Designed to Impress

The 2020 FIAT 124 Spider is bold, seductive, sporty, and everything in between thanks to its fine Italian design, lively engine, and convenient mechanics. Letting the 2020 Mazda MX-5 Miata that there’s a new sheriff in town, the two roadsters go head to head to determine who wins the crown. To skip to the good part and get behind the wheel of the FIAT 124 Spider, come on down to Crown FIAT of Dublin.

Outside, the 2020 FIAT 124 Spider is attractive with its optimistic front end that incorporates circular projector headlights with LED daytime runners with an athletic-inspired front fascia. The 124 Spider uses intelligent features that cause you to look closer, like its sleek LED taillamps, available headlamp washers, and voluptuous contour lines. Ride on the 2020 124 Spider’s 17-inch alloy wheels and you’re sure to get stares and glances as you cruise past onlookers.

The 2020 Mazda MX-5 Miata still lives in memory, reminiscing on its days in the 90s when it was truly iconic; nowadays it hardly beckons a first glance. Up front, it presents a sloped front end that incorporates integrated headlights while a fender flare gives any hopes of excitement. At its rear, circular tail lights accent its backside while it rides on 16-inch alloy wheels.

Luxurious & Comfortable Interior

True to its Italian roots, the 2020 FIAT 124 Spider features a luxurious interior that’s well-appointed thanks to luxuries like available heated leather seats that come in a variety of tantalizing colors. Their ergonomic design incorporates available seat heat, while luxuries include elegant touches like the leather-wrapped steering wheel. Feel free to pack a bag and go on a road trip thanks to nearly 5 cubic feet of cargo space.

There’s not much excitement inside the 2020 MX-5 Miata, however, it does offer the essentials in a neat manner. Available leather seats provide some comfort on chilly mornings while a leather-wrapped steering wheel provides a sense of elegance inside the tight cabin.

Performance that Invigorates You

Under the hood of the 2020 FIAT 124 Spider is a lively 1.4-liter MULTIAIR® turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that generates up to 164 horsepower and 184lb-ft of torque. Mated to a quick-shifting 6-speed manual transmission with sport mode, the 124 Spider is ready to tear up the road. The available Monza exhaust lets the engine roar as you enjoy power to its redline, while available Brembo brakes slow things down when you need serious stopping power. For those who prefer to let their car do the shifting, the 124 Spider features an optional 6-speed automatic transmission that even allows the sporty roadster to return an EPA-estimated 36MPG on the highway.

The 2020 Mazda MX-5 Miata is driven by a naturally aspirated SKYACTIV-G 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that generates 181 horsepower and 151lb-ft of torque. Although the 124 Spider is powered by a smaller engine, its turbocharged technology gives you far superior torque than the Miata.

Safety As Your Co-Pilot

You’re always safe and sound in the 2020 FIAT 124 Spider thanks to available safety systems that act as your virtual co-pilot. Available blind-spot monitoring watches over your shoulder so you can change lanes with confidence, while available rear cross-traffic alert keeps a lookout for you as you reverse out of driveways and parking spaces. While you venture in your 124 Spider, you can rest assured that your FIAT roadster has your back.

The 2020 Mazda MX-5 Miata also puts an emphasis on safety as seen in similar driver-assist features like blind spot assist and rear cross-traffic alert, which ensures that even when you dare to venture in the less-exciting Miata, that you still have some sense of security.

Innovative Technology Features

Technology is abundant and awaits at your fingertips in the 2020 FIAT 124 Spider. A 7-inch full-color touchscreen infotainment system ensures that you’ve always connected to the world thanks to an array of features packed inside. Available GPS Navigation features 2D and 3D maps that give you the most intuitive connection to the world.

Copying the FIAT, the MX-5 Miata also boasts a 7-inch touchscreen display, but features like the available navigation system fall short of the system found in the 124 Spider.
