Fiat 124 Spider future in doubt – report

In a move that doesn’t bode well for the future of the Fiat 124 Spider, the Mazda MX-5-based drop-top has been dropped from Fiat’s European range. That includes its sportier Abarth 124 Spider counterpart, the only 124 variant offered here. What distinguished the car the most from its Mazda MX-5 twin – the 1.4-litre MultiAir turbocharged four-cylinder engine – is what appears to have done the 124 in.

2016-18 Abarth 124 Spider recalled

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has recalled the 2016-2018 model-year Abarth 124 Spider over concerns automatic models could suddenly shift into first gear while the vehicle is in motion. The manufacturer says incorrect software in the transmission control module could make the car engage first gear when in moving in 'D'. If the condition occurs, this poses a safety risk to the vehicle's occupants and other road users.

Abarth 124 Spider confirmed for Australia, Fiat version ruled out

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Australia (FCA) has confirmed it will bring only the Abarth 124 Spider flagship roadster to our market, leaving the regular Fiat model off the local schedule. Unveiled at March’s Geneva motor show, the top-shelf Abarth-enhanced version of the new 124 Spider, itself based on Mazda’s new MX-5, is powered by a turbocharged 1.4-litre four-cylinder petrol engine producing 127kW of power and 250Nm of torque.
