Alpine A110

(2017 - present)

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.
