The 4C ditches traditional instruments for a digital display that’s both clear and easy on the eye. The height of the driver’s seat is set for you when you collect the car from the dealer, though; it can’t then be adjusted unless you reach for your spanners, which is far from ideal if you and your partner are different heights. Rear visibility is awful, too.
Alfa Romeo 4C space & practicality
Getting into the 4C requires a fair bit of flexibility, because there’s a wide sill to climb over and the seats are mounted close to the floor. Then once inside, it's also too easy for your passenger to bang their knee on the centre console. The boot is suitable only for soft bags, and you have to prop it open because Alfa Romeo ruled out a hydraulic strut on the grounds of saving weight.
Alfa Romeo 4C equipment
The list of standard equipment includes launch control, sports seats, aluminium pedals, electric windows and a radio, while air-conditioning, web applications and Bluetooth phone connection are no-cost options. Given the awful rear visibility, it’s disappointing that you have to pay extra for reversing sensors, though.
