Customers usually get confused when buying the 4C as it comes in two versions: The Alfa Romeo 4C Coupe and the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider. In this article, we will discuss both versions in detail to help you make the right choice.

Different Roof Design

If you enjoy fresh air and the scenery around you while driving, then the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider should be your pick. It features a premium black colored soft top which can be easily removed and stored in the trunk. For better aerodynamics, you can opt for the 4C Coupe which extends a hardtop design. Moreover, you can also choose the carbon-fiber roof option when buying the Coupe version for better performance and enhanced design.

Same Powertrain

Both the Alfa Romeo 4C Coupe and 4C Spider are powered by the same engine which is the 1.7-liter all-aluminum direct injection turbocharged unit capable of developing 237 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft of torque. This powertrain allows the 4C Coupe and Spider to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.1 seconds with a top speed of 258 mph. Moreover, the versions boast a 4-mode Alfa DNA Pro Drive Mode selector as well as the 6-speed automatic twin-clutch transmission system.

Cloth Bucket and Leather Sports Seats

While the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider and the 4C Coupe feature an identical interior, they are available with two different seating options. The 4C Spider renders sport bucket seats to give you a feel of driving a true sports car while the 4C Coupe features lightweight cloth bucket seats to keep the overall weight of the interior low for maximum aerodynamic efficiency.

Similar Interior Features

On the inside, both the 4C Coupe and 4C Spider offer some excellent standard features such as the Alpine audio system with USB support, Bluetooth connectivity, satellite radio and 7-inch HD infotainment display. The standard driver assistance features include a rear-view camera, rear parking sensors, cruise control and more. Buyers can also opt for the premium Alpine surround system with subwoofers.

Distinct Dashboard Material

The Alfa Romeo Spider (and a few coupe trims) incorporates a leather-covered front dash and the door panels with matching seats. While the 4C Coupe offers a thermoformed dashboard with basic door panels. Nevertheless, the interior of both the versions gives the feeling of driving a luxury vehicle.
