The Fiat 124 Spider Should Not Be Back

In a interview, Fiat’s CEO gave a hint that the end of the Mazda MX-5-based Fiat 124 Spider is near.

Since the 2017 model year, the Fiat division is building the 124 Spider, a Mazda MX-5 with a silhouette in the image of the Italian manufacturer and a Fiat turbocharged engine. However, it seems that this sporty roadster is no longer in the plans of the manufacturer of Turin, Italy.

That’s at least what Fiat CEO Olivier François said in an interview with British magazine Autocar. The Chief Executive Officer revealed that the manufacturer would henceforth focus on the development of small urban cars, in addition to expanding the 500 family. Large sedans and sports cars are no longer the priority for Fiat, which suggests a possible cancellation of the 124 Spider.

François even added that the 124 Spider was a profitable car for the manufacturer, but that it was not important for the future of Fiat. It should also be mentioned that the Italian roadster is not selling as well as its Hiroshima cousin, especially because of a higher price, but perhaps also because of this different powertrain.

The probable cancellation of the 124 Spider roadster is not surprising, given the fact that sports cars are increasingly difficult to sell in a market that mainly focuses on commercial vehicles. Nevertheless, Fiat’s big boss remains convinced that this partnership with Mazda was a great opportunity, even if the car is not a pure Fiat in every sense of the word.

We will see what Fiat has in store for its 124 Spider roadster in a few years.
