Whether you choose the elegant Lusso or the inimitable Italian performance of the sporty Classica, the 2017 Fiat 124 Spider will lure discerning motorists into its clutches with seductively stylish design before captivating with breathtaking handling and horsepower.
The Fiat 124 Spider Classica represents nothing short of Fiat’s heartstopping peak of superior performance, headlined by the 160 horsepower and 184 foot-pounds of torque unleashed by its six-speed manual transmission and 1.4L MultiAir Turbo engine. To tame that much power, Fiat combined an electric power steering system, locking differential and stability control with independent front and rear suspension and traction control for a ride as sure-footed as it is speedy. To ensure supreme responsiveness, the handling is finished with four-wheel disc antilock brakes equipped with electronic brake force distribution and engine brake assist.
For a more refined package still easily on par with the Classica’s sexy performance, the Lusso sports an automatic six-speed transmission that leads premium silver-painted 17″ aluminum wheels wearing 205/45R17 performance tires. For optimal visibility, this rendition of the 124 Spider also offers automatic headlamps, rain-sensing automatic wipers, and fog lamps. Stainless steel sill scuff plates and dual chrome-finish exhaust tips punctuate the exterior finery before triggering the keyless Enter ‘n Go system and exploring what waits inside. Fiat Connect 7.0 manages an entertainment ensemble comprised of a 7″ full-color touchscreen display linked to an AM/FM radio and six speakers with an SD card reader and independent multimedia control knob. Just to put a little more information at an instant glance, this luxurious take on the coupe offers a full-color personalized digital driver information readout.
Convenience, thy name is Fiat.
