Alfa Romeo 147 engine

The 147 is a car produced by Italian automaker Alfa Romeo since 2000. The 147 was also voted European Car of the Year for 2001. The new 147 was released in 2000 at the Turin Motor Show and it immediately won the European Car of the Year award, beating cars like the Audi A2 and the Mercedes C class with 51 of the 56 judges placing it top of their list.

The 147 was launched at the 2000 Turin Motor Show as a replacement for the ageing 145 / 146 hatchbacks, and is based on the running gear of the larger 156 saloon. It is available with 1.6- and 2.0-litre inline four-cylinder petrol engines and a 1.9-litre diesel engine.

147 Development

The 147 was face lifted in the end of 2004: new front grille, new headlights, new rear lights and interior were updated on all models besides the GTA version. Also new more powerful diesel engine arrived and suspension was also tweaked. In 2006 was launched 147 1.9 JTD Q2 version, which features a front Torsen limited slip differential. Alfa Romeo presented a new limited edition 147 called Ducati Corse in 2007 Bologna Motor Show. The car is equipped with 170 PS (130 kW; 170 hp) JTD diesel engine and Q2, a front Torsen limited slip differential.

The 147 is a more glamorous alternative to a Ford Focus, and an Italian answer to the Audi A3, BMW Compact and Mercedes Sport Coupe, it is available in three- and five-door form with engines including a 105bhp 1.6 Twin Spark and a 2.0-litre version of the same engine developing 150bhp. Two turbo diesels are also offered – diesels account for 30 percent of total 147 sales across Europe – and there’s also the highly sporty, 250bhp, 3.2-litre V6 GTA, which we review separately and which hasn’t undergone the facelift. The JTD diesels, both of four cylinders and 1.9 litres, come in 120bhp and 150bhp forms, the latter replacing the former 140bhp unit. The Selespeed and Easy Speed transmissions come only with the 2.0 Twin Spark. You might wonder why the 2.0 isn’t the direct-injection, 165bhp JTS unit used since 2002 in the larger Alfa 156 (whose platform, in shortened form, the 147 shares); the official answer is that ‘the Twin Spark is good enough’.

Freshening up the 147 towards the end of 2007, Alfa Romeo introduced the option of a’Q2′ limited slip differential (£450). This entailed a significant and costly re-engineering of the small Alfa’s front suspension but the pay-off is superior traction in slippery conditions or under hard acceleration. The Q2 option is only available with the 150bhp 1.9-litre diesel.

Over the years, the petrol engines used in the 147 are:

• 1.6 TS I4 engine with 1598 cc with output power of 77 KW and torque of 140 Nm with a top speed of 115 mph.
• 1.6 TS I4 engine with 1598 cc with output power of 88 KW and torque of 146 Nm with a top speed of 121 mph.
• 2.0 TS I4 engine with 1970 cc with output power of 110 KW and torque of 181 Nm with a top speed of 129 mph.
• 3.2 GTA V6 engine with 3179 cc with output power of 184 KW and torque of 300 Nm with a top speed of 153 mph.

The diesel engines are:

• 1.9 JTD 8V I4 engine with 1910 cc with output power of 74 KW and torque of 200 Nm with a top speed of 114 mph.
