7)FIAT 124 Spider
The 124 Spider is an Italian sports car that retails in the US starting at $24,995. Some of the design and styling elements of this car are derived from Fiat’s iconic 124 Sport Spider, which was first unveiled in 1966.
Fiat claims that the 1.4 litre MultiAir turbo engine on the 2017 model 124 Spider puts out the most power in the car’s class. 160 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque is sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual transmission with a short throw shifter. An optional six-speed automatic transmission is designed to maximize fuel efficiency.
A Bilstein performance suspension with stiff springs reduces body roll. The car’s weight distribution is close to a perfect 50/50, adding to the handling confidence. The 124’s interior features heated leatherette and microfiber sport seats. The leather wrapped steering wheel has integrated recessed controls for audio and other functions, to expedite selections and minimize interference with steering actions.
