Car buyers from Lakeland, FL, in the market for a fun FIAT car should check out the wow-inducing 2017 FIAT 124 Spider. Available today at FIAT of Winter Haven, the 2017 FIAT 124 Spider is a front-engine, rear wheel-drive convertible that is sure to turn heads and get your heart racing with its good looks and sporty performance.
The new FIAT 124 Spider was reintroduced into the FIAT model line-up just last year, after originally being retired from the automaker in 1985 after a 19 year run. Though its design is bold and aggressive, with a long nose and low roadster stance, it retains more than a hint of the rounded shape for the head- and taillights signature to the FIAT look.
Powered by a 1.4-liter MultiAir® Turbo four-cylinder engine, the 2017 FIAT 124 Spider delivers 160 hp and up to 184 lb-ft of torque. The engine is driven by your choice of transmission – either a six-speed manual transmission with a short-throw shifter, or the AISIN six-speed automatic transmission which is paired with paddle shifters on the steering wheel in Abarth models.
Available in three trim levels, including a sport-tuned Abarth FIAT package, this 2-seater can be packed full of an array of extra goodies, including a Bose® nine-speaker audio system, GPS navigation, and a Parkview® rear back-up camera. In the Lusso and Abarth trim levels, drivers can also look for additional safety features like the Blind Spot Monitoring System and Rear Cross Path Detection.
