The number of two-seat roadsters on the market continues to shrink, so some of the Fiat 124 Spider’s rivals are hardtops.
Nissan’s 370Z is available as a coupe or roadster, but it's much more powerful, as well as bigger, heavier, more expensive, and getting long in the tooth.
The Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ siblings can be thought of as coupe versions of the 124 and Miata.
They offer similar power and dynamics, but lack the open air feel.
The 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata provides the platform for the 124 Spider.
It offers unique looks, an RF model with a retractable hardtop, and more immediate power but less-premium interior materials.
