2017 FIAT 124 Spider

The All New Charming Roadster

With the looks of Pininfarina-designed original, circa 1966, the FIAT 124 spider is not only extravagantly stylish but also excels in performance when compared to other cars in its own league.

Its nearest rival in this category, Mazda’s MX-5 Miata is also its most important donor. It has donated its chassis, parts bin as well as assembly line. However, 124 Spider boasts of its own unparalleled suspension, unique powertrain and comes with a powerful 1.4 liter turbo engine capable of generating a power of 160 hp. This two seater convertible is available in both six-speed manual and automatic transmissions.

Built using advanced technology that is easy to use, 124 Spider has a 50/50 weight distribution along with a four wheel independent suspension; start with a push ignition, Bluetooth along with hands free voice command system. Other advanced features include a seven inch multimedia touch screen and an efficient navigation system.

With stunning exterior Italian looks, 124 Spider never falls behind in interiors as well. The front seats look absolutely sophisticated and very much Italian. They are well-augmented, absolutely trendy, and very comfortable and have ample leg as well as hip room. Steering is precise and has well-weighed electric power assistance which is also very communicative Basic tasks like controlling volume, giving voice commands and skipping tracks can be done from the steering wheel itself.

When it goes on sale this summer, the 124 Spider will initially be offered in three trim levels – Classica serves as the entry level offering, while Lusso offers more luxury and tech content and the Abarth model caters to enthusiasts with its focus on performance. If you’re willing to play by the turbocharged rules, this little car can be a legitimate riot to bomb around in.
