Another great-looking and unique car with impressive performance and excellent handling is on the way. We are talking about the new 2018 Alfa Romeo 4C Coupe. This luxury car is the perfect combination of Italian style, nice acceleration and it is simply fun to drive. Because of its small dimensions and agility, the Alfa Romeo 4C is an excellent choice for city everyday drive and it is easy to park.
As the 2017 year model, the Alfa Romeo has gotten some new tech features inside the cabin including new available premium sound system, redesigned wheels and a new color for exterior. For the 2018 year, we still haven’t any news about its redesign or improvements. However are almost sure that it won’t show any significant changes in its design since it already looks stunning. Perhaps we will see just small upgrades of the tech features and inside the cabin.
The main competitors of the new Alfa Romeo will be: Porsche 718 Cayman, Audi TTS, Mercedes-Benz SLC-Class, Nissan 370Z and Chevy Corvette.
2018 Alfa Romeo 4C Coupe engine and performance
When it comes to the engine of the 2018 Alfa Romeo 4C Coupe, there probably won’t be any significant changes. The upcoming Alfa Romeo will continue to use the same unit which powers the current model. It is a 1.75-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine. This unit will be capable of making 237 horsepower and the torque of 258 pound-feet. The engine comes with a six-speed automatic transmission only.
The rear-wheel drive system will be standard as before. The 4C Coupe has the maximum speed of 160 mph. With the weight of less than 2,500 pounds and aerodynamic body, it will show an excellent steering and great handling. Its acceleration is impressive too; it is able to hit 60 mph in just 4.1 seconds. Speaking of the fuel efficiency, it is rated at 24 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway.
Design of exterior and interior
First of all, the body of 2018 Alfa Romeo 4C Coupe is made mostly of lightweight materials such as carbon fiber, aluminum etc. which makes it extremely quick and nimble. Speaking of the external appearance, the new 4C will look very handsome, aerodynamic and attractive. Its body is all about the curves, subtle details, smooth lines…the unique design of the vertical headlights gives it distinctive look. On the front end, we will see the Company’s recognizable V-shaped grille and large air intakes. The rear fascia will feature classic rounded LED tail lamps.
Inside, it is a different story. Although the 2018 Alfa Romeo 4C Coupe is a two-seater and we cannot expect plenty of space inside, the comfort is not its strongest side either. The seats are a bit tight and the cabin is not so quiet too. The cargo space is limited as well. However, to take you from the point A to the point B, or for everyday ride, this car is not bad choice at all, on the contrary.
As for the equipment, it comes standard with air conditioning, USB, cloth seats, airbags, traction control system and so on.
Release date and price
As for the release date of the new 2018 Alfa Romeo 4C Coupe, we still don’t have any official data. We assume that it might be sometime during next year. The price is expected to be similar to the current model which is around $56,000.
