Limited edition Alfa GT is cheaper and even more stylish
27 April 2007

Meet the latest limited edition to appear in the Alfa line up, the GT 'BlackLine'. It comes with a Bose sound system, unique 18-inch alloys and black metallic paint, plus plenty of leather and aluminium in the interior.There will be 300 BlackLine editions made, and best of all they're priced below the current entry-level versions. A 2.0-litre JTS BlackLine will set you back £19,980, saving a negligable £15 on the original entry model, and the 1.9 JTDM example will cost £20,980 – a saving of £220. The top of the range 3.2 V6 GT hasn't received the limited edition treatment.The Alfa GT has never been the great performance coupe that Alfa had hoped, especially with competition like the Mazda RX-8 and Nissan 350Z available at the same price. Despite this, it's a great-looking car, and a cheaper, better-equipped version is no bad thing.

    Hyundai's funky-looking Kona crossover with a peppy three-cylinder engine makes all the right noises for the car to be a success in a crowded segment

    First Drive
    17 October 2017
    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
