    i love my bright red alfa stelvio ti soort family transport...been a year since i picked it up for my better half...she is happy and quite honestly each week on our sunday brunch, movie and dinner dates i too enjoy driving this passion italian sport cuv.

    the alfa 4 c is ending prodiction of tje coupe this year...plenty of very low mileage examples in dealers to take for a test drive.

    ill try and get to a local alfa dealer for a test drive.

    im sire its fun ...although at 74 grand msrp with its 1.7 liter turbo four even at 2400 lbs....i believe at least a two liter turbo four would have been a smarter play for 70 odd grand..l

    really how much heavier could the 2 liter turbo four with nearly 300 hp been?

    the video was fun to watch if difficult to hear ...enjoy should you decide to have a few laughs...

    that view of the road could give insight to what the c8 might be like to drive though...

    I actually did test drive one of these last year in anticipation/preparation of the C8 coming out. The car is a ton of fun, but looses all of its pull at 80. The ride is rough and the interior is cramped for my 6 foot frame. That said the car was very fun and left a big impression.

        That's a good way to describe it. I tested the coupe and the spider with the open top being my preference. The car felt special, like a little baby Ferrari.

          Car and Driver wrote of one recent Alfa that the only option missing was a riding mechanic, because it broke down so often you need one with you.

            I purchased a 4C coupe a few years back, it was nicely optioned with center sports exhaust. Sold her very quickly as my problem I am 5,11 and I felt the car was very cramped, after a 40 minute drive. I tell my friends try to take a long test drive before buying one. The Radio was horrible and some of the interior plastic parts felt very cheap. The Carbon tub was very cool and if I could get another one in the 35k plus range with low miles I would have it as a toy. Other than that its way to small and the seat back is not comfortable. It's fun especially when driving under 80 MPH. The paint is nice looking but it chips very easy so get a clear bra asap.

              The interior accomodations and durability of the stelvio is good...

              the 4c as mentioned is questionable...


              still the test drive of tje 4 c might be fun and good insight into the rear mid engine world...(alfa is cancelling tje 4c coupe after the 2019 model year....especially since nobody is buying them.

              Btw car and drivers long term test driver that got literally the worst rating ever believe it or not was the c7 corvette...

              i think they blew the engine up ...go figure right?
