest with ski tunnel, a GSM aerial, an instrument panel with red graphics on a black background and a deep-printed carbon-effect console trim.
The Deluxe pack for the 1.6 and 1.8 T. Spark and the 1.9 JTD includes: velour-upholstered seats, mahogany steering wheel and gear lever knob, rear armrest with ski tunnel, automatic climate control system, deep-printed mahogany-effect console.
The Winter pack comprises: foglights, headlight washers and heated seats.
There are many more listed options for buyers to order individually. Among them: side airbags (see the safety chapter), third head-restraint and inertia reel seat-belt for the back seat, sports-style spoiler (for enhanced aerodynamic efficiency), the integrated radio with CD cable and filter effect for selecting the musical arrangement you wish, and a Radiophone. This combined radio and GSM phone has a power output of 4x35 Watts (4 speakers, one of them in two sections) and a keyboard for transmitting numbers. The equipment also operates as a GSM telephone with SIM card acting as a safety code key card.
