As with many cars bearing the Alfa Romeo badge: The GT is certainly stylish and attracts mostly positive comments.
The interior of the car is 'last generation' and closely related to that of the 147 Hatchback -with which it shares instrumentation and centre console, among other things.
But still a stylish place to be and the latest cars have undergone a mild facelift.
The chassis is a modified 156 platform.
My own car is a 1.9 JTD and has plenty of mid-range grunt and great at the pumps: having achieved 58mpg on a steady motorway trip.
You can typically expect 42-45mpg, even with some spirited driving.
The handling is responsive -but tends to rely on the electronic driving aids to stay in shape.
On a practical note: the load area is bigger than the styling might suggest and the rear seats fold too.Most cars have a ski or 'through loading' hatch.
Rear visibility is very poor and all but the earliest cars have standard parking sensors, or had them retro-fitted. You DO need them!
My car has given little problem in 15K of driving and has now covered 70K Miles.
The cambelt should be changed earlier than suggested and if buying used: I'd get it done upon purchase.
Yes the GT can suffer small irritations: but provided you give it some TLC - they are a lovely car.
Earlier petrol and diesel cars offer the best value for money - I would not pay £20K+ for a new GT.
The 3.2 V6 is no longer made: No doubt this has a great engine.But IMO the car doen't justify the fuel and running costs.
