Have you seen the Fiat 124 Spider?

The Fiat 124 Spider is a speedy, beautiful, small, affordable, powerful, two-seat, rear-drive roadster!

The first thing you need to know is the Fiat is heavier than the flyweight MX-5 on which it’s based. Thanks to a longer front overhang and larger derrière to open up an extra 10 litres of boot space, the Fiat 124 is larger and consequently 50kg heavier than a 2.0-litre MX-5.

The 124 Spider does have a unique suspension and powertrain: a 160-hp 1.4-liter turbo four with either a six-speed manual or auto. The racy Abarth gets a sport-tuned exhaust, a limited-slip differential, and a boost to 164 hp.

Inside, the 124 Spider looks like a Miata in nicer clothing. The seats’ shape, bolstering, stitching patterns, and cloth upholstery are different. While the overall dashboard shape is the same, the upper part is covered with a soft-touch material, also used on the upper door panels. Extensive use of satin-chrome finish lends an upscale zing to all trim levels. The manual convertible top on all models has acoustic ­insulation and a nice inner liner,

Chrysler’s Uconnect infotainment system isn’t compatible with Mazda’s hardware, so the 124 uses Mazda’s user-friendly system with Fiat graphics.
