While the reliability of Alfa Romeos has long been a hot-topic, a recent report by WhatCar? Reliability Survey saw that Alfa Romeo is actually within the top 5 most reliable vehicles (aged between 0-3 years old). This is above Honda, Hyundai and 25 other vehicles in the survey, showing just how much of an improvement Alfa Romeo has seen over the years. As a result, this particular brand has been encompassed by companies looking for a business car and individuals searching for a reliable car to cruise around in. If you’re looking to purchase an Alfa Romeo and you want to know which is the most reliable, then you’re in the right place.
While many of the previous Alfa Romeo models failed to impress, the Giulia Quadrifoglio delivered above and beyond expectations. Its sleek style, incredible interior, and excellent driving dynamics helped to make this superior hatchback one of the best of its kind. In fact, it was so popular when it was produced that it even made an edge to fight off the ever-popular BMW M3. Not only does this vehicle offer an almost unrivalled driving experience, but reliability on a new scale.
This Italian coupe is an interesting car, and is ideal for rally specialists looking for something a little different to add to their collection. This particular vehicle not only looks good, but performs in a reliability sense alongside the BMW 330i coupe – a major player in terms of reliable cars. Not only is this car reasonably priced, brand new at around £15,000 if you opt for the 3.2 V6, repairs are also not hugely expensive. However, one thing to watch out for is the suspension, so keep this in mind if you’re looking to purchase.
While this car was actually softly suspended, that’s only as a result of the time it was produced and not being able to impress as many people as Alfa Romeo was hoping. However, there are still a fair few second hand 156 GTA’s around, and if you can get your hands on one, you won’t regret it. The Saloon version of this car is the best option, and with a guide price of just £7000 you can be certain that you’re getting a bargain for this vehicle. It’s aesthetically pleasing, and is actually becoming somewhat of a collectible. However, that doesn’t mean that this particular vehicle is likely to break down on you any time soon, and is one of the most reliable Alfa Romeos ever produced.
The Alfa Romeo Alfetta, when it was first produced, was dubbed as sharp and modern, and was a surprisingly sensible choice for many car owners. While they are difficult to get hold of now, this old-school vehicle is still reliable. It lacked a little bit of the classic Alfa Romeo ‘vim’ but that wasn’t necessarily a bad thing for this particular vehicle as it remained popular for many years.
Unlike the numerous beautiful spiders and coupes that Alfa Romeo became known for, the Giulietta offered something a little different in order to help boost sales. In order to achieve this, Alfa Romeo has updated the traditional look with a refreshed design, as well as a 2.0 litre diesel engine and improved reliability to make it one of the best in the range.
With plenty of models on offer, the Alfa Romeo is moving far away from its traditional ‘unreliable’ status to make its mark against some of the best brands on the market.
