Alfa Romeo 4C Convertible (2017 - )

The Alfa Romeo 4C Spider is a very focused machine that’s about the driving experience above all else. Some will find its driving manners to be engaging in a very raw, energetic and intense way, but we fear that far more people – including us – will find it way too demanding, exhausting and, at times, downright scary. Yes, it’s immensely fast, makes a great noise and it looks very exotic, but so is/does a Porsche Boxster, which is also much more precise and satisfying to drive. The Porsche, along with some other rivals, is also nicer inside and more affordable to buy and run.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

Step – or rather, clamber – into the 4C, and you’ll find an environment befitting of a hardcore sports car. Parts of the carbon fibre chassis are left exposed – very intentionally – to give a high-tech race car feel, while stitched leather and functional, no-nonsense plastics make up the rest of what you see. It feels very appropriate to the car, but most of the materials on display, and the way in which they’re constructed, don’t feel anywhere near as lustrous as they do in other sports cars like the Porsche Boxster.

Most of the other controls are reasonably conventional – with the possible exception of the gear selector buttons – so they’re pretty easy to find and use. It’s rather unforgivable, though, that at this money, you only get an aftermarket Alpine stereo that has nowhere near the ease-of-use or depth-of-functionality you get with the fully integrated systems in most rivals. There’s a very limited amount of adjustment for your driving position, too. For instance, you can’t crank your seat up and down or adjust the angle of your backrest.
