An Interior Designed For Drivers

Inside the 2-seat 2017 124 Spider, Ringgold, Sparta and Athens drivers will discover a cockpit designed for performance. Cloth upholstery is standard, but leather adorning upholstery and heated seats are available.

Sport seats, which provide extra support when drivers are conquering corners, are standard in the Abarth model.

Other available interior features include aluminum accent sport pedals and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with speed controls and built-in audio.

Roadsters typically don't offer a lot in the way of cargo space, but the 2017 124 Spider's 4.9 cubic feet of trunk space is more than competitors like the Mazda Miata and Nissan 370Z.

Performance & Handling

The new 124 Spider is powered by a standard class-exclusive 1.4L MultiAir Turbo - the most powerful four-cylinder engine in its class. Both the Lusso and Classica trims deliver up to 160 horsepower while the Abarth gets up to 164 horsepower.

As far as handling goes, the Lusso and Classica include a touring suspension with a double wishbone front and multilink rear design for responsive handling and solid control. For even better handling and an even greater grip on the road, drivers may want to target the Abarth trim with its Bilstein Performance Suspension.
