We have official confirmation that the brand new Fiat 124 Spider has made its way over to the roads in the US and is on the forecourts of dealerships nationwide. The vehicle has been based around the Mazda MX-5 Miata and it offers the finesse of the Fiat.
The engine in the Fiat 124 Spider isn’t the one from the MX-5, it is the 1.4 litre Multijet engine and this offers up 160 horses along with 184 torque. The look of the 124 Spider is modern retro, which comes with halogen headlights.
However there are some people who seemingly cannot let the Fiat 124 Spider go its own way and they have to compare it to the MX-5. The Spider may be slightly weaker and it isn’t the performance vehicle that the MX-5 is, but then it wasn’t supposed to be.
The Fiat 124 Spider does offer more than enough power to give decent performance along with a ride that is pleasurable. Of course it is a vehicle that does have flair that people will either fall in love with or hate on site, we love it and we cannot wait to get our hands on it for a drive.
