Nearly five decades after the original edition first took to the streets, the return of the Fiat 124 Spider brings with it exceptional Italian flair and chic design, leaving an impression on the most discerning of drivers. A two-seat roadster with style in abundance, this eye-catching model is the ultimate combination of great looks, impressive performance, and intelligent technology. And, with its seductive appeal certain to keep you coming back time after time, you can be confident the Fiat 124 Spider is a model for the ages.
Featuring all the hallmarks of contemporary roadster design, the new 124 Spider comes with a retractable roof, an elongated bonnet, and distinctive LED headlights. With 16 or 17-inch alloy wheels also available, and a low-slung driving position, this is a model that is every inch a sports enthusiast’s ideal. The cabin is no less compelling, with the large central touchscreen, premium materials, and sporty, ergonomic arrangement providing you with the ultimate drive.
When it comes to performance, the 124 Spider doesn’t disappoint. Powered by a 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine that offers 138bhp, the race from 0-60mph can be completed in just over seven seconds. Combined with the short-throw manual gearbox, snappy, smooth transitions through the gears further adds to the sense of fun to be experienced in this exceptional roadster.

The new FIAT 124 Spider offers a range of technologies to enhance the driving experience while also keeping occupants safe and connected. The most important information is fed to the driver in the traditional way, via a three-gauge cluster with a large analogue tachometer in the centre, flanked by a speedometer and an information display. The standard infotainment unit offers a high level of equipment including a USB/auxiliary input, six speakers and Bluetooth connectivity, while the enhanced version features a seven-inch touchscreen display, DAB digital radio, two USB ports, multimedia control, a reversing camera and a 3D navigation system, with phone calls, music and navigation all voice-controlled. A Bose® premium sound system with nine speakers, including twin headrest speakers per seat and a subwoofer, is also available as an option. The system also provides drivers with access to Aha* and Stitcher* Internet radio apps via Bluetooth connectivity.
The pursuit of driving pleasure hasn’t been at the expense of occupant wellbeing and the new FIAT 124 Spider has been engineered to meet the highest safety standards, with a high strength body engineered to provide excellent impact-absorption characteristics. In the event of a frontal impact, for example, multi-load path structures within the body distribute impact energy along two main channels, dispersing and absorbing energy within special crash structures and across the side sills, B-pillars and central tunnel. Side impact energy is managed by a ring-like structure incorporating the rear portion of the sills, rear cross member and seatback bars, allowing the entire body to absorb the energy, while rear collision protection is provided by combining high-tensile steel and robust structures with strategic deformation control and load distribution channels.
Pedestrian-friendly “active” bonnet, stability control, traction control and rollover mitigation are all offered as standard. Features such as adaptive headlamps, reversing camera, rain-sensitive wipers, keyless entry ‘n’ go and voice-operated infotainment and navigations systems will be standard or optional dependant on grade.
