    Spying: Fiat 124 Spider W/O Camouflage


    • The Upcoming Fiat Spider Has Been Caught Uncovered

    The times we have seen the upcoming Fiat 124 Spider in spy photos, they have been under many layers of camouflage. But a new set of shots have come in, showing off the new spider completely uncovered.

     

    Now as we have previously reported, the Fiat 124 Spider is based on the new Mazda Miata and you can see some it in the 124 Spider's overall profile. Fiat has made some changes to make it their own with longer and squarer front end. The back is also square-ish and slightly taller than the Miata. The interior is mostly Miata, aside from the Fiat steering wheel.

     

    Powertrains for the 124 Spider are expected to a be a turbocharged 1.4L four-cylinder with 180 horsepower and a 1.75L turbo four-cylinder with 240 horsepower for the Abarth.

     

    We're expecting to see the Fiat 124 Spider at the LA Auto Show in November, with sales beginning sometime next year.

    Not sure why, I am usually always a fan of auto's even little sports cars but this just is ugly to me and not very inspiring.

    Funny how Sergio is doing all the things anti to saving FCA.

    While he should be investing in his best bet for high volume he invest in Alfa and a two seat car for Fiat?

    Not the way to increase volume and use up excess production facilities that are way under volume.

    So now we have the 500, the 500L, the 500X (my favorite) and the 124 Spider.  Hopefully some showroom traffic will develop.

    I fearlessly predict that Sergio's not too worried right now. He's probably booking a flight to Wolfsburg as we speak.

    Operation Eiche...but in reverse?

     

    I like that 1970s Fiat 124 that is pictured...the modern Miata based 124...the jury is still out in that one...

    I dunno, but looks-wise I was expecting a lot more. Maybe it's just the camera angles? But they may still make a strong case for the car if they put in the hotter engines.

      Whenever a new set of spy shots come out, the photographer tends to have an idea of the vehicle in question. But that isn't the case with this set of spy shots.
      The vehicle in question is a Chevrolet Crossover that was driving nearby General Motors' headquarters. But no one can seem to agree if this is the next-generation Traverse or the rumored crossover that would sit between the Equinox and Traverse. Motor1 believes it's latter since it is about the same size and shape as the downsized GMC Acadia. This new model could be wearing the Blazer nameplate.
      No matter which model this turns out to be, we can be sure the front end will feature a similar design to the Equinox - large split grille and angular headlights. The taillights are long and horizontal, again taking a cue from the Equinox.
      This new model will use the C1XX platform that currently underpins the Cadillac XT5 and GMC Acadia. Power is expected to come from an updated 3.6L V6 paired with a nine-speed automatic.

      It has been a long time coming. But we knew sooner or later, we would get our first glimpse at the upcoming Opel/Vauxhall Insignia (also Buick Regal and Holden Commodore) minus the camo. That day has finally arrived as the Insignia sedan and Sport Tourer have been caught uncovered. 
      The front end reminds us a lot of the current Mazda6 - a flat nose with a pentagonal grille and slim headlights. Along the side, there has been some sculpting along the lower part of the doors that add some sharpness. The back end features similar styling to the Buick LaCrosse with a similarly shaped trunklid and taillights that extend into the rear fenders. The Sport Tourer features a more distinctive character line and a steeply raked rear tailgate.
      Both models are the top-line OPC trim which means a number of sporty touches to the exterior, 20-inch wheels, large Brembo brakes, small spoiler, and dual exhaust tips.
      The second-generation Insignia is 2.1 inches longer and rides on a wheelbase that has been stretched 3.6 inches. This should help one of the key issues of the current Insignia and its brethren, a tight back seat. The new Insignia has also been lowered by 1.1 inches to give it a sportier stance.
      Motor1 reports that Opel and Vauxhall will reveal the next-generation Insignia later this month online, followed by a debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March. The Sports Tourer expected a few months later.
