One of the great things that staff at Jake Sweeney FIAT enjoys is bringing news about great FIAT cars to our Dayton, OH neighbors. When we heard about the 2018 FIAT 124 Spider display at the Chicago Auto Show, we realized that this was an opportunity to focus on a very distinctive model. Many Chicago-area FIAT drivers were impressed with the 2018 FIAT 124 Spider, and here’s why we’re excited to highlight this model!

With its vaguely European styling and sleek interior, the 2018 FIAT 124 Spider is a two-seat roadster that integrates classic design with a very modern approach to driving. (It’s no surprise that trim levels for this FIAT car have classic names like Abarth, Classica, and Lusso, with a limited edition Red Top model coming later this year). Surprisingly light in weight by coming under 2,500 pounds, this FIAT model sports a turbocharged 1.4-liter 4-cylinder engine that generates 160 horsepower and up to 184 lb-ft of torque mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Combined with sleek design and lightweight engineering, the engine in the 2018 FIAT 124 Spider makes it a sporty vehicle capable of handling cruising down the streets of Dayton and the highways of Ohio.

Our FIAT dealership serving Dayton, OH also recommends the 2018 FIAT 124 Spider for its safety and standard features. Despite its classic styling, this model stands above other new FIAT cars for its integration of technology like Bluetooth ™ connectivity, keyless entry, and an optional Technology and SiriusXM ™ package. Although drivers may find that handling this model can potentially avoid crashes, the 2018 FIAT 124 Spider has great safety features which include a rearview camera, blind-spot monitoring, and airbags.
