On the outside, the Alfa 147 GTA reveals new features that reflect the changes to its chassis and mechanicals.
Alfa claims that these are also important stylistically - it make the vehicle look "broader, closer to the ground and more beefy while still ensuring instant recognisability".
On the outside the 147 GTA has broad wings that stand out at the front to accommodate the generous 17 inch wheels.
At the rear, the new version features a bigger bumper.
Inside there are a new three-spoked steering wheel, gear lever with leather gaiter and surrounds in Puma grey.
The sporty pedals include aluminium pedal covers and footrests with rubber inserts and ergonomic shapes.
The seats are sports-configured with leather upholstery: this comes in one shade (black) or as a two-tone combination.
The front seats come with a built-in head restraint and adjustable seat. They are divided by an armrest with a storage compartment. The rear seat offers the same sports configuration but all the comfort of a true five-seater.
The control panel also displays new features, with special gauges and a black background.
