Stunning two-seater

With just two seats, the 2020 Alfa Romeo 4C lets you know what type of car it is upfront: Exclusive. This isn't your buddy's family-friendly daily driver. The 4C's mid-engine 1.7L turbocharged engine offers a thrill ride thanks to its carbon-fiber body and minimal comforts. The 4C encourages you to kick modern conveniences to the curb (it doesn't even have carpet), offering you head-turning styling and a solid connection to the road as a replacement. Weekends will never be the same again.

5 reasons to buy the 2020 Alfa Romeo 4C

1. One with the road 

The 2020 4C makes no apologies for its focus on letting drivers feel the road. A lightweight carbon fiber body, stiff suspension, and no power steering give you an unparalleled connection with the road. The 4C is a driver's car with instinctive handling around corners. Other sports cars offer more creature comforts, but the 4C does away with the niceties and gets right down to the business of driving.  

2. Style in spades  

The 2020 4C is a two-seater stunner that stands out in any crowd. The 4C borrows its fashion sense from its Italian roots, merging decades of Alfa Romeo design inspirations into an eye-catching masterpiece. The distinctive flair of the 4C's carbon fiber design will turn heads and ensure you'll never overlook your car in the parking lot again.  

3. A mid-engine delight  

The 4C's turbocharged mid-engine layout gives you and your seatmate an absolute thrill. You won't break any track records in the 4C, but the 1.7L engine pumps out 237 horsepower, proving that small engines are still mighty. The 4C's performance is paired nicely with Alfa Romeo's six-speed automatic twin-clutch transmission to its rear wheels. 

4. Feel the breeze at any speed   

The 2020 Alfa Romeo 4C is only available in the Spider convertible model, giving you easy access to the sky above. Manually detach the rollable fabric roof by unlocking a few latches — easy enough for one person to do — and you'll be well on your way to cruising backroads in your open-air cockpit.  

5. Interior fit for a racecar driver 

The 2020 4C's interior is a callback to the days when sports cars were made to be driven, not ridden in. The leather-wrapped flat-bottom steering wheel with paddle shifters mounted on either side is immediately recognizable to performance car enthusiasts. To give yourself some flexibility, you can adjust the driving mode to dynamic, all-weather, natural, or race mode.
