2019 Alfa Romeo 4C Ratings & Reliability
Alfa's 4C is a superlight two-seat, midengine sports car for people who live more for the track than for their commute. Though short on creature comforts, the Alfa's high points are its style and agility. The 4C is powered by a 1.7-liter, turbo four-cylinder engine that cranks out 237 hp and uses a dual-clutch, six-speed automated manual transmission that can also be shifted manually via paddles behind the steering wheel. With its featherlike 2,500-pound weight, low center of gravity, and race carlike weight distribution, the 4C is a pure sports car that's fun to drive, with superlative handling and a thrilling exhaust note. However, the non-power assist steering requires a high effort at low speeds, visibility is challenging, and the 4C is hard to get in and out of. A Spider version is available with a removable fabric roof panel.

Alfa Romeo 4C 2018
Alfa's 4C is a super-light two-seat, mid-engine sports car for people who live more for the track than their commute. In concept it resembles the departed Lotus Elise, but with slightly more creature comforts. It weighs only about 2,500 pounds. The 4C is powered by a 1.7-liter turbo four that cranks out 237 hp and uses a dual-clutch six-speed automated manual that can be shifted manually. With its feather-like weight, low center of gravity, and race car-like weight distribution, the 4C is a pure sports car that's fun to drive, with superlative handling. However, the unassisted steering requires a high effort at low speeds, visibility is challenging, and access is arduous. A Spider version is available with a removable fabric roof panel.
