    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.

      Cadillac is going to have a quiet 2017, but 2018 looks to be a blockbuster year as the first of their needed crossovers will launch - the compact XT3. Thanks to a spy photographer, we have gotten our first look at it.
      General Motors' camouflage department did a really good job of covering up the XT3, so we can't really tell much about the design except that it looks like an even smaller XT5. One detail they weren't able to cover up is the intercooler, leading us to believe that the XT3 will come with turbocharged power - most likely the 2.0L turbo. A nine-speed automatic and the choice of front or all-wheel drive is likely. Platform-wise, expect the XT3 to use the underpinnings of the Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain.

      The current Ford Focus has been with us since 2012 and it is getting somewhat long in the tooth when compared with the likes of the Chevrolet Cruze, Honda Civic, and refreshed Mazda3. But Ford is on the case as we have gotten our first look at the next-generation Focus caught by a spy photographer.
      It looks like Ford is planning to do some evolutionary changes in terms of the Focus' exterior to keep it in line with other Ford models. The interior looks to be taking some ideas from the new Fiesta and refreshed EcoSport with a similar center stack design. Reports say Ford will go with an all turbocharged engine lineup with the 1.0L three-cylinder EcoBoost being the base engine. ST and RS variants are expected down the road.
      We expect to see the next-generation Focus sometime next year.
