The Alfa Romeo 156 is a compact car with a label of sportiness and luxury, produced in sedan and station wagon bodies. 156 replaced the 155 model and was a very successful model. 156 designed by Alfa Centro Stile with Walter de’Silva as lead designer at the forefront. 156 great design with distinctive lateral lines, retro-style front door handles, a grille framing a dynamic front end - these are why the car is considered one of the most beautiful in its class. The 156 sedan was also one of the first to have concealed rear door handles to give the car the image of a coupe. The car had an air resistance coefficient (Cd) of 0.31 (worse than 155). The interior - clearly driver-oriented - is a typical style of Italian sports cars. 156 used the same Tipo platform derived from the Alfa Romeo 155, but was heavily modified. 156 front-wheel drive: with two-lever suspension at the front and independent multi-link suspension at the rear. Lighter aluminum is used in the suspension elements. The Alfa Romeo 156 continued the tradition of the 155 model in the ring race. The car has successfully participated in the British Touring Car Championship, as well as in various other European championships, mainly the WTCC and ETCC.
Hollywood star Catherine Zeta-Jones was promoting the 156 version of the Alfa Romeo wagon.
