2019 FIAT 124 Spider Review

 

Are you tired of driving the same old car through the Ontario, Wayne County, and Sodus areas? If so, it might be time to upgrade to something with a bit more kick. Opting for something that’s more than sporty can offer you a fun driving experience that turns every ride into a thrill. You just have to find the right vehicle.

While there are plenty of sporty options available, the new 2019 FIAT 124 Spider stands out as one of the best. With race-inspired performance coupled with Italian style, you’re in for a unique driving experience that you won’t be able to find anywhere else. Learn more about the 2019 FIAT 124 Spider, and find out if it’s right for you in our comprehensive review.

Performance

The most stunning aspect of the 2019 FIAT 124 Spider is its performance, and that’s thanks in large part to its powerful engine. Included standard is the 1.4-liter MultiAir® turbo engine. This bad boy offers 160 horsepower with 184 lb-ft of torque. It features twin intercoolers and a fresh-air induction system to ensure you always get the responsiveness you need. As an added bonus, you get dual stainless steel exhaust tips.

While all 2019 124 Spider models feature the same engine, you can choose what kind of transmission you want. It comes standard with a 6-speed manual transmission with a short-throw shifter, but you can also opt for a 6-speed automatic transmission if that’s more your style. Additionally, you can enjoy either Bilstein performance suspension or independent touring suspension for the precise control you deserve.

Technology

If you’re a fan of automotive technology, the 2019 FIAT 124 Spider certainly doesn’t disappoint with its FIAT Connect 7.0 infotainment system. The 7-inch touchscreen allows you access to all sorts of apps, like Pandora®, Aha™, and Stitcher™. You can also enjoy Bluetooth® connectivity and SiriusXM® radio. This same screen is also used for the ParkView® Rear Back Up Camera, which makes reversing easier than ever.

To truly spruce up your infotainment system, make sure you opt for the GPS navigation system. With this, you can get 2-D or 3-D maps that can help you get to your destination with ease. There are even extra features included, like on-screen speed limit information, landmark highlights, and more.

Interior

Inside the 2019 FIAT 124 Spider, you’ll find plenty of room and comforts you may not have expected from a car designed for performance. With available premium leather and microfiber sport seats, you’ll have no problem getting comfortable. They’re even heated, so you can stay toasty during those cold-weather drives.

You can also enjoy the sheer space available, thanks to the roomy dimensions inside this sports car. When you’re behind the wheel, you’ll have 37.8 inches of headroom and an incredible 43.1 inches of legroom at your disposal. With 52.1 inches of shoulder room, both you and your passenger can be comfortable on the ride.
