The 156 is a compact executive car built by the Italian car manufacturer Alfa Romeo between the years 1997 and 2007.

Unveiled at the Frankfurt motor show, it replaced the aging 155 and enjoyed a great reception.

Along with its sister cars, the 147 and the 159, the 156 went on to win a plethora of awards, the best of which was arguably the European car of the year.

Assembled at the Fiat Group Factory in Pomigliano d’Arco in Italy, and also at the Manufacturing facility in Rayong, Thailand, the 156 was produced as a number of models, a saloon, a sports configuration and a cross wagon.

Seven engines spanned the range along with a number of features and premium materials as customizable options.

The 156 benefitted from low suspension, soft leather interiors and various extra packages.

Nearly one hundred years after production began, the Fiat Chrysler group bought Alfa Romeo in 2007 and went on to dictate a number of changes to various ranges and vehicles the company produced. Of this takeover, the SportWagen 156 became a victim and so was axed from the line, leaving just a saloon or the sports variant.

With its highly curved flanks, deep grille and retro look door handles, the 156 was typically a beautiful vehicle and the brainchild of the head designer Walter de’Silva. De’Silva went on to work on a number of vehicles after, on from the year 2008, he had a hand in creating the Volkswagen Golf, Scirocco, Polo, Amorak, Jetta, Passat, Sharan, Touareg, the newly revived Beetle and the Up!

After a facelift in 2002, the car could be bought with a matte-finish surface on some models with dual climate control, electric stability control and the newly installed technology, emergency brake assist. For premium trims, Bose surround speaks made up the impressive sound system.
