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.
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.
