The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.6
6.3
TCC’s Bottom Line
The Fiat 124 Spider takes the best from the Mazda MX-5 Miata, namely its agile handling and comfortable ride, while adding turbocharged power and Italian flavor. It’s truly a driver's car. The 2018 Subaru BRZ is a lightweight prizefighter that punches out of its class in handling, but not power.
