The standard 1.4L MultiAir® Turbo engine on the All-New Abarth 124 Spider is the most powerful four-cylinder engine in its class+. It is highly responsive, with twin intercoolers, 16 valves and a fresh-air induction system. It achieves peak power - 125 kW (170-HP) and 250 NM of torque - at much lower RPMs than any vehicle in its class+.
The All-New Abarth 124 Spider features a six-speed manual transmission with short-throw shifter. It optimizes clutch operation for responsive driving characteristics. The ergonomically positioned clutch pedal requires only a light amount of force, enabling precise control over the rate of acceleration. With steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, the available six-speed manual transmission delivers excellent performance, offering a more direct feeling in response to pedal operation.
The All-New Abarth 124 Spider features a Bilstein® Performance Suspension with a front strut tower brace for exceptional handling. Shock absorbers help deliver maximum grip. Stiff front and rear spring rates minimize body roll, and a rear stabilizer bar helps increase cornering grip. Nearly 50/50 weight distribution gives you the confidence of control and a smooth, balanced ride.
The Abarth 124 Spider offers an available braking system developed by Brembo. The Brembo system features four-piston monoblock aluminum calipers. Conventional systems typically have single-piston calipers on the front axle. Four-piston calipers ensure more uniform pressure on the brake pads, which improve braking effectiveness.
The signature red calipers of a Brembo braking system tell the world your roadster can stop as powerfully as it can go.
Wrapped in premium-grained leather, the sport steering wheel was ergonomically designed to emphasize the car's handling. The grip design makes hand-over-hand turning a smooth operation and allows you to maneuver confidently. The stitch design, thick surface and rim shape enhance the feel of the wheel. Integrated audio and speed controls are recessed to avoid interfering with steering maneuvers.
The sport mode selector enables a range of specifically calibrated performance-tuned modifications to the steering, throttle, transmission shift points and Electronic Stability Control+. Sport mode delivers optimal power to the drive wheels for world-class performance. The result is more spirited, sport-oriented dynamic handling characteristics.
The Abarth 124 Spider includes a mechanical Limited Slip Differential (LSD). On a roadster the LSD is especially effective in maintaining acceleration during cornering by distributing more power to the rear wheel that has the most traction. That translates to precise handling and superior control.
The Abarth 124 Spider Connect 7.0 includes a 7-inch full-color touchscreen display+ mounted on the top of the dashboard, an AM/FM/HD Radio™, a Multimedia Command Knob, two USB ports+ , Aha™ by HARMAN and Stitcher™.

Bluetooth Streaming Audio lets you listen to digital music sources.
The ParkView® Rear Back Up Camera+ helps make it easier to park the All-New Abarth 124 Spider. When the vehicle is shifted into reverse, ParkView displays a wide-angle view of the area behind the vehicle on the Abarth 124 Spider Connect 7.0 touchscreen. Gridlines on the touchscreen help indicate distance in tight spaces and make it simpler to park.
The Abarth 124 Spider Connect 7.0 offers available GPS Navigation to guide you to unfamiliar destinations. Voice recognition allows you to operate the navigation system hands-free. The available security alarm system+ protects your vehicle from theft by monitoring both the door- and trunk-ajar switches as well as the ignition circuit for unauthorized entry.
The interior of the All-New Abarth 124 Spider features a cockpit designed for performance. Heated premium leatherette and microfiber sport seats feature red accent stitching and are ergonomically designed to ensure a comfortable fit. Leather Alcantara Recaro seats are available. The sport steering wheel and sport shift knob are leather-wrapped. Matte gray accents enhance the sport instrument cluster.
The 17-inch aluminum wheels on the All-New Abarth 124 Spider are painted gunmetal to complement the gunmetal finish on the mirror caps, roll bar and windshield surround. These wheels are paired with 205/45VR17 three-season performance tires. Want more? Fog lamps, automatic headlamps and Class-Exclusive quad bright finish exhaust tips+ are all standard on the 124 Spider Abarth.
The available ParkSense® Rear Park Assist System+ helps you maneuver into tight parking spaces by detecting obstacles near the rear of the vehicle. System sensors determine distance to the object, while a graphic image of your vehicle and the distance to the object are displayed on the Abarth 124 Spider Connect 7.0 touchscreen+.
LED headlamps with washers are available on the Abarth 124 Spider. The headlamp washers spray windshield washer fluid on the headlamps to clean them of most debris. The nozzles are located directly below each headlamp on the front fascia.
