What can you tell us about the 2019 Fiat 124 Spider? 

Reviving a historic nameplate, the Fiat 124 Spider brings performance and iconic Italian styling to a whole new generation. The original 124 Spider was introduced more than 50 years ago and just like then, the Fiat 124 Spider is delivering unsurpassable Italian roadster experiences by combining the latest in vehicle safety, technology and driving mechanics with classic Italian design. The Fiat 124 Spider takes cues from the original Spider - dubbed as one of Fiat's most beautiful vehicles - and reinvents them for the 2019 model year. The new Spider's design showcases a sporty cabin-to-hood ratio, incredibly well-balanced proportions, and a timeless low-slung presence. Underneath the hood of the roadster is a 1.4-liter MultiAir Turbo 4-cylinder engine, the first time this engine has been used in a vehicle with rear-wheel drive. Pumping out up to 164 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque, this engine can be mated to a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. The 124 Spider's suspension is tuned specifically for greater stability during periods of braking and turning utilizing a front double wishbone layout and a rear multi-link layout. An electronic power-assist or dual-pinion system make steering light and responsive! Safety and security features available include a rearview camera, rear cross path detection, blind-spot monitoring, and LED adaptive front headlamps. Tech and convenience features found within the model include a 7" touchscreen interface, Fiat Connect 7.0 infotainment system, a nine-speaker Bose sound system, Bluetooth, heated seats, and Keyless Enter 'n Go!
