Alfa Romeo Set To Replace The 4C With A More Affordable Coupe

Rumor

This is good news is you think the 4C is a bit too exotic.

The Alfa Romeo 4C is a very cool car, but the $55,000 base price and lack of practicality might keep it out of the reach of most people. Everyone thought that Alfa Romeo would get a sports car based on the Mazda MX-5, but now a report from German magazine Auto Bild claims that a 4C replacement will hit showrooms in 2020. This two door car may get the Brera name which was last used on the FWD coupe from 2005-2010. Unlike the previous Brera, this new car would be RWD, based on the platform of the Giulia sedan.

Power will likely come from the Guilia's engines, so expect turbocharged four and six-cylinder engines with a range topping Quadrifoglio version. AWD will likely be optional and the car will mainly compete with the BMW 4 Series and Mercedes C-Class Coupe. We don't really see this as a 4C replacement, as much as a new segment for Alfa Romeo. This new car won't use an expensive carbon fiber tub like the 4C, so the cost will be much lower. Expect a price tag of around $45,000. The 4C competes with models like the Porsche Cayman and Lotus Elise, so the new Brera would a pretty big departure from those cars. We think this would be a good move for Alfa, one that makes sense for more buyers.
