Safety

3.5 out of 5 3.5

While the Fiat 124 Spider hasn’t been crash-tested by Euro NCAP, the Mazda MX-5 on which it is based scored four stars. This doesn’t sound overwhelming but it was the best roadster tested in 2015.

You get lots of active and passive tech including a voice-controlled entertainment system, LED rear lights, four airbags, a speed limiter, and ESC with ABS and EBD – all as standard.

Interior & boot space

3.3 out of 5 3.3

If you want bags of interior space and boot capacity then you may be disappointed by the Fiat 124 Spider, but by sports car standards it’s actually pretty good.

There’s a 140-litre boot which is big enough for a couple of weekend bags.

Taller occupants may struggle – the driver will find it hard to get comfortable and the passenger might find the top of their head in the airstream whistling across the top of the car.

How does the boot space compare?

Check the table below to see how the Fiat 124 Spider compares to other similar cars in terms of available boot space.
