The Fiat 124 Spider is the most affordable turbocharged convertible in America.

For the 2018 model year, the Italian automaker has updated the package content on the Lusso and Abarth models for added flexibility so customers can choose the exact options they want. The convertible is also getting an all-new Red Top Edition on the Fiat 124 Spider Lusso later this year. Shoppers can also choose from three new exterior paint shades: Puro Bianco Perla (tri-coat white pearl), Grigio Chiaro (silver metallic), and Blu Scuro (dark blue metallic).

Under the hood remains a 1.4-liter MultiAir Turbo four-cylinder engine providing 160 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque on the Classic and Lusso models. The Abarth model gets a slight bump in performance to 164 hp, while also benefiting from front and rear Bilstein sport suspension, mechanical limited-slip differential, front strut tower bar, Sport Mode selector, and sport-tuned chrome quad-tip exhaust.
