Alpine has just updated its universally loved A110 sports car, and the product range now includes three different A110s; the A110, A110 GT, and A110 S. It’s a much clearer product range than before.

According to Alpine, all three versions are “intensely Alpine,” each having its own distinctive character while offering the same pure driving pleasure. They all come with a familiar yet capable 1.8-L turbo in-line 4 engine and a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission set up.

The base A110 is probably the choice that offers the purest driving experience out of the three. The simplest A110 boasts a very light kerb weight of 2,429 lbs / 1,102 kg (unladen) and an impressive weight balance (44% at the front and 56% at the rear). The base A110 might be down on power (248 hp) compared to the other trims, but it is still capable enough to tackle any road you throw at it. The subtle looks and smaller wheels (17″) should make this car a great daily. The base model starts at a modest €59,500, making it much cheaper than the others.

The A110 GT sits nicely in the middle of the range, offering a good balance between comfort and performance. While the engine produces the same power (296 hp / 221 kW) and launches the car from 0-62 mph / 0-100 kph in the same amount of time (4.2 seconds) as the S model, the GT model offers more comfort with its chassis tuned with long-distance driving in mind. The GT model also comes with luxuries like park assist and adjustable leather comfort seats. The GT model starts at €69,500.

The first A110 with a rear wing (and also the first Alpine to wear a factory two-tone paint scheme), the S is the sportiest variant of the A110 range. The car’s sport-tuned chassis and large Brembo brakes allow the driver to unleash the full potential of the 296 hp turbo I4 engine. Other upgrades like optional Michelin PS Cup 2 semi-slick tires and model-specific aerodynamic parts (generate up to 311 lbs / 141 kg of extra downforce) basically glue the car to the road even at its top speed of 171 mph / 275 kph (with the limiter off). On the inside, a microfibre-covered interior is accompanied by Sabelt sports seats (racing seats are also available). The A110 S starts at €71,500. Not much of a bargain.

All A110 models benefit from sharper engine calibration, and they all come with three independent drive modes; Normal, Sport, and Track. Thanks to the smarter ESC calibration along with engine response, steering sensitivity, exhaust activation, and so on (each trim gets a model-specific system), Alpine says the three different cars deliver very different driving experiences. Alpine even made the car sound better when initiating the launch control by temporarily disabling a cylinder, resulting in more racy sounds.

All models are also getting a new Alpine multimedia system that is controlled by a 7″ touchscreen. Alpine promises this system is cutting edge, compatible with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and even Over The Air remote updates (This is great news for many because most owners complained about the pre-facelift car’s terrible infotainment system). The onboard navigation system now provides traffic updates in real-time (apparently, it can even show real-time gas prices in nearby gas stations now) and a Focal premium audio system is available as well. The new multimedia system also has telemetrics functions (standard on the A110 S) that display crucial info like transmission temp, steering wheel angle, track chronograph, etc. 

It sounds like one of the best-handling sports cars of our generation, just got much better. You can start ordering the new Alpine A110s now. What do you guys think of the refreshed A110 models? If you have been sitting on the fence, would you get one now?
