New Brera heads for UK

The new Alfa Romeo Brera goes on sale in the UK on April 8.

Six versions of the new Alfa Brera, priced from £22,800 – £29,850 on-the-road, will be available from launch. Two new petrol engines – a 2.2 litre 185bhp four-cylinder unit, and (available one month after the launch date) a 3.2 litre 260bhp V6 and a 2.4 litre 20v 200bhp MultiJet (JTDM) unit will be on offer.

The Brera was designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro in collaboration with Alfa Romeo Centro Stile, and built by Pininfarina.

Sharing a new platform and components with the 159, the chassis of the Brera combines a high double wishbone front suspension system with a new, multilink rear configuration.

Unique to this class, the Brera may also be equipped with a fixed, full-length, laminated and tinted glass sunroof incorporating an electrically controlled, three-section interior blind.

Safety features include up to eight airbags, seven of which are standard equipment, seatbelt pre-tensioners and a fully integrated fire prevention system, electronic braking, traction control and stability systems fitted as standard.

The Brera is available in two trim levels; Brera and Brera SV.
