2017 Fiat 124 Spider Price, Specs, Release Date
Following the carrier of Mazda MX-5, the sister is ready to come out which is called 2017 Fiat Spider as it has been reported by various media. It is mentioned that this car will be built with the wheelbase and chassis shared from the new Miata. It is expected that the design would not be too far from the unique Fiat 124 Spider that was introduced in 1960 so that it has retro look for its body architecture.
2017 Fiat Spider 124 was released for the first time in 1966 with the design of 2 + 2 roadster. It is a coupe that was designed with great success and even it went through 1985 Pininfarina Spider Azzura. At that time, Mazda announced that they would like to release the new 2016 MX-5 Miata and they allow the co-added to skeleton of roadster with FCA but the FCA at first will use the frame to support the roadster, Alfa Romeo. Later, they considered using it under Fiat. In March, 2015 at Geneva Auto Show, FCA came out with big news that they are ready to offer the new Fiat Spider 124 as 2016 model year. Its name was finally confirmed and it will be the new roadster to offer.
2017 Fiat 124 Spider Specs
It is not easy to describe about the design of this new 2017 Fiat Spider but we glad to know that the car is quite easy to be differentiate from its sister, MX-5. Based on some spy shots, we could see that the body of the car has been honored with the MX-5 and it could be seen from the front sash. The headlamps are restyled with the different shape of grille. It is also designed with the new air inlets for its front guard. There is a big expectation among people that the rear belt should be designed with modified guard and it should have new taillights.
When you go inside, the car is totally different from Mazda. We do hope that the company would like to offer more premium look with the presence of alcantara and calf leather. There also should be completed with the shading that we cannot find out in MX-5. 2017 Fiat Spider should go with the flavorful contrast.
