Review 

The 2020 Fiat 124 Spider is a sports car that ranks near the bottom of the class. These two-seat convertible features give a luxurious interior and a well-balanced performance, but it lacks seating and trunk capacity, and it has a poor predicted reliability rating. With four more horsepower, the Abarth model cranks up the heat for a notch, and this variant hits maximum torque lower in the RPM. It’s not a rocket ship, but it’s a lot of fun to wring that much power out of it.

The Fiat 124 Spider is available in four trim levels.

  1. Classica
  2. Urbana
  3. Lusso
  4. Abarth 

Each trim has a 160-horsepower turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine. Rear-wheel drive and six-speed manual transmission are standard; a six-speed automatic transmission is optional. Although this turbo engine is less, it delivers a punch. There’s 184 pound-feet of torque available, which is more than enough to get up to speed and past other cars once the turbo kicks in. There’s a nice zing to the exhaust note as well.

Because of its fluid action and well-spaced gears, the 124 Spider’s manual transmission is a joy to shift. The six-speed automatic transmission is also rather decent; gear changes are smooth and quick, albeit it upshifts a little too quickly on occasion.

What is the seating capacity?

The Fiat 124 Spider is a roadster with two seats. Leather upholstery and heated seats are standard; leather upholstery and heated seats are optional. 

How many Child Car Seats are there?

The Fiat Spider, such as many two-seat sports vehicles, lacks LATCH connectors for fastening child safety seats. In any vehicle, we do not advocate installing a car seat in the front seat.

Interior Quality

The interior of the 124 Spider is substantially identical to that of the Mazda MX-5 Miata, which is generally a positive thing. Most of the interior area is covered in soft-touch plastic, and the dashboard is elegantly fashioned with a basic layout. However, there are a few hard plastics strewn about. The Fiat’s interior filters out many wind and road noises, one of the 124’s biggest advantages over the Miata – and many other compact convertibles.

Cargo Space

The Fiat Spider has a trunk space of only 4.9 cubic feet. Larger suitcases will not fit, but there is enough place for a pair of shopping totes or leather pouches. Look at the Dodge Challenger or Ford Mustang if you want a sports car with a larger trunk, both feature over ten cubic feet of cargo space.

Infotainment, Bluetooth, and Navigation

A 7-inch touch screen, four speakers,  two USB ports, air conditioning, remote keyless, Bluetooth connectivity, and push-button start are all standard on the Fiat 124 Spider. Navigation, a nine-speaker Bose audio, HD Radio, satellite radio, proximity keyless entry, and automatic climate control are all available features. The 124’s touch-screen infotainment system is simple to operate and features sharp visuals. A knob and buttons can also control this system on the center console, which might be useful when driving. The air conditioning controls the 124 basic areas as they come, with only three knobs on the dashboard. The infotainment system, on the other hand, does not support Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.

Should I Buy a 2020 FIAT 124 Spider?

If you want a simple, back-to-basics sports vehicle, the 124 Spider is a great option. It’s little, cheap, and a lot of fun to drive. However, it’s not a car you’d want to use for errands or everyday excursions around town. Tall passengers will find the inside cramped, and the trunk is small. If you’re looking for a sports car with a larger trunk room, consider the Subaru BRZ or Ford Mustang. Both of these competitors feature four seats as well.
