Alfa Romeo 156
Volkswagen Golf - 266 points
Audi A6 - 265 points
Another case of love at first sight. This time, mostly for the appealing looks Walter da Silva masterly gave to 156. Elegant, muscular lines mixed with undeniable Alfa Romeo family airs of classic times. The perfect balance to restore the Alfa image. In top of an enjoyable engine line and much improved quality, this median saloon had new and very refined suspension layout so to offer an impeccable roadholding. In an unusual coincidence, 40 out of 56 Jury members gave their top points to the Alfa.
