Expert Rating

Summary


The Alpine A110 is a small sports car from the re-born brand owned by Renault. It was unveiled in early 2017 and went on sale in the UK in early 2018.

The design of the A110 deliberately harks back to Alpine’s famous 1960s car of the same name. It was initially launched with only one specification of engine and gearbox, although an upgraded A110S model went on sale later in 2019 with an extra 40hp and a weight reduction of a few kilos.

The Alpine A110 has received consistently positive reviews from the UK motoring media, and has won several awards. It has been unanimously praised for its driving dynamics, with only mild criticisms concerning its obvious lack of practicality and questionable quality of some interior fixtures.

As of August 2021, the A110 holds an Expert Rating of 90%, which is an outstanding score and one of the highest in our index of nearly 300 new cars.

Safety rating


No safety rating

The Alpine A110 has not been crash tested by Euro NCAP and given its tiny sales volumes, it’s not likely to be. If it does, we’ll include the results here.

Eco rating


No eco rating

The Alpine A110 has not been lab tested by Green NCAP. This is a new initiative, launched in 2018 as a sister organisation to Euro NCAP. As yet, very few new cars have been tested for environmental impact by Green NCAP, and inevitably the testing programme was halted in early 2020 by the coronavirus pandemic.

If the A110 is put through the Green NCAP lab testing programme, we will publish the results here.

Directly comparing sports cars is often difficult, as they are far more personal and emotive than conventional commutermobiles. Of the above cars, most are quite different in how they drive and how they are priced so direct, like-for-like, comparisons can be quite difficult.
