Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

The entry-level Alpine A110 trim is the one to go for – this sports coupé is more about the driving experience than the fripperies. It comes with part-suede and part-leather-trimmed seats, cruise control and climate control, and can be identified by the 17in alloy wheels and grey brake calipers.

A sports exhaust, 18in wheels and upgraded brakes are available from the options list. It's not cheap, but it is priced pretty close to the entry-level Porsche Cayman and is predicted to have even better resale values.

Overview

The Alpine A110 is one of the most entertaining and rewarding sports cars you can buy – at any price. Being ultra-lightweight means that, despite its relatively small engine, performance won't disappoint, while at the same time it feels incredibly nimble. It also has some of the best predicted resale values of any car on sale. The Porsche Cayman has higher limits that mean, ultimately, it's more capable, but the A110 is at least as much fun on the road as the Cayman – or any other sports car for that matter.

  • Truly involving and entertaining handling
  • Comfortable ride for a sports car
  • Rapid performance with surprisingly good economy
  • Pretty poor luggage space
  • Terrible infotainment system
  • Not exactly cheap to buy
