2016 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider Review

from the expert editorial team

What Is the 2016 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider?

The 2016 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider is a two-door convertible that comes in just a Base trim level. The 4C Spider competes with other sporty roadsters like the Porsche Boxster and Chevrolet Corvette. Alfa Romeo also makes a 4C Coupe, which is covered separately on

What's New on the 2016 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider?

The 2016 adds a standard Alpine premium stereo with premium speakers, an uplevel alarm system and a locking console. Alfa Romeo has also added an available electronically controlled dual-mode exhaust system and leather styling options to the 2016 Spider.

How Does the 2016 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider Compare to Other Two-Seat Convertibles?

The 2016 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider doesn't reach the same heights of power as competitors like the Porsche Boxster or Chevrolet Corvette. However, the 4C Spider compensates for the performance gap with nimble handling, impeccable style, a lightweight frame and the appeal of exclusivity.

What Features in the 2016 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider Are Most Important?

The 4C Spider comes standard with manual rack-and-pinion steering and Brembo-brand brakes. Its 237-horsepower, turbocharged 1.7-liter four-cylinder engine teams up with a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive. The 4C Spider features carbon fiber and aluminum construction, plus a dual exhaust system. Drivers can use remote keyless entry to get into the cabin of the 4C Spider, which comes standard with air conditioning and a flat-bottom, leather-wrapped steering wheel.

Rear parking sensors and cruise control are available. Drivers can also opt for the Track Package, which includes a racing-oriented suspension.

As is required in every new vehicle, the 2016 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider comes with front airbags, antilock brakes and an electronic stability system.

Should I Buy the 2016 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider?

Sports car enthusiasts will appreciate the styling, steering and handling of the 4C Spider, as well as its powerful four-cylinder engine. Those who want more space in the cockpit and/or for cargo will likely be turned off by the tight interior. Although this rarely seen sports convertible gets points for exclusivity and design, its cabin noise is off-putting, and its manual steering can be difficult to muscle through.'s Editorial department is your source for automotive news and reviews.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
