The Alfa Romeo 159 is probably one of the best looking mid-sized sedans around right now and our friends in Australia are getting a new engine and gearbox option in their's. The Aussie version already had a 2.4L turbo-diesel available, but now a 1.9L entry-level diesel is being made available. The 147 hp turbo-diesel has 236 lb-ft of twist, and achieves 33mpg on the combined driving cycle. Both diesels as well as the 3.2L V-6 are available with a new Q-Tronic 6-speed automatic transmission that features manual selection shifting and an optional paddle shifter. Hopefully, someday we will see these Alfas back here in the States, complete with diesels that provide good mileage and fun driving.
