First 2017 Fiat 124 Spider Roadsters Arrive in U.S.

Coming to dealerships next week

After a 30-year hiatus, the Fiat 124 Spider has finally returned to our shores. Fiat has shipped the very first batch of new 124 Spider roadsters to the U.S.

The 2017 Fiat 124 Spider roadsters arrived at the Port of Baltimore and the Port of San Diego, and will soon make their way to showrooms in North America. The very first copies will arrive at dealerships next week.

Mazda is producing the 124 Spider for Fiat at its plant in Hiroshima, Japan. The Fiat roadster shares its underpinnings with the Mazda MX-5 Miata. But in place of the Miata's 2.0-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine, the Fiat 124 utilizes a 1.4-liter turbo with 160 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. An Abarth version gets an additional 4 hp and is estimated to hit 60 mph in 6.8 seconds.

Prices start at $25,990 for the base model and $29,190 for the Abarth. A limited-edition 124 Prima Edizione, which features exclusive badging, Saddle leather upholstery, and an Azzuro Italia blue paint job, goes for $35,995.

Sales of the old Fiat 124 Spider began in the U.S. in 1968 and ended in 1985. Fiat estimates that nearly 8,000 of them are still registered in the U.S. today.
