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 January 2024, the A110 holds an Expert Rating score of C (64%), which is a mix of outstanding media reviews and poor running cost data.

The Alpine A110 has more expensive running costs than the market average, according to data exclusively provided by our commercial partner Clear Vehicle Data.

As a sports car, you won’t be surprised to read that it is thirstier than the average petrol car, but with an average fuel consumption of 41 mpg, it is slightly more economical day-to-day than rivals like the Audi TT and BMW Z4. The A110’s insurance premiums are on the more expensive side too.

We don’t currently have servicing and maintenance costs for the Alpine A110, so check back again soon.

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.
