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

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

The Alfa Romeo 4C is a , 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, 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.
