2020 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2020 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider?

Taking cues from its celebrated track heritage, Alfa Romeo’s 4C is Italian designer wear in the sports-car class. This ultralight two-door weighs less than 2,500 pounds and is available in convertible (Spider) form with minimalist interior furnishings. It’s powered by a 237-horsepower, turbocharged 1.7-liter four-cylinder engine that works with a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The 4C competes with the likes of the Jaguar F-Type and Porsche 718.

What’s New on the 2020 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider?

A new 4C Spider Italia joins the lineup for 2020.  Limited to just 15 copies, the Italia features exclusive Misano Blue Metallic paint, a piano-black air intake and rear diffuser, special badges and an aluminum dashboard insert.

What Features in the 2020 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider Are Most Important?

Extensive use of carbon fiber and aluminum make the 4C a bantamweight by today’s standards, and the tiny 1.7-liter engine belts out an impressive 237 hp. That makes for a zero-to-60-mph time of 4.1 seconds and a top speed of 160 mph, Alfa says. But it’s more important to understand what features the 4C doesn’t have: power steering, a cushy (or quiet) interior, up-to-date connectivity for your devices and luggage space for two. Likewise, the Spider’s effort-intensive removable soft-top has the effect of a Targa-style removable roof rather than a full, open-air convertible.

Should I Buy the 2020 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider?

This is a bare-knuckles sports car for someone who likes living on the edge and couldn’t care less about comfort, convenience or relaxed road trips. It’s a blast to drive when you can enjoy the impressive performance, but be prepared to give it your full attention, keeping both hands on the wheel, and be extremely forgiving about the lack of amenities you’d typically find in cars today. Also, be prepared to pay through the nose, even if it is technically more affordable than other exotic, head-turning performance cars.

Great Car

I actually own this car and it’s fantastic. It’s not my daily but great performance. I get looks and people stopping me all the time to talk about it or ask about it. It’s not the fastest but it’s fast. It’s not the best handling but handles well. It’s mid-engine, hand built. It’s made of carbon fiber and the build materials are in cars 2-3x as expensive. This is a car that I really believe its more than the spec sheets and is a sum of its parts. It’s got flaws but those create the personality that make it special. ...there is at least one other review that looks like a bot (username is jibberish and just says they don’t like it and need another car giving it 1 star dragging it down. Surprised they approved it - zero insight from it).

Most Fun I've Had In A Car

The Alfa Romeo 4C... It's a car that has respect wherever you go whether you're with a pack of Alfas or a pack of Ferraris. It blends in very well with other exotics. The power that you feel is where the enjoyment comes from and i guarantee any new owner will understand my words
