Alfa Romeo is a brand you identify with perfectly styled roadsters, delightful cars, shocking convertibles, and very intense sportscars. In 2004 in any case, Alfa Romeo dispatched the 156 crosswagon. Presently you could buy a home, with a diesel motor, 4WD and high ground leeway, with an Alfa Romeo identification.
Be that as it may, the crosswagon turned out to be very well known, belive it or not. The way that Alfa Romeo made a bequest with numerous qualities simular to the Audi A6 Allroad, Volvo XC70, and the Subaru Legacy Outback, at a lower cost, was something a great deal of families was searching for. In Norway for instance, the 156 Crosswagon helped offers of Alfa Romeo`s signifigantly.
Regardless of that the Crosswagon seemed like something an Alfa Romeo shouldn`t resemble, the 156 Crosswagon was very lively and light-footed, belive it or not. Offered only with Fiat`s stunning 1.9 JTD unit and a 6-speed manual, the combo was obviously a dependable and strong combo. The 156 Crosswagon was underway the distance until 2007, and was supplanted with the 159 Q4. The 159 turned into a totally diverse kind of domain contrasted with the 156 crosswagon.
While this appears like a totally pointless auto to have in the GT-Series, I think the 156 Crosswagon would be a great auto to trick other individuals on the web. Additionally, this is an Alfa Romeo some don`t even know exist! What’s more, the torque of the diesel motor, makes this an auto which would be a rocket out of corners.
Inside, the new model additionally offers an instrument board of progressive plan, a compass incorporated with the mirror, exceptional covers and tangles, a snappy new innovative trim on the facia and a shiny new treatment for the focal comfort and controlling wheel boards. Choices incorporate a top-quality inside with seats, facia and boards trimmed in grosgrain cowhide. Also the way that the model offers five genuine seats that make for a perfect situation on long motorway trips or exciting alternate routes.
Finally, the new model additionally offers a decision of three determinations (Progression, Distinctive and Luxury) and nine body shades of which 4 outlined uniquely for the model by the Arese Style Center. All body shades include a particular tone on tone treatment process. In any case, this is bundling; the genuinely radical new component of the Alfa Romeo 156 Crosswagon Q4 is its changeless Q4 four wheel drive framework with three differentials (the focal one is a self-locking Torsen C framework) that forever disseminates roll over the front and back wheels.
This creative framework is intended to offer crest execution under the hardest conditions. The new Alfa Romeo 156 Crosswagon Q4 is the normal recipient of studies, research and advances in the four wheel drive field that have brought about a bleeding edge off-road vehicle ready to fulfill the most requesting clients.
Perpetual four wheel drive offers top execution in light of the fact that transverse hold is boosted because of a diminishment in the longitudinal engagement of every tire. The perpetual part of the framework permits an extraordinary harmony amongst understeer and oversteer, deserving of a genuine games auto, ready to offer drivers a simple, fulfilling drive together with the best dynamic security: understeer is minimized while oversteer is anything but difficult to control since it is contained and progressive.
A mountain street, a stony track, a frigid surface or a curve taken in driving rain: every single intense circumstance and perfect spots to test the new auto’s readiness and quality as far as possible. Clients driving an Alfa Romeo 156 Crosswagon Q4 can appreciate a dynamic, lively roll over traditional street and motorway courses while profiting from the auto’s bad habit like hold and execution over less ordinary courses. Considering this brief, the architects and specialists utilized at the Arese plant have thought of an auto that might be portrayed as an inventive all-rounder. The heart of the configuration is the Alfa Romeo Q4 four wheel drive framework that permits dynamic dispersion of footing amid increasing speed and over-keep running as indicated by the level of hold on the ground. The Torsen C self-locking differential oversees drive torque in the most fitting way: when quickening, to stay away from exorbitant oversteer, it can guide somewhere in the range of 80% of torque to the back wheels to leave more side hold for the front wheels. Then again, while oversteering, it can exchange just 40% to guarantee enhanced side hold for the back wheels.
The Alfa Romeo 156 Crosswagon Q4 is accordingly a coordinated rough terrain auto that is self-avowedly an Alfa in its uncompromising feeling of control and driving fulfillment. Driving solace and element conduct have dependably been particular elements of Alfa Romeo autos: on the Alfa Romeo 156 Crosswagon Q4, they add up to a genuine quality. Henceforth the selection of a suspension format that will undoubtedly bid: the reconsidered front suspension includes a high twofold wishbone arrangement while the back is MacPherson sort with transverse bars of various lengths. This offers more noteworthy capacity to assimilate the surface unpleasantness run of the mill of rough terrain courses on the grounds that the wheel pulls back lengthways without influencing the controlling and the antisquat point has been expanded. The guiding reaction additionally offers the best linearity and accuracy because of the twofold wishbone design. Extraordinary roadholding implies the auto can self-adjust itself superlatively, even under the hardest conditions in light of the fact that the back wheels guide relentlessly notwithstanding when subject to horizontal burden. The backside guarantees the best security amid rapid moves and offers all the spryness of a genuine Alfa Romeo over restricted blended courses.
The Alfa Romeo 156 Crosswagon Q4 consolidates incredible driving solace with all the rich demeanor of an Alfa sports model. This is on account of the new model accompanies a force unit that permits the auto to manage any on-street circumstance: the effective 110 kW (150 bhp) 1.9 JTD 16v M-Jet motor is joined with a lively 6-speed manual gearbox. The 4 chamber in line motor with bore of 82 millimeters and stroke of 90.4 mm is fit for conveying a force yield of 110 kW at 4000 rpm and a torque of 305 Nm (31 kgm) at 2000 rpm.
The new turbodiesel has experienced a few designing changes to expand execution and motor torque at low speeds and to decrease clamor and vibration levels. For instance, the Common Rail framework utilized on the 1.9 JTD M-Jet 16v incorporates two new systems for consequently adjusting and adjusting the diesel infused to lower commotion and decrease vibration.
On the wellbeing front, the Alfa Romeo 156 Crosswagon Q4 is additionally unrivaled. This is because of a slowing mechanism that guarantees quick, progressive braking furthermore shorter ceasing separations; ventilated front plates with a width of 330 millimeters with Brembo altered aluminum calipers with four cylinders (38 and 42 mm) and an ABS framework with four dynamic sensors complete with an EBD electronic brakeforce wholesaler. Outright authority of the street under all conditions, however extreme, is likewise guaranteed by VDC (Vehicle Dynamic Control), Alfa Romeo’s rendition of the ESP (Electronic Stability Program). This energetic element is not meddling as one would anticipate from a genuine Alfa in light of the fact that it permits the driver the full fulfillment of controlling the vehicle the length of the conditions are controllable and does not mediate until instantly before the circumstance gets to be basic.
ASR (Anti Slip Regulation), a vital part of the VDC, streamlines footing at any pace with the guide of the brakes and motor control. On the off chance that the auto slips, the ASR slices in naturally to stack the footing onto the inverse wheel with great hold to accomplish an impact like that of a self-locking differential on both front and back axles. In the event that the driver changes down unexpectedly in poor grasp conditions, the MSR (Motor Schleppmoment Regelung) slices into reestablish torque to the motor and avert sliding as a consequence of wheel lock.
