Trim Levels

The 124 Spider convertible is part of Fiat's car lineup that includes the 500, 500e, 500L, and 500X.

2019 Fiat 124 Spider Classica: The base 124 trim comes standard with 16-inch wheels, a 7.0-inch touchscreen with a rotary dial, a rearview camera, push-start ignition, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob (manual transmission), silver interior accents, and a black rollbar cover.

2019 Fiat 124 Spider Lusso: The Lusso trim adds 17-inch wheels, dual chrome exhaust tips, leather-trimmed seats, heated front seats, automatic headlights, a proximity key, automatic temperature control, fog lights, SiriusXM satellite radio, piano black interior trim, and a silver rollbar cover.

2019 Fiat 124 Spider Abarth: The higher-performance Abarth model comes with unique 17-inch wheels, Bilstein performance suspension, a limited-slip differential, a front strut tower brace, a unique front fascia, matte gray interior accents, a gunmetal rollbar cover, Abarth badges, and a Sport steering wheel and instrument cluster.

Notable options on the Abarth model include Recaro Alcantara and leather-trimmed seats, Brembo performance brakes, a Record Monza exhaust system, and the Veleno Appearance package (Abarth floor mats, a bright dead pedal, a red front lower lip, red mirror caps, and a red tow hook opening cap).

Performance and Fuel Economy

The rear-drive Fiat 124 Spider is powered by a 1.4-liter turbo-four that produces 160 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque (164 hp on Abarth). A six-speed manual transmission is standard (26/35 mpg city/highway) and a six-speed automatic (25/36 mpg) is optional.

Safety

Standard safety features include a rearview camera; blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert is optional.

Utility (Cargo Space and Interior Room)

The 124 Spider can hold 4.9 cubic feet of cargo in the trunk and legroom is 43.1 inches. The Mazda Miata on which the Fiat is based can carry 4.6 cubic feet and legroom is also 43.1 inches.

Technology

The 124 Spider features a 7.0-inch touchscreen with a rotary dial and a four-speaker audio system. SiriusXM satellite radio and a nine-speaker Bose audio system are optional.

What We Think

In a Track Drive review of the 2019 Fiat 124 Spider Abarth, we loved how the extra kick from Sport mode made the 124 even more fun to drive. Equipped with the optional Record Monza exhaust, the engine sounded "majestic" at idle and like an "aggressive howl" when driven. On the autocross course, the 124 showed off its minimal body roll and the steering's responsiveness. The six-speed manual transmission has light effort, and the clutch is easy to engage. When pushing the 124 Spider Abarth, it "begs you to try harder and explore your capabilities and limits." We concluded by saying, "…it's a genuinely built sports car that succeeds in being both fun and affordable."

In a six-way performance car shootout, the 124 Spider drove away victorious. "In this group, the Fiat 124 Abarth had the least powerful engine, but it was also the king of back-road perma-grin," we said. The Fiat was able to keep up with more powerful cars on back roads because it earns the driver's trust. The Fiat's "prodigious grip, indefatigable brakes, flawless chassis balance, quick steering, and precise shifter" made us smile for days. But under normal driving, the engine can be laggy and doesn't sound that good. There is also very little headroom. "Flawed though the single-cam, port-injected Fiat engine is, it's bolted inside a chassis incredible enough that as a whole sports car, it beat some very serious competitors," we added.
