f you like your Italian cars quattroporte style, then the Alfetta sedan is something of a unique jewel. They represent a certain ‘sweet spot’ between the lively go-kart character of the Giulia Super, and the V6 refinement of the Milano/75. At the same time, it is much more capable and comfortable than the 1750/2000 Berlina models. It’s got sweeter styling than any of them (in a quiet, classy way, like the best Italian sedans), and handles far better than any of them, with unbelievable balance that makes a driver feel as if his car is reading his mind and will execute any reasonable order with aplomb. The bonus is that Alfetta prices are only just beginning to follow the older Alfas, so they still represent a comparative bargain.
