Click above to view the updated Alfa Romeo 159 in hi-res

We had plenty of reason to frequent the Alfa Romeo pavilion at this year's Geneva show. After the unveiling of the production 8C Spider along with the updated Brera and Spider came the revisions to the 159 sedan and Sportwagon.

Like its two-door counterparts, the changes to the 159 consist of a few small updates that don't interfere with the model's stunning lines. Better ergonomics and new electronics update the interior, while weight reduction where the car meets the road should help the car's driving dynamics slightly. Most importantly, however, the tweaks which Alfa Romeo announced for the 159 range gave us and our cameras another reason, as if we needed one, to get reacquainted with one of our favorite European sports sedans and wagons. To see the product of our emotional reunion, click on the thumbnails below and jump to our high-resolution image gallery.

      The 159 is a classic Alfa Romeo. It’s a beautiful car with a handsome, timeless shape. The Giorgio Giugiaro design hasn’t been touched and really doesn’t need to be. The interior again, is classic Alfa with gorgeous hand stitched dark leather and brushed alloy.

      sorry, i can't see any differences between that model and my 2006 alfa 159.

      this is just the 'ti' version-no facelift

        Agreed, the blog at the top of the page notes that it is only small tweaks to the inner workings of the car. The TI displayed is not a new model, 159 TI has been available since 08 registration plates, its the one displayed because the TI is the model with all the gadgets as standard, not the top of the range 159*, the TI's have 2.4ltr JTDm turbo diesel not the 3.2ltr v6 on the top of the range models.

      I was in Europe83 this past summer, and these things even stand out there. It is an amazing design that will last for ages. Sadly we wont get it here in the US.
