Which 124 Spider is the Best?

How much are you planning to drive your 124 Spider? If you're just looking for a cost-effective weekend toy, there's little reason to spend extra for the niceties included on the upper trim levels. The Classica is far from basic and you'll get virtually the same joyful driving experience. Otherwise, if you're okay with paying a bit more, go for the Abarth. It looks and sounds cooler, and when we're talking about sports cars, that counts for a lot. Find a FIAT 124 Spider for sale


How Much Does a 2017 FIAT 124 Spider Cost?

There are three trim levels available: the Classica, Lusso and Abarth. Standard equipment on the Classica includes 16-inch wheels, push-button start, cruise control, air conditioning, driver's-seat adjustable under-thigh support, cloth upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, Bluetooth and a 4-speaker sound system with a traditional radio interface sourced from Mazda. The Technology Collection adds keyless/passive entry, a rearview camera and Mazda's 7-in infotainment display (which includes a console-mounted controller).

The Lusso includes the Technology Collection items plus 17-in wheels, automatic headlights, fog lights, automatic wipers, automatic climate control, leather upholstery and heated seats. The Premium Collection adds adaptive LED headlights, auto-dimming mirrors, blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, rear parking sensors, a navigation system integrated into the standard 7-in display, satellite radio and a 9-speaker Bose audio system.

The Abarth gets a bit more power, a sport-tuned suspension, quad tailpipes, a strut tower brace for improved handling, a Sport driving mode, special styling, sport seats upholstered in a leather/microfiber mix, and a sport steering wheel. Upgraded Brembo performance brakes can be added to the Abarth. Its Luxury Collection is identical to the Lusso's Premium Collection, but it does add full leather seating. Alcantara faux suede upholstery can supplant that leather as an option.

Both trims can equipped with the Safety and Comfort Collection, which includes just the auto-dimming mirrors, parking sensors, and blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert systems.

Is the 2017 FIAT 124 Spider a Safe Car?

Every 2017 Fiat 124 Spider comes standard with antilock brakes, traction and stability control, and front and side airbags. A rearview camera, parking sensors, and blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert systems are optional.

The 124 Spider has not been crash-tested by a third party. Neither has the MX-5 Miata.

2017 FIAT 124 Spider vs the competition

2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata -- It's about 85 percent the exact same car, but with a different engine, different styling and less warranty coverage. It's also available in the RF body style not available on the 124 Spider.

2017 Toyota 86 -- It's not a convertible, but the 86 and its Subaru BRZ twin are the closest thing you'll get to the 124's lightweight, rear-wheel-drive setup.

Used Porsche Boxster -- Its higher price will mean you'll likely need to look at used versions, but that's okay, as the Boxster has been one of the funnest and most rewarding cars on the market for decades. Porsche also has an excellent certified pre-owned car program.
