    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.

    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.

      It is no secret that Subaru is wanting to get back in the three-row crossover fight after the failure of the Tribeca. We got our first preview last year at the LA Auto Show with the Viziv-7 Concept and now we're getting some idea of what the production version will look like thanks to some spy shots.
      From all angles, the production version (possibly named Ascent) is heavily toned down from the Viziv-7 concept. The front end is reminiscent to the Outback with the large grille and smaller headlights. Around back, the Ascent loses the aggressive bumper design found on the concept but it looks like the design of the tailgate remains.
      It is expected that Subaru's upcoming crossover will use the new modular platform that underpins the Impreza. We still don't have any idea on what will power it, but it would be safe to assume a CVT and all-wheel drive will come standard.
      Subaru will reveal the Ascent sometime next year.

      As Opel and Vauxhall get ready to introduce the all-new Insignia Grand Sport and Sports Tourer for Geneva, a new set of spy shots reveals Opel is working on the next member of the Insignia family, the new Country Tourer.
      The mule seen in the photos obtained by Motor1 and The Truth About Cars reveal some noticeable changes from the standard Sports Tourer. First off, there are new bumpers and plastic body cladding to give it a more rugged look. It also appears the ride height has been raised, though how much is unknown at this time. All-wheel drive is expected, though there is talk about offering front-wheel drive to provide better fuel economy. As for power, expect some form of GM's 2.0L turbo-four. But The Truth About Cars says there is the possibility of a V6.
      Motor1 says Opel will be revealing the Insignia Country Tourer this fall at the Frankfurt Motor Show. There is, of course, the rumor of Buick getting a wagon variant of the Insignia, possibly this model and being named the Regal Tourx. Whether that comes to fruition or not remains to be seen.
