2017 Mazda MX-5 vs Fiat 125 Spider: The Same, But Not Really [Video]

By  | 

The 2017 Mazda MX-5 and the Fiat 125 Spider are going up against each other and they share the same rear-wheel drive platform along with other components, so while they are the same in many respects, they are not really the same.

Both the 2017 Mazda MX-5 and the Fiat 125 Spider each have their own offerings. If you look at the two when at the side of each other you can see that the Fiat is slightly longer and the back and front is designed a bit differently. Inside the two vehicles is where they look to be almost the same. What does set them truly apart is underneath the hood.

Both the 2017 Mazda MX-5 and the Fiat 125 Spider are fun vehicles to drive and they come with price tags that are relatively affordable. Out of the two the MX-5 offers more zing thanks to the 1.5 litre four cylinder with 129 horses. But this doesn’t mean that the 125 Spider and its 1.4 litre turbocharged engine is slow, as it offers 138 horses.

If you are considering the 2017 Mazda MX-5 and the Fiat 125 Spider you really cannot go wrong with either and it’s going to come down to personal preference.
