If you are a tall driver or you tend to carry in the trunk stuffs of large dimensions, the BMW 5-Series F10 Gran Turismo F07 528i 258HP automatic, which is by 152 mm higher than the Alfa Romeo 166 II 2.0 i 16V T.Spark 150HP manual, would be appropriate pick for you. However, these two cars do not vary much it the aspect of its height and it should not be much observable.
A stick shift with which the Alfa Romeo is equipped is more simpler construction and is cheaper in use, however, also it is less comfortable because there is no need to work with the clutch to shift gears and it can be lot of inconvenience in a jammed urban traffic where drivers have lots of frequent stop and go conditions. An automatic gearbox put in the BMW 5-Series F10 Gran Turismo F07 528i 258HP automatic with 8 – speeds gearbox is in our opinion better one to have.
