The 124 Spider is a dream sports car, combining timeless elegance with an exciting drive, and a surprisingly modest price tag.
The design of the new 124 Spider takes its inspiration from the original classic Fiat 124 Sport Spider, which was in production from 1966 to 1985. The sleek profile of the 124 Spider starts with the long, elegant bonnet, while at the rear you have the sophisticated swallow-tail wings. Body coloured inserts in the rear lights add to the stylish look. Three trim levels are available: Classico, Lusso and Lusso Plus. The Classico’s16-inch alloy wheels and steel dual exhaust pipes are upgraded to 17-inch alloys and chrome double exhausts for the Lusso and Lusso Plus. The Lusso Plus features LED lighting with adaptive technology to direct the beam into a bend for optimal visibility. Sensors on the Lusso Plus detect moisture and light levels, automatically triggering wipers when it starts to rain and lights at dusk.
The cabin is as luxurious as you would expect from a stylish sports car, with premium quality materials and finishes throughout. A leather steering wheel and gear knob are fitted on all models, with sophisticated black upholstery on the Classico and leather heated seats on the Lusso and Lusso Plus. Air conditioning keeps you comfortable whatever the weather in the Classico, while the higher trims have the added benefit of automatic climate control.
Under the 124 Spider’s sleek bonnet you have a 1.4-litre multiair petrol engine which can whisk you from 0-60mph in just over 7 seconds. The top speed is 134mph and you can get 44mpg from the Spider, with CO2 emissions of 148g/km. Maximum torque is 240Nm.
The Classico trim is fitted with a three-inch infotainment touchscreen, while the Lusso Plus upgrades to a seven-inch touchscreen display for the multimedia system. The Bose sound system has nine speakers, including four incorporated in the headrests, so you can get maximum enjoyment from your music even when you have the roof down. DAB radio, USB and Bluetooth keep you connected, while satnav functionality with 3D maps means you can always find the best route for your journey.
The 124 Spider is constructed from lightweight, high resistance aluminium and steel for enhanced safety with high impact absorption, while the rear multilink and front double wishbone suspension optimises stability. Cruise control with speed limiter helps to make driving safer and less demanding, while the tyre pressure monitoring system warns you when your tyre inflation needs adjusting for safety and enhanced fuel efficiency.
