Overview of the Fiat 124 Spider

Learn about the Fiat 124 Spider

Summary

Produced by the Fiat brand, the Fiat 124 Spider is sporty and fun to drive. Standard safety features include a rearview camera. Though the interior is on the smaller side compared to competitors, the cabin is well-designed. Some tech highlights are the optional Bose sound system and navigation system. Because this is a small convertible, the cargo space is limited, but the two front seats are comfortable for day and weekend trips. The Fiat 124 Spider Abarth is a sportier version that is at home on the road and the track. All models have sharp steering, handling and braking.

Safety

The Fiat 124 Spider is a safe car. Though it was not tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the 2019 Fiat 124 Spider has standard safety features like four-wheel ABS, stability control and emergency braking assistance.



You might want to consider additional options such as:

 

  • Blind-spot monitoring
  • Rear-cross traffic alert
  • Rear parking sensors




The Fiat 124 Spider has dual front side-mounted airbags, front airbags and occupant sensing deactivation.

Interior

The Fiat 124 Spider has two seats. Because this is a convertible, the interior has a sporty, open-air feel. Though there are some less-luxurious materials, the interior is, overall, good quality. The cabin has standard cloth upholstery. Manual or automatic climate control is available depending on the trim level.




There are a few additional features like heated seats, Recaro sport seats and leather upholstery. The Fiat 124 Spider Abarth is the highest trim level and has the most interior features.

Technology

The Fiat 124 Spider has a tech offering that works well with its sporty design. There is the standard infotainment system (with a seven-inch screen), and it is easy to use with both touchscreen and physical controls. Bluetooth and a four-speaker stereo system are also standard. Driver tech includes a rearview camera. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are not supported. There are some tech upgrades available, such as a nine-speaker Bose sound system, navigation and satellite radio.

Space

Because the Fiat 124 Spider is a small sports car, space is limited. However, with the top down, there is an open feel and room for upright cargo. Though taller people might find the headroom and legroom tight with the top up, the two seats provide enough comfort to enjoy the driving experience.




The trunk space is on the smaller side at 4.9 cubic feet, but it provides enough room for a weekend trip or carrying smaller items. Shorter road trips, commutes and day drives are what this car is all about.

Comfort

The Fiat 124 Spider delivers a fun and comfortable ride. The ride quality, though firm, is not harsh, and the above-average handling can take on winding roads. Steering and braking are also strong points. Of course, road and wind noise will increase if you have the top down, but the noise is limited on well-maintained roads. If you select the sportier Fiat 124 Abarth, you will get a stiffer suspension. The Fiat 124 Spider is perfect for day-tripping comfort.
