Loading Comparison...


The Fiat 124 Spider was reborn as a 2017 model, from the sweet little 1966-1986 roadster of the same name. However, this time around it’s more Japanese than Italian, as a partnership between Fiat and Mazda brought the light and rigid chassis from the MX-5 Miata to the sheetmetal and suspension by Fiat. It’s a win-win-win deal: Mazda, Fiat, and buyers of the two-seat 124. Just don’t call it a Fiata.

The turbocharged 1.4-liter engine is Fiat’s, from the inventory of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, the first time it’s been used in a rear-wheel-drive platform. It makes 160 horsepower (164 in the Abarth version) and 184 pound-feet of torque. It comes with a six-speed automatic, which falls short of the spirit of the car, or the same six-speed manual that the MX-5 uses, which is far more fun than the automatic: The manual brings crisp shifts and a sweet clutch.

A sporty Abarth model features a sports suspension and other performance enhancements.

Because the 124 Spider was new for 2017, there aren’t any significant changes for 2018. Options for the Fiat 124 Lusso and Abarth models are more flexible. There’s a new Red Top Edition, and there are three new colors: Puro Blanco Perla (pure white pearl), Grigio Chiaro (silver metallic) and Blu Scuro (dark blue metallic).


The Fiat 124 Spider convertible comes as Classica ($24,995), Lusso ($27,595); and high-performance Abarth ($28,295). Also the Lusso Red Top ($27,595).

Lusso gets handsome leather seats, but it only comes with the automatic. The Abarth adds Bilstein shock absorbers, limited-slip differential, a sport mode that alters the engine dynamics, and special trim.

There are MoPar chassis enhancements available, along with a tuned exhaust system and turbo bypass air valve.


The 124 Spider and MX-5 have the same 90.9-inch wheelbase, but the Fiat is 5.5 inches longer and a small bit wider. It only resembles the MX-5, it doesn’t really look like it. The Fiat has a longer hood with a retro rectangular grille and scooped headlamps, features that make it resemble the original 124. There are strong character lines on the side panels, a higher rear deck over a slightly bigger trunk, and contemporary alloy wheels.

The convertible top is by Mazda, easy to operate with one hand, and easily secured with a single windshield header latch; it’s perfectly simple. The fabric is heavier than that in the MX-5, to provide more sound insulation. There is no hard-top as there is with the MX-5, but the twin rollbar hoops are taken from the MX-5.

The Classica trim is black and body-colored; Lusso trim is silver; and Abarth is gunmetal, often with a black hood.


Only a few interior bits are shared with the MX-5; the Fiat’s soft-touch materials are better, and its cabins is more refined. There’s a Fiat instrument package, Fiat door panels, Fiat cloth upholstery in the Classica, and elegantly stitched Italian leather in the other two models.

Naturally there’s the availability of navigation and connectivity, with readouts on the small screen rising from the dash, like the MX-5.

The interior is snug like the MX-5, especially the passenger side; the Spider’s extra length is all in the overhangs. Six-footers will be challenged.

With the top down, the cockpit is fairly free of turbulence; caps stay on, without having to be turned backwards. Conversation is possible, with raised voices, but still possible. With the top up, the interior is quiet at freeway speeds. Fiat put extra effort into noise suppression.

Driving Impressions

The turbocharged 1.4-liter engine uses a single overhead cam. Thanks to 22 pounds of turbo boost, it makes a strong-for-its-size 160 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. But the MX-5 is quicker, because although its engine isn’t turbocharged, it is 2.0 liters. The Fiat will do zero to sixty in 6.8 seconds, while the MX-5 will do it in just 6.0 seconds. The Fiat’s weakness at the low end is felt more with the automatic transmission, which is otherwise responsive; using the shift paddles helps, but they’re not available on the base Classica.

The Fiat feels better out on the highway, where it brings a better mid-range passing response, especially with the manual gearbox.

The Spider brings some sports car traits than not all sports cars deliver: flat cornering, cat-like reflexes, eager responses, quick steering with sharp accuracy, extension of the driver’s will.

It’s about 100 pounds heavier than the MX-5, but the Fiat is still a very lightweight 2436 pounds, so it changes directions quickly, although not without body lean. But it’s still precise, and always predictable.

The ride in the Classica and Lusso is surprisingly supple, even soft, in not quite like a family sedan, but close.

The Abarth is in no way soft, and far less supple. In fact, some might say it’s stiff, as well as loud. Some also would say that’s what makes it so much fun. It’s quicker to turn in, and more responsive, taking full advantage of its Bilstein shocks and strut tower brace.

We got to drive an Abarth on an autocross course in a big parking lot, where its handling was impressive, but the super-aggressive laps didn’t offer much sense of what it would be like to drive around town every day.

We got more seat time in the Lusso, and it’s pleasant enough, but the 6-speed automatic leaves something to be desired. Shifting is smooth but leisurely, and the manual function, achieved by moving the shift lever fore and aft, doesn’t seem to quicken the shifts.

The 6-speed manual is far more satisfying, with crisp engagements and a sweet clutch.

The 1.4-liter engine’s 184 pound-feet of torque give it respectable thrust, thanks also to boost from the turbocharger. But it doesn’t rev as freely as the MX-5’s naturally aspirated 1.5-liter engine. We guess that it’ll do zero to sixty in about 6 seconds, same as the MX-5.


The Fiat 124 Spider brings Italian styling and it’s more comfortable than the Miata. Its a turbocharged engine is good and quick, but it’s not as satisfying as the higher-revving normally aspirated engine in the MX-5. Go for the crisp 6-speed manual with a user-friendly clutch, rather than the slow-shifting 6-speed automatic, which means a Classica, unless you want the hard-edged sportiness of an Abarth.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
