Loaded with safety, security and technology features
The all-new roadster is available with an array of safety and security features, including adaptive front headlamps,
Blind-spot Monitoring, Rear Cross Path detection and ParkView reversing camera. A high-strength body helps to dissipate
energy while optimising occupant protection.
The Fiat 124 Spider is also available with technology features for added comfort and convenience, including the Fiat

Design pays homage to past with modern interpretation of styling cues
The all-new Fiat 124 Spider, designed at Centro Stile in Turin, Italy, borrows cues from the original Spider – widely
considered one of Fiat’s most beautiful cars of all time – and reinterprets them for today.
The 2017 124 Spider has a timeless low-slung presence, with a classically beautiful bodyside, well-balanced
proportions and a sporty cabin-to-hood ratio. Features like the hexagonal upper grille and grille pattern, “power domes”
on the bonnet and sharp horizontal rear lamps call to mind details of the historic Spider.
The interior is crafted and designed to focus on the occupants, with premium soft-touch materials throughout.
Ergonomics were applied to emphasise the driving experience and ensure easy operation of the steering wheel, pedals and
shifter while driving.
The Fiat 124 Spider is available in two trim levels: Classica and Lusso. Each model is available in six exterior paint
colours, including Rosso Passione (Red Clear Coat), Bianco Gelato (White Clear Coat), Nero Cinema (Jet Black Metallic),
Grigio Argento (Gray Metallic), Grigio Moda (Dark Gray Metallic) and Bronzo Magnetico (Bronze Metallic). The Lusso
(“Luxury”) model is also available in tri-coat Bianco Perla (Crystal White Pearl).

and available in exclusive Azzurro Italia (Blue) exterior paint with premium
