2017 Alfa Romeo 4C Release Date, News & Specs

Founded in 1910 in Milan, Italy with a focus on performance, design, and motorsport, Alfa Romeo continues to live up to its founding mantra with its new 2017 Alfa Romeo 4C. Just like its predecessors, this stunning and well-executed design language offers value for its price. For daily driving though, other similarly priced vehicles are a better choice. Its release date after much speculation and hype is set for September next year.

Although the 2017 4C gives up a lot in terms of comfort for on-road performance. Some of its strengths lie in its ability to offer high fuel economy ratings, razor-sharp handling and steering, and a brisk acceleration.

For starters, the Alfa Romeo 4C and other models with the same nameplate aren’t meant for anyone. This has been partly the reason why the automaker has suffered major setbacks in terms of sales ever since it quietly exited from the United States over two decades ago.

Hopefully, things are getting better for the Fiat owned Italian automaker. Most of the focus now lies on the 4C which is expected to make a quick turn-around of the lost glory.

The Romeo 4C built in Modena, Italy is nothing close to what we’ve seen before. It uses exotic sports cars’ manufacturing techniques such as utilization of a carbon fiber tub, and aluminum-built structures.

Things get more interesting under its hood as it comes with a rather uninspiring four-cylinder 1.7L engine rated at 250 horsepower and 260 pounds of torque. Well, this isn’t the news here. The beauty of its output lies in its curb weight which is 2,500 pounds.

So, even in today’s world of 700-hp producing sedans and coupes, the Romeo 4C is still calculative and performance-oriented despite its diminutive engine output. The suspension system offers many upgrades including but not limited to the TRW/Brembo brakes, an available Truck package (bundles a loud sport exhaust system, and aggressive suspension settings and tires), and a race tuned suspension.

In terms of competition based on the price alone includes the 2017 Porsche Cayman, the 2017 Chevrolet Corvette, and the 2017 BMW M4.

Available Trims – Alfa Romeo 4C

Just as the model before it, the new 2017 Alfa Romeo 4C will be available in only Base, and Launch Edition trim levels. The 4C Quadrifoglio Verde is reviewed separately.

Moreover, several packages will be offered including the Track package, Leather package, the Convenience package, and the Exterior Appearance package.

2017 Alfa Romeo 4C Engine Specs

Under the hood of the 2017 Alfa Romeo 4C is a four-cylinder 1.7L engine good for 237 horsepower and 258 lbs. ft. of torque. The automated clutch manual transmission routes all this power to the aft wheels.

Simulated drive tests conducted reveal the 4C only requires 4.2 seconds for an acceleration of 0-60 mph. This time compares similarly to that achieved by the 2016 Chevy Corvette, and quicker than that of the BMW M4 and the Porsche Cayman. It is estimated that the 4C will achieve 24/34/28 mpg in the city/highway/combined.

Spider Price Estimate & Date Of release – 2017 Alfa Romeo 4C

We should expect the new Alfa Romeo 4C for 2017 to be released in September next year if all goes according to Alfa Romeo’s way. As for the price, the 4C Convertible will go for sale for a base price MSRP of $63,900, and $53,900 for the 4C Coupe.

2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia – Release Date, News and Rumors

2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia is ready! The next entry into the modern world of automotive vehicles is actually a familiar face with a new style. We are of course talking about tithe latest Alfa Romeo Giulia which is being released as a 2017 year model. The model has been on a hiatus for some time now and was facing extinction. The problems occurring in the recent governmental body of Italy were not enough for the push of the new model to be made. The automotive industry in Italy, partially the Alfa Romeo brand, has been hit by low popularity mainly due to the less interest coming from the Chinese market which is in turn caused by their own economic issues. But as the issues have been resolved and the Chinese market has once again started growing and has been in need of Alfa Romeo vehicles, the only sane thing to do was to bring back and actually reintroduce one of its most famous brands and already set a release date for the Alfa Romeo Giulia.

The comeback of Giulia marks tithe comeback of the brand and is only the second car in the last six years which is being released under this brand, with the last one of course being the Giulietta model. The plan is actually to enhance the sales from the 74,000 units made and sold in 2013 to more than 400,000 ones by the end of 2018. Will this be possible? Well according to the latest news the Italians my just manage to pull this thing off.

The Giulia is a name which has been created and was very much known during its stint in the 60s and 70s, which is the time the car managed to make its name. The beauty, style performance and the ability of the car were the main things that made it popular and what made it a standout in the automotive industry. It rivaled the BMW 3-Sereis and was made in order to reminiscent the current Jaguar, BMW and even Maserati vehicles. The 2017 model is going to come at a time when the segment is occupied by such vehicles as Jaguar XE, Mercedes-Benz C-Class and the current and the notorious BMW 3-Series. The battle may be hard but certainly a battle that may be won and Giulia is not known as being able to back down from a fight.
This is what the latest model brings to us.

Design of 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia

The main selling point of each Alfa Romeo Giulia 2017 before this one was its style and handsome demeanor. This is of course going to continue with the latest model as they plan to make it one of the main features and selling points. Compared to the competitors which usually adopt a more clean look than taking risks, the Giulia is going to be very ambitious looking. With some new rounder and muscular design cues and shapes it promises to deliver on its premise of being the most handsomest car in the segment. It will still manage to retain some of the Alfa’s trademark features which have to be integrated into the design but which have been done in good taste as well. This of course include the triangular grille design which has some straight edges that lead from it towards the headlights and taillights. The standard model is also going to be graced with some big air intakes to its front, flared wheel arches, a black skid plate in the back and two added exhaust tips sticking from the rear. The model is also going to offer us a much more powerful Quadrifoglio trim, which is going to differ compared to the base version. It adds a large front splitter, added vents in the bonnet area, a smaller lip spoiler, bigger wheel options for better stability on the road and a rear diffuser which has the exhaust exits placed there.

A car like the 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia is not going to go unnoticed if it does not pack in a great interior. Well in order to make things even more interesting, the added package only expands the range this model is able to offer. We are talking about an interior which adds a half-leather interior which is standard for the model while the full leather, power-heated front seats, gear-shift paddles and a heated steering wheel come available as optional. The Quadrifoglio goes even further as it offers a mixture of leather and Alcantara and adds some fiber trim details so it makes the inside even better than the standard trim. And if there is a possibility that the car is going to get even more exclusive, there is the option of including carbon fiber bucket seats made by Sparco but of an added price of £3,000.

Tech
