The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.6
6.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
Like its Mazda MX-5 Miata doppelganger, the Fiat 124 Spider is a pure driver's car, with a comfortable ride and extrasensory handling. The 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata offers back-to-basics sports car fun in the classic roadster or the new RF body styles.
