hi I'm Doug and I'd like to introduce you to my friend the Alfa Romeo 4c now there are a million videos online about tracking the 4c and turning the 4c and breaking with the 4c and handling the 4c so I thought I'd give you something a little different can you daily drive the four see my friend Cyrus at Broadway supercars an exotic rental car firm gave me this one to try out so let's find out the Alfa Romeo 4c

television remote rearview mirror not really cabin storage is minimal there's no storage pocket on the doors and there's no storage in the center console admittedly there is this little storage pocket next to the seat that's big enough for an iPhone 6 but not big enough for an iPhone 6 plus there's also this box which is the largest storage area inside the cabin and where you'll put most of your in cabin storage belongings license and registration

check the box phone charger check the box sweatshirt check the box random stick check the box basically if you're driving a 4c you better not want to carry anything outrageous with you like a magazine I'm just kidding open up the back and you'll find an engine but if you squint you'll also find a trunk it has 3.7 cubic feet of

cargo space by comparison the Cayman has 15 cubic feet that boat and then there's visibility which is an important quality for a daily driver the Alfa is great from the front pretty good from the sides and in back that blind spot could hide a regional airport this is kind of a problem when it's time to parallel park as I shall now demonstrate when we go where am I doc no prob and then there are the quirks for

example there's no exterior trunk release so you walk up to the car with your bag and you try to put it in the trunk except you can't put it in the truck you have to unlock the doors open the door go for the interior trunk release release the trunk close the door walked around back and then you can get into the trunk Oh No you've forgotten your sunglasses in the trunk so you go to open it again except you can't you have to go back to the front of the car re unlock the doors re unlatch the trunk re walk around to the

back and reopen it to get out your sunglasses and there's no gas cap instead you open the fuel door to reveal this little rubber and then there's music the Alfa comes standard with this aftermarket CD player with no USB or auxilary port but never fear they do exist they dangle from a wire on the passenger side that's connected with Alfa Romeo tape and then there's the

hood despite a panel gap that goes across the entire front end of the car it doesn't actually open I'm serious and then there's the gear selector you know P R and D well this car has AM r n and one I I don't even well for one thing it's a little cramped this is me this is my friend Matt and these are our knees but if you can fit

the road is where the 4c shines it's quick it darts around it's eager to accelerate in turn and steer it's fun to drive and fun to listen to and the transmission while not a desired manual is surprisingly good for a car like this of course I'm talking about the open road get down to lower speeds and oh my god the steering oh what's it say oh I swear it'd be easier to get out and physically turn each wheel so here's the
