In the United States, Alfa Romeo recently began marketing their vehicles, most specifically the Gilia and Stelvio. Although Alfa Romeo offers a sports car, the 4C, there hasn’t been a very good marketing campaign within the U.S. for it. Not surprisingly, this has led to low sales numbers on the 4C in the states. With a starting MSRP of $55,900, the 4C is a practical sports car that won’t leave a 6-digit hole in your wallet. Usually, these cars are loaded into the $60k price range with options.

The Alfa Romeo 4C has been in manufacturing since 2013 in Modena, Italy. The design of the 4C is by Lorenzo Rapacity at Centro Stile Alfa Romeo. For a margin of the cost, this vehicle is basically Ferrari’s younger brother. It may not be as powerful or as fancy, but it feels and looks like a real sports car. Another feature that people dislike is the size of the vehicle. Although it is an estimate, this vehicle is optimal for a person under 6 feet tall and under 250 pounds. This is simply due to the Italian design that packs the most into a tiny sports car.

The Alfa Romeo 4C sports a transverse mid-engine 1.75-liter I4 with 237 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque. These numbers may not be comparable to many other sports cars, but in this tiny vehicle, they are quite impressive. The 4C can hit 60 mph in only 4.1 seconds according to Car and Driver magazine. The top speed of the 4C is 155 mph. This isn’t a major concern as most people won’t be driving their sports car beyond road legal speeds anyway. Unless, you have a chance to hit the Autobahn or a race track.

Aerodynamic, Fuel Efficient, & Lightweight

The Alfa Romeo 4C is a very light vehicle at only 2,465 pounds. The aerodynamics, light weight, and small engine allow the 4C to get 24 mph in the city and 34 on the highway. Note, these numbers are only in effect at respectable accelerations and speeds. Driving the 4C will usually give the urge to spool the turbo and make some fancy maneuvers. Simply, never forget to be respectful driving any sports car on the road at any time.

The United States Needs to Appreciate the 4C


Overall, the Alfa Romeo 4C is a greatly underappreciated sports car in the United States. Alfa Romeo may be to blame due to the poor marketing that has went into this car in the states. It is a very affordable car that could reach a wide base of sports car enthusiasts. It may not be a practical daily driver, but it is a practically priced weekend car. In conclusion, the Alfa Romeo 4C is a fun little sports car that deserves more respect and sales in the U.S.

Alfa Romeo 4C: Practical for Daily Driver?

Alfa Romeo 4C: A True Italian Sports Car

The Alfa Romeo 4C, an Italian sports car, can be considered the Ferrari’s younger sibling. It may not be as prestigious of a car as a Ferrari but that doesn’t matter. The Alfa Romeo 4C provides the driver with a true Italian sports car feel for a margin of the price. The 4C has a manual steering system with sport suspension which makes the car feel as if you are driving a go cart. The power to the wheels is amazing, taking in the low 4 second range to hit 60 mph. The interior is minimalist and sleek with a beautiful display of carbon fiber.

Alfa Romeo 4C Considerations

For other consideration, the 4C does have a limited amount of space. The trunk is a decent size for a sports car but there is no way you will fit a set of golf clubs in the trunk. The golf clubs may fit in the passenger seat but that simply risks damaging the interior due to the carbon and leather. As per other items, the 4C trunk does have enough space to store at least (2) 24-pack cases of water bottles. They actually fit quite decently as I expected else wise. Fitting a backpack or a rounded, small luggage bag shouldn’t be a problem.

The other consideration to be taken is that the vehicle can only seat two people at a time. You may think you could squeeze somebody into the trunk but remember that is highly dangerous and illegal. It is also not recommended.

The Alfa Romeo 4C can be a Practical Daily Driver

Otherwise, the Alfa Romeo 4C can work as a daily driver with the right conditions. If roads are manageable and in decent shape, comfort shouldn’t be a problem on a shorter ride. The interior is small and minimalist, so comfort is another consideration to keep in mind. Lastly, it would be best to make sure you won’t have trouble transporting bags or items within the car. Overall, the Alfa Romeo 4C would be a very fun daily driver if you can work with its offerings.

Alfa Romeo 4C

The 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C is a true Italian sports car with a rumbling 1.7-liter 4-cylinder engine pushing 237 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque. The sleek styling of the car leaves a lasting impression. Inside, carbon fiber is displayed beautifully on the floor sidings as well as behind the seats. The carbon fiber is complemented by the red stitched black leather located on the dashboard and sport seats. The rear-view window allows the driver and passenger to see into the engine bay at any time. On the outside, the large wheels provide the car with a sporty, mean look. The manual steering allows the driver to feel the bumps and curves of the road at all moments. Lastly, although it has a 4-cylinder engine, the car aggressively purrs down the road. In the event of rain, the 4C has an all-weather mode meant to ensure traction in poor conditions.

Great Acceleration!

At first, the 4C can be intimidating to drive due to the low suspension and manual steering. But, once you hop into the vehicle, you are in for a true surprise. As you cruise the roads, whether the farm land of Lancaster, PA or the backroads to Atlantic City’s casinos, you will experience the true meaning of a down to earth sports car. The acceleration is phenomenal reaching 60 mph from dead stop in only 4.2 seconds, or 4.1 seconds with a rollout start. In the 4C, you can complete a quarter mile in 12.7 seconds at 106.4 mph. The 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C is as fast as a 2014 Chevrolet Corvette from 0-60. It may not be able to keep up with the V8 on the quarter mile but at 0.5 seconds less and 9.9 mph difference, it is not too far off.
