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 2018 FIAT 124 Spider Cost?

There are three trim levels available: the Classica, Lusso and Abarth.

Standard equipment on the Classica ($25,000) includes 16-inch wheels, cruise control, air conditioning, driver's-seat adjustable under-thigh support, cloth upholstery, a leather-wrapped tilt-only steering wheel, Bluetooth and a 4-speaker sound system with a traditional radio interface sourced from Mazda. The Technology and SiriusXM Group adds proximity entry, a backup camera, satellite radio and Mazda's 7-in infotainment display (which includes a console-mounted controller).

The Lusso ($27,600) includes the Technology Collection items plus 17-in wheels, automatic headlights, fog lights, automatic wipers, automatic climate control and heated leather seats.

The Abarth ($28,300) gets a bit more power, a sport-tuned suspension, a quad-tip exhaust, a limited-slip differential, 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.

The Lusso and Abarth are eligible for a number of optional packages. The Navigation and Sound Group adds integrated navigation and a 9-speaker Bose sound system. The Comfort and Convenience Group adds rear parking sensors, blind-spot and rear cross-traffic warning systems, a security alarm, heated mirrors and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. The Visibility Group adds adaptive LED headlamps with washers and auto leveling. The Lusso's Red Top Edition includes a red cloth roof and the contents of the Visibility Group and the Navigation and Sound Group.

Competition

2018 FIAT 124 Spider vs the competition

2018 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. You may or may not like it better.

2018 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.
