How does the powertrain measure up in 2018?

The 124 Spider gets a jump on things with its turbocharged 1.4L 4-cylinder engine and an option of a standard 6-speed manual transmission or an available 6-speed automatic. The manual transmission with this engine can achieve 35 mpg highway, and it optimizes clutch operation for responsive driving characteristics. Both the 124 Spider Classica and 124 Spider Lusso have a 160-horsepower at 5,500 RPMs and 184 lb-ft of torque. That said, a sport exhaust system coalesces overall engine output for the 124 Spider Abarth to assist in getting up to 164 horsepower (identical RPMs). The 2018 Fiat 124 Spider has, as standard, a front double-­wishbone sport suspension and a multi-­link for the back end. The rear-wheel-drive 124 Spider works with a close to 50/50 weight distribution, honed steering calibrations, and with strong brakes. Abarth trims are more athletic, with a standard Bilstein Performance Suspension with a front strut tower brace for superior handling. Stiff front/rear spring rates mitigate potential body roll, and a rear stabilizer bar assists in cornering grip strength. Shock absorbers also weigh-in and translate maximum grip into a tangible form to the driver. This car is meant for driving, not just hum-drum daily commutes!

Can you outling some different feature sets as the models change?

There are three models of the 2018 Fiat Spider: the Classica, the Lusso, and the Abarth. The caveat to this is the (late-availability) all-new Red Top Edition on the Lusso trim. The Classica has the 1.4L engine, 16-inch aluminum wheels painted Silver with 195/50VR16 tri-season performance tires and a 6-Speed Manual Transmission with Short-Throw Shifter. The Lusso model incorporates 17-inch premium aluminum wheels painted Silver with 205/45VR17 tri-season performance tires, foglights, automatic headlights, dual chrome-finish exhaust tips, and access to SiriusXM Satellite Radio.
