The 2014 Alfa Romeo 4C is two-seat sports car, the kind of driving pleasure usually in a £100,000 offer is found supercar, but at half the price. It looks the part it’s an incredibly good-looking car is. But it’s also fantastic to drive. It is made of lightweight carbon fiber, and as a result weighs just 895kg, that’s less than VW City car. It means that despite the relatively small 1.75-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine, it is still glowing fast and handles great. And it offers decent mpg and emissions, too. There are problems, the suspension tuning is fixed, so that it is unpleasant on bumpy roads, and there is no way to fit a manual transmission. Interior quality is a little also missing, but despite its shortcomings, the 2014 Alfa Romeo 4C is an incredibly accomplished sports car.
2014 Alfa Romeo 4C Interior
The suspension tuning is fixed, as already mentioned, not a bad thing for a performance-oriented sports car, but it makes it very uncomfortable. You get a jolt through the spine of every bump in the road feel, and because of its low riding posture, it is also very awkward to get in the 2014 Alfa Romeo 4C. But it is easy to find a good sitting position as the steering wheel is fully adjustable, and the seating is perfect feel deep structure for a sports car. With a small boat and cramped interior of the 2014 Alfa Romeo 4C is not built for everyday use
The 2014 Alfa Romeo 4C a weekend game thing, not a car for everyday use. The seats are set very low, and require some gymnastic ability to get into it. The boot has only 110 liters of space. And the interior is pretty tight. Rear visibility is bad, so parking sensors are a must. Also help the uncomfortable ride and loud engine noise to make the 4C unsuitable for anything other than weekend blasts a twisty roads or a winding track.
2014 Alfa Romeo 4C Engine
Currently there is only one engine and transmission on the 2014 Alfa Romeo 4C, a 237bhp 1.75-liter four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine and a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. There is plenty of power and it sounds fantastic – and even better with the optional sports exhaust. It is very fast, too. It will go from 0-62mph in just 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 160 mph – that’s as fast as a £ 80,000 plus Porsche 911 Carrera S. Alfa Romeo 4C brakes are excellent, the steering is very responsive and firm suspension provides it comes around the corner and – to ensure the car more than up to the task of achieving dealing with the incredible speed of its location. The firm suspension makes it a little uncomfortable when – you will not feel any uneven road surfaces. And while the automatic transmission is good, it is not quite as smooth as in a Porsche Cayman. What’s more, we would prefer if it. At least the option to have a manual transmission
The 2014 Alfa Romeo 4C is capable of 41.5mpg and emits just 157 g/km CO2, both are staggering figures for a sports car capable of 0-62mph in 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 160 mph. The owners are probably not the Alfa Romeo 4C careful enough to go to achieve this kind of economy figure, but it’s still probably quite economical for such a fast car to be. The low emissions figure puts them in band G for road tax, with a cost of £ 175 per year. But it will not be cheap to operate and not yet clear how well it keep its to its value.
2014 Alfa Romeo 4C Safety
Alfa Romeo has a questionable reputation for reliability, but its parent company, Fiat has been working hard to improve this area to its cars in recent years, and it seems to be paying off. The Alfa Romeo 4C engine and transmission were taken both from other models in the Alfa range and the fact that they should be proven that they have proven to be reliable. The fact that the 2014 Alfa Romeo 4C’s so easy also ensure that a minimum load placed on the components. The rugged carbon-fiber body should easily stand up to the repeated use and make the car extremely safe in the event of a crash, too.
