The wait is over and a stylish new roadster is hitting the UK roads. The Fiat 124 Spider will be an expression of pure Italian design and thrilling performance – and Sturgess will be among the first UK dealerships to stock the new model.
The Fiat 124 Spider has an athletic stance and a sleek silhouette that convey its high-performance character. This convertible sports car takes styling cues from the original model’s 1960s heritage, with stylised bulges in the bonnet. The entry-level model will feature 16-inch alloy wheels and higher grade trims swap these for 17-inch alloy wheels.
The fabric roof is folded and unfolded by hand, which is straightforward and takes just a few seconds. When you take your place behind the wheel you can appreciate the low-slung driving position and the premium feel of the two-seater cabin. The range-topping trim level features a sophisticated infotainment system with a large central touchscreen.
This lightweight model is fitted with an energetic 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine with a power output of 138bhp. The 124 Spider feels very fast and it sprints from 0-60mph in just over seven seconds. The short-throw manual gearbox helps you achieve slick transitions through the gears and minimise disruption to power delivery. The sophisticated suspension set up and well-weighted steering gives the 124 Spider a composed yet enthusiastic feel, turning every urban road and winding country lane into a racetrack.
