The Fiat 124 Spider is back! This is the 50th anniversary of the Spider's introduction, and it is the first time that the Spider has been sold in the United States in over 30 years. Early in July, the first shipments of the all-new 2017 Fiat 124 Spider Roadsters arrived in the United States. These vehicles arrived at the Port of Baltimore and the Port of San Diego.

Fiat 124 Spider vehicles were first introduced at the Turin Auto Show in 1966. Spider sales stopped in the United States in 1985, but there are still nearly 8,000 Fiat 124 Spiders still registered in the U.S. That makes it pretty clear the all-new 2017 Spider is something Americans have been waiting for.

The all-new 2017 Fiat 124 Spider brings together classic Italian styling and the performance, technology and safety that customers are looking for. It has a tuned electric power steering system for enhanced handling and fuel efficiency, as well as available safety features like Blind-spot Monitoring, Rear Cross Path and others.

As far as what is under the hood, the Spider has the proven 1.4-liter MultiAir Turbo four-cylinder engine. This engine has 160 horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque on Classica and Lusso, 164 horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque on Abarth, and is available with a six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic transmission. And the Fiat 124 Spider is headed your way.
