2016 Alfa Romeo 4C Buyer's Guide

The 2016 Alfa Romeo 4C Coupe is a two-seat sports car (also available as a convertible) that is extremely significant for the Alfa Romeo brand, in that it’s the only Alfa Romeo vehicle currently available in the United States. (Later in 2016, it’ll be joined by the new Alfa Romeo Guilia.) The 4C is a fast car; though some sports car aficionados might think its specs are a little low (especially for an Italian car), the 4C is also extremely lightweight, which helps balance out the entire experience. Alfa Romeo uses carbon fiber extensively throughout the 4C, which improves weight and strength, as well as styling. The Alfa Romeo 4C made its debut for the 2015 model year, and for 2016, the 4C is relatively unchanged.

What's the difference between trims?

What makes it move?

For 2016, the Alfa Romeo 4C remains fairly straightforward. The engine, which is mounted behind the cockpit, is a 1.7-liter turbocharged four-cylinder unit that makes 237 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. It’s paired to a six-speed automated manual gearbox that sends the power to the rear wheels. Thanks to this power, two passengers can enjoy the 0-60 sprint in just 4.3 seconds. And due to the Alfa Romeo 4C’s mid-engine configuration, the vehicle achieves good handling and driving dynamics.

Why buy the 2016 Alfa Romeo 4C?

The 2016 Alfa Romeo 4C is an inexpensive way to own a new Italian sports car (at least in relative terms) and its unique styling is definitely an attention-getter. Though the 4C is noisy, has awkward ingress and egress, and isn’t suitable for every lifestyle, it is quite good at what it does: go fast, and get plenty of attention in the process. The Alfa Romeo 4C provides a thrilling driving experience, provided driver and passenger don’t have high expectations in terms of luxury or comfort. The cockpit is tight, the engine is right behind the driver, and there’s not much in the way of padding or sound dampening. But Alfa Romeo designed the 4C for buyers looking for exactly that: a sports car with few distractions.
