The model that has been producing since 1966, 2017 Fiat 124 Spider is ready to receive a new life after a half-century. Presentation of the new roadster was held at the Motor Show in Los Angeles. Unlike its predecessor, which was four-seated, 2017 Fiat 124 Spider will be exclusively two-seater.
Despite close design of Italian model with Japanese roadster (general layout, independent front and rear suspension, modern body structure as well as chassis with high-strength steel and aluminium making curb mass between 1100 kg and 1130 kg), 2017 Fiat 124 Spider has different exterior body design and four-cylinder 1.4 liter MultiAir Turbo petrol engine (power of 140 HP and 240 Nm) under the hood together with 6 speed manual an automatic transmission.
The dimensions of 2017 Fiat 124 Spider are: length - 4055 mm, width - 1730 mm, height - 1235 mm. In addition, the value of wheelbase is 2310 mm, and clearance - 135 mm. As Italian designers have worked on glory, the result of their work became a bright modern car, without any road elegance.
The cabin of is alomst different compared to Japanese roadster, as every detail is placed simply and ergonomically. There are more soft materials, more comfortable chairs with more leather usage. Need to give special attention to the multimedia console, gear selector, and driving dashboard. Thanks to the similarities with the latter, 2017 Fiat 124 Spider will be equipped with Bluetooth fourth generation, interesting multimedia screen, and number of security systems. Interestingly, the handbrake lever is closer to the right passenger and most likely, this is due to Japanese right-hand drive configuration.
