2017 Fiat 124 Spider Hits Dealerships This Week

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan — The all-new 2017 Fiat 124 Spider arrives at Fiat dealerships this week after a 30-year hiatus.

The first shipments of the 2017 124 Spider have arrived at the Port of Baltimore and the Port of San Diego, Fiat-Chrysler announced.

"Just in time for prime convertible season, customers will now have the opportunity to experience our Italian-designed, fun-to-drive roadster for themselves," said Bob Broderdorf, director of Fiat Brand North America, in a statement.

The new Fiat convertible shares a rear-wheel-drive platform with the redesigned 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata convertible.

The base 2017 124 Spider Classica model is priced at $25,990, including a $995 destination charge.

Standard equipment includes 16-inch alloy wheels, black premium cloth seats, halogen headlights, LED taillights and a six-speed manual transmission.

The 124 Spider is equipped with a turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 160 horsepower in the Classica and Lusso models. Horsepower rises to 165 on the high-end Abarth models.

Key competitors to the 124 Spider include the Audi TT, Mazda MX-5 Miata, Mini Cooper Roadster and Porsche 718 Boxster.

Edmunds says: Car shoppers get a great reason to visit their Fiat dealership, as the 2017 Fiat 124 Spider rolls out at the height of the top-down driving season.
