The 2017 Fiat 124 Spider was first shown at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show. We thought that due to its Italian styling, slightly more high-end interior and turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine that the 124 Spider would be more expensive than the ND Mazda Miata on which it’s based, but it turns out we were wrong.
Fiat today announced pricing for the 124 Spider, with the entry-level Classico model starting at $24,995. For this price, buyers will get 16-inch wheels, dual-exit exhaust, a cloth interior and a six-speed manual transmission. The 124 Spider ‘Classico’ with the six-speed automatic transmission command a slightly higher MSRP of $26,345.
The middle of the range 124 Spider Lusso will start at $27,495. Over the Classico, this equipment group adds 17-inch wheels, a leather interior, chrome tip dual exit exhausts and piano black interior trim. With the six-speed automatic, the price of the 124 Spider Lusso climbs to $28,845.
Rounding out the model range is the 124 Spider Abarth performance variant, which commands a $28,195 MSRP with the six-speed manual and $29,545 MSRP with the automatic. The 124 Spider Abarth differs from the standard car thanks to its performance front and rear fascias, quad-exit exhausts, matte black hood, Abarth badges, sport suspension and 17-inch gun metal wheels. Brembo brakes and Recaro seats are available as optional extras.
Finally, for a limited amount of time Fiat will be offering the ‘124 Spider Prima Edizione Lusso’ launch edition. Each Prima Edizione model will be individually numbered and will be available only in Azzurro Italia Blue with a saddle beige leather interior. Prices start at $35,000.
