Tons of Fun At a Great Price

Edmunds.com logo Edmunds.com 6/13/2017 AnClar

I've owned a couple of 2-seat roadsters...a 2004 Porsche Boxster, and my 2017 Fiat 124 Spider Abarth. The Boxster, at close to $60,000 was one of the best pure driver's cars I've ever driven. That said, for half the price of the Porsche, I get 95% of the driving fun with my Abarth Spider. I've had the car for about 6 months now...it was one of the first Abarths delivered in my area. So far, with almost 5,000 miles on it, it has been pure enjoyment. Since neither my wife nor I are particularly large people we find the cockpit of the Abarth more than comfortable, even on long rides. The fit and finish is beautiful...ours is pearl white with the black leather interior...it turns heads wherever we go. I've had many people ask what the car was and have gotten nothing but compliments from everyone. I'm really glad we got the Abarth...the upgrades are worth it, and make all the driving difference. The Abarth's quad exhaust has a much nicer note than the Lusso or Classica. Not that they are bad...just a bit quieter than I like. The biggest difference is the Sport mode selector on the automatic transmission. Since my wife opted for the auto, the paddle shifters on the Abarth are a good compromise. Also in Sport mode, the shifts are much sharper, and responsive. Overall, this car is a winner for us...great looking, fun to drive, and a great value for the money. If you're in the market for a great 2-seat roadster, give this one a long look...odds are you won't be disappointed!
