A 1.8 liter direct-injection turbo petrol/gasoline with 200 bhp (147 kW) and a 2.0 liter diesel with 170 bhp (125 kW) are added to the Brera Coupe and Alfa Spider range.

Alfa Romeo will be introducing two new engines into the Brera Coupe and Alfa Spider models in the U.K..

Previously introduced in the Alfa 159, the new 197 bhp (147 kW / 200 PS) 1750 Tbi petrol/gasoline and the 168 bhp (125 kW / 170 PS) 2.0 liter JTDm diesel will be available in the two models immediately.

The 197 bhp 1750 TBi engine (direct-injection turbocharged) will come with a hefty 320 Nm (240 lb-ft) of torque but also help keep CO2 emissions down on the cars (189 g/km for the Brera and 192 g/km on the Spider). And it will make them nimble enough on the road. The two models do the 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) sprint in 7.7 and 7.8 seconds, respectively, with the new power plant. Both also have a top speed of 146 mph (235 km/h).

The 2.0 liter diesel comes with 360 Nm (270 lb-ft) of torque and a CO2 emissions rating of 142 g/km for both models. But it slows them down a little, as their 0 to 62 mph sprints now take 8.8 seconds for the Brera and 9.0 seconds for the Spider.

As previously announced, the Brera and Spider also get a new trim called Italia Independent which includes a matte black titatinum finish for the exterior, 18-inch alloy wheels in black opaque turbine design, carbon fiber trimming and a radio and satellite navigation system.
