Alfa Romeo 159
Alfa Romeo 159
A Fiat-Chrysler deal wouldn't be to Chrysler's benefit alone, of course. Fiat's getting something here, too. Specifically, Chrysler is opening the door for Fiat to enter the American car market with brands other than the ultra-high-end Ferrari and Maserati. In particular, Fiat sees an opportunity to finally re-introduce its Alfa Romeo luxury brand here.

If it does, Americans should be pleasantly surprised to see a line of sharp-looking cars that won't readily be confused with anything else on the road.

Matt Stone, executive editor of Motor Trend magazine, called the Alfa Romeo 159 "very stylish, inside and out." It also drives much, much better than any product Chrysler now offers.

It's probably won't come here until after it's redesigned or at least updated, though, he said.

A car like the 159 could also form the basis of mid-size sedan for Chrysler to replace the less-than-competitive Chrysler Sebring.
