Abarth 124 Spider (2016–)

What's good

Great performance from the 170PS engine, with plenty of torque for overtaking. 

Wonderfully-weighted steering and gearchange. 

Huge fun to drive on a B-road. 

What to watch out for

Cramped cabin, which is simply too small for taller drivers.

Small boot.

Expensive compared to Mazda MX-5 or Fiat 124.

8-1-2019: FIAT 124 Spider withdrawn from UK market.

April 2019: Abarth 124 Spider withdrawn from UK market.

20-9-2019: Windscreens for Abarth 124 Spiders and FIAT 124 Spiders first reported to us to be in short supply and very expensive.
