When is Dacia releasing its corresponding cheaper model? They have the Dacia interior already. Otherwise what beautiful color. Clio red would also suite that car

50 grand and that interior?? .....hmmmmmm. Let me put it like this... Those volume controls are from a megane 1 clasic even earlier. and they have been seen on all megans even on the Dacias. So.... a 50 grand car with those cheap components? and those cheap plastics. No thanks... at 50 grand ill spend else where even considering how fun the car is. Those wont hold over time.

First time i would talk about a review of carwow not in a good way, let me explain why: First of all it's actually carbon fiber , period. Sure it's not top notch how it fit in the car but it is what it is: carbon fiber, not plastic. Second: the speakers was made specially by Focal for the A110, the sound system was develloped for 5 years, kind of sad to just reduce it by: not much quality. Third and the most important: This car is all about having less weight and still having a good experience (still have a good audio system, still have clim) not so extreme like the mighty 4C. So yes, it have compromise in materials BUT it's clear as daylight that if you want top material+spé on a car , just buy a 100k £ Cayman S with all options. Hope my mess of a message have a little explain why i'm not ok with the review. (if you read all of this, have a nice day)

I have the same stereo controls and climate control on my 9400€ Dacia Logan #proud 🤣. Jokes aside, that car is simply beautiful. At first, i didn't like the design, but its is growing on me very fast.

There are plenty of other options in the same category that have little to no "forgiveness of faults" required. However, the quirkiness and distinctive exterior styling will certainly move a few units. It sort of reminds me of a 90's Toyota, if you squint. (I'd love to see a Lancia Rally inspired car for the road)

Is it pronounced "Alpeen" or Al-pine? All the Car Journalists say it differently - PS be cool to see it in a better colour like black.

Same price as a TT-RS in the UK??? Wow... Here a TT-RS is about 30K more expensive than this Alpine! and a 718 Cayman in similar spec costs about 20K more than the Alpine.. It's actually relatively cheap here!

I love your videos quite a lot. But that "cheap plastic" vs "expensive plastic" is ridiculous. It's the same plastic, where one are painted with "rubbery" paint which will peel off in few years. I used to be editor of car-show on comercial TV back in 1998 (in Slovenia). Than the reviewer praised "high quality" plastic on new AUDI cars. The rest is history; the cheapest possible white ABS plastic revealed soon under plasti-dip like paint that car industry uses for 20 years now. When ever I hear "quality plastic, I get measles, since in few years that will become sticky, peeling off crap, that will deminish any resale value of the car it had. In my car I had fortune that it was black plastic under black paint at least I could rub it off all and it was just shiny "cheap" plastic that looked way better than before.

An engine start button SHOULD be orange, not red. If a button serves an dual function (in this case start OR stop) it should not be colour coded to either of those functions if it can't be to both. Now, green is generally held to mean go, and red to mean stop. What comes 'in between'? yes, amber ... AKA orange. You're welcome.

Oh God..its a good thing you are safe..because this car did burn down...Completely....when Chris Harris was doing a review about it on...Top Gear...early this year,due to an electrical/circuit failure...and if it weren't for his fast escape,we would be talking about something different...but it does look good.

Disappointing?? I own an Alfa Romeo 4C and it makes me smile every single day. It's a much better car than the Porsche 718 Cayman, which I also have driven, and I had to try hard not to fall asleep driving it.

1100kg+ is not lightweight. Alfa 4c is 895kg. Nobody who wants this Alpine would buy a TT either. The sort of person who wants a TT, thinks they are making a style statement and isn’t an enthusiast (blanket statement but mostly true).

I really like this car! You can tell they made it for petrolheads. Okay the interior quality is disappointing and the storage is crap but I don't think I would care about that when I'm smiling like an idiot while having fun driving the car.

Since it's made by Renault maybe Nissan can use the chassis to make the next 240SX/Silvia or maybe some new sports car that's supposed to rival the BRZ.

You have to think just how much this car could have cost, if Alpine had made the interior better? I've brought electrical items that have had better packaging than the interior of this car. Such a shame as the car looks pretty nice (From the outside!).
