If you’re shopping for a fun ride that offers power, performance, and a host of impressive luxuries, then you simply must test drive the Fiat 124 Spider and its upscale sibling, the Spider Abarth. Both offer the top-down enjoyment of an award-winning two-seater, responsive handling, and unique features that competitors like the Mazda MX-5 Miata omit. Add on Fiat’s legacy of excellence, and it’s clear which is the right choice for Orland Park adventure-seekers who want more.
Having an attractive ride is great – unless it can’t protect you. The Fiat offers amenities like active head restraints and ParkSense rear park assist to help keep drivers safeguarded and avoid obstacles they may not be able to see. The Mazda Miata doesn’t offer a whiplash protection system, and drivers cannot add a parking assist system.
The Fiat 124 Spider offers drivers access to a potent 1.4L 4-cylinder engine capable of 160 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque, while the Abarth trim provides a 164-hp version of the same engine that generates as much as 184 lb-ft of torque. The Mazda MX-5 Miata’s 2.0L 4-cylinder powerplant makes just 155 hp and 148 lb-ft of peak torque.
Explore the luxury, interior design, and, of course, the power of the 2018 Fiat 124 Spider and see how it matches up against competitors like the Mazda Miata when you schedule a test drive at Bettenhausen CDJR in Tinley Park.
