Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 42 - 44 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

An efficient turbocharged petrol engine and lightweight body mean the Fiat 124 Spider performs well in terms of running costs.

Fiat promises 44.1mpg from the 124 – not enough to trouble a diesel motorway cruiser, but still respectable in the sports car world.

Despite its sporty nature the lightweight Fiat 124 performs quite well in terms of its environmental impact.

As such you can expect 148g/km of CO2 from the 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol.

We’d expect the Mazda parts to be stereotypically bulletproof – it has been fettling the MX-5’s design for nearly 30 years now.

Fiat also uses this engine in a number of different applications so we’d expect it to be a pretty solid thing, with many years of trouble-free enjoyment.
