2020 FIAT 124 Spider Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2020 Fiat 124 Spider?

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles teamed up with Japanese automaker Mazda to add a little spice to the Fiat brand’s lineup in the form of the 124 Spider roadster, which is related to Mazda’s MX-5 Miata. The two-seat 124 Spider comes with a manual-folding soft top, rear-wheel drive and a turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine.

What’s New on the 2020 Fiat 124 Spider?

A new Scorpion Sting side stripe and hood decal package is available for the Abarth version.

What Features in the 2020 Fiat 124 Spider Are Most Important?

All models can have a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission, and the top-of-the-line Abarth gets a slight performance boost with a tighter suspension and 164 horsepower (4 hp more than other trims). Blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert and rear parking sensors are available for Lusso and Abarth trims. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity aren’t offered.

Should I Buy the 2020 Fiat 124 Spider?

Though the 124 Spider is similar to the Mazda MX-5 Miata, its engine produces greater torque (184 pounds-feet versus the Miata’s 151 pounds-feet), making it easier to drive in low-speed, stop-and-go city conditions. Otherwise, they offer a similarly enjoyable driving experience that can make even daily commuting seem like fun. For those who like to shift for themselves, the 124 Spider’s manual transmission is a delight to use.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
