The new 2017 FIAT 124 Spider is returning after 50 years since its original introduction. This marks one of many new roadsters FIAT is bringing to the US, delivering an iconic Italian style and sporty design.
According to FIAT, the FIAT 124 Spider design is sleek and sporty, with a low-slung presence, a sporty cabin-to-hood ratio, a hexagonal grille, horizontal rear lamps, and aerodynamic contours. The interior comes with premium soft-touch materials, ergonomic seating, and sharp exterior and interior color options.
“There’s no better way to celebrate 50 years of the FIAT 124 Spider than to bring back this iconic roadster, pairing its Italian styling of the past with all of the modern performance and technology of today,” said Olivier François, Head of FIAT Brand, FCA – Global. “The 124 Spider expands the FIAT family, bringing to market yet another head-turning, fun-to-drive vehicle for our customers.”
Under the hood drivers will find a 1.4-liter MultiAir Turbo engine with rear-wheel drive. Delivering up to 160 horsepower, this model is quick thanks to its small lightweight design. A double-wishbone front suspension and multi-link rear suspension optimize stability and handling.
