Fifty years since it first graced our roads, the new Fiat 124 Spider is back to inspire a whole new generation.
The new Fiat 124 Spider takes the classic 1960s design of its predecessor and brings it racing into the 21st century. The car’s nose is unmistakable, sporting rounded headlights and a wide, hexagonal grille inspired by the original model. The silhouette retains the classic feel too, with smooth, undulating curves and balanced proportions. The long bonnet is reminiscent of a traditional sports car, and the slender tail lights have been updated with body coloured inserts.
The look is completed by eight timeless paint colours, 16 or 17-inch alloy wheels depending on the trim you choose, and twin exhaust outlets that hark back to the car’s racing pedigree.
The iconic design cues continue into the 124 Spider’s interior, but are brought up-to-date with luxurious finishes and the latest technology. Relax into the wrap-around seats that offer maximum comfort and support, and grip the leather steering wheel to begin your drive. Every instrument and control is at your fingertips, meaning you can focus on the road ahead, while the wide windscreen provides optimum visibility, ensuring your view is unobstructed.
The premium feel is enhanced by exclusive leather upholstery on Lusso trims and above, while contrasting stitching and satin chrome inserts finish off the cabin’s classy appeal.
Powered by a 1.4-litre Turbo MultiAir engine with six-speed manual transmission as standard, the Fiat 124 Spider has all the flair you’d expect from a race-inspired sports car. Powering from 0-62mph in just 7.5 seconds and reaching a top speed of 134mph, it’s bound to get your pulse racing. Advanced technology has ensured this capability doesn’t unduly impact the environment – with a combined fuel consumption of 44.1mpg and 148g/km CO2, it’s economical as well as sporty.
Once you’re settled behind the wheel you’ll enjoy the superior stability and cornering produced by the finely tuned suspension, as well as the superbly balanced weight distribution that delivers a dynamic and smooth ride. If it’s a drive with Italian charisma you’re looking for, you’ll find it right here.
The new Fiat 214 Spider is packed with the latest technology to ensure a comfy drive. LED headlights with Adaptive Front-lighting System direct the beam into corners, providing maximum visibility as you enter turns, while rear parking assistance and a reversing camera make getting into any space a breeze.
Inside, the seven-inch touchscreen display gives you access to everything you need, from 3D maps for effortless navigation to Bluetooth connectivity should you need to make or take a call on the go. In Italy, music is one of life’s purest pleasures, and you can share the country’s passion for sound thanks to a DAB radio, USB ports and up to nine speakers, which deliver every note with crisp clarity.
Even in a sports car, safety is a top priority, which is why the 124 Spider comes with an array of features for your protection. From a high-tensile body shell and carefully designed structure that effectively absorbs the energy of an impact through to airbags and seat belts with pre-tensioners, this is a car that puts you first.
Other technologies include stability control, ABS and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, as well as a tyre pressure monitoring system and cruise control.
The new Fiat 124 Spider is available in three trim levels: Classica, Lusso and Lusso Plus. To find out more about this iconic Italian motor, or to book a test drive, contact the team at Rockingham Cars today.
