Debuted at the 2015 Los Angeles Motor Show, Fiat brought back the 124 moniker with the 2016 Fiat 124 Spider. The two-seater convertible sports car is a joint venture between Fiat and Mazda and based on the already launched latest generation of Mazda’s MX-5.

The convertible will be powered by Fiat’s very own 1.4-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder engine from the 500 Abarth, producing 140PS and 240Nm of torque. The transmission could either be a 6-speed manual or an automatic gearbox.

As expected, even the 124 Spider gets the Abarth treatment. This variant features minimal changes on the mechanical front and a lot more in the cosmetic department. Here’s what you can expect from the Fiat 124 Spider. The car is expected to hit European market by mid-2016 or early-2017.

Great mix of analogue dials and button-free entertainment console. It’s great to have the short gear lever and the conventional handbrake back!
