    FIAT® SPIDER. The FIAT® Spider was named Best Sports Car for the Money by U.S. News & World Report, taking top honors for its outstanding.

    The new Fiat Spider Abarth is a distinctly different machine from its Japanese progenitor.

    Pull-Ahead Bonus Cash will be deducted from the negotiated price after taxes. The Mazda and the Fiat are considerably more alike inside, with mostly minor revisions different shift knobs, thicker door padding, and shinier surfaces in the marking otherwise equally clean and efficient cockpits. Integral to this high-strength structure are crumple zones that are designed to help absorb collision energy and redirect it away from occupants. Axle gearing also differs greatly between the Fiat and Mazda manuals to suit the very different torque characteristics of these engines and the Fiat's added mass.

    FIAT Spider - Convertible Sports Car

    Recent dramatic weight loss has enabled me to drive a whole new category of vehicles that had previously been out of reach for me - small sports cars with aggressive seats. For those not familiar with it, the Fiat Spider is the product of a joint venture between Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and Mazda, wherein Fiat took a new "ND" MX-5 Miata and gave it a new body, new powertrain, slightly different interior bits and slapped a historically significant name on the result. Some of us in the journalism world refer to it unflatteringly as the "Fiata.

    It's softer than a typical Miata, with a more relaxed suspension, slower steering and more sound insulation. And unlike the Miata, it comes with a turbocharged engine - the Spider Abarth you see here uses Fiat's MultiAir 1.

    That gives it a little bit more power but a lot more torque. I recently spent more than a week and 1, miles in a Spider, and had some thoughts on this snarly little Italian-Japanese mini- kaiju. The Spider wasn't good looking before the gaping maw Abarth treatment, and it's not helped by it at all.

    It also sits oddly high. Thankfully, you don't notice these things while driving it. Yet strangely, it gets a lot of positive attention - people stop and stare admiringly all over town. The Grigio Argento Aluminum paint isn't really my first choice, either. I think I'd have a white pearl one with the red interior and matte-black hood. The Miata was fun, but the torque the teeny 1. It feels considerably quicker than an ND Miata, with tons of midrange punch even with the very well-matched automatic transmission that my test car came with.

    The manual transmission might elicit a different response, but when ticked into Sport mode, which changes the throttle pedal mapping, it feels sprightly and properly responsive. I drove it from Ann Arbor, Mich. It's softer than the Miata -- not quite as razor-sharp in handling, but that also means the ride isn't as tiring. I also love how I sit really far back on the chassis; it feels like the rotation point is in front of me. It desperately needs an aftermarket exhaust system to make it sound like a true Abarth.

    The Abarth will wake your neighbors; the Spider Abarth doesn't announce your arrival at all. It's the seat pattern - it's Italian in a classical way, the same kind of look you see in classic Ferraris and Alfa Romeos. The Mazda multimedia system, however, is just OK; I wish they could have gone with FCA's Uconnect instead and eliminated the selector knob in the center console.

    If I could pick and choose the best from both brands, my own brand-new Fiata would look like this:.
