New Fiat 124 Spider Urbana Edition Gets A Nicely Done Blacked-Out Package

Fiat will unveil the 124 Spider Urbana Edition package at the 2019 NY Auto Show next week, just in time for “convertible season”. It’s essentially what you’d call a blackout appearance package and it costs $995 on top of a 124 Spider Classica spec model, which retails for $25,190.

With the Urbana Edition, Fiat 124 Spider customers gain Piano Black-painted exterior elements and Matte Gray interior accents, creating an overall sportier appearance, according to the Italian automaker.

“With the most powerful four-cylinder turbo engine in its class, our Italian-designed Fiat 124 Spider offers an authentic top-down roadster experience with fun-to-drive dynamics,” said FCA North America exec, Steve Beahm. “The new Urbana Edition offers a head-turning, custom appearance for the Fiat 124 Spider.”

Buyers also gain Black Diamond 17-inch alloy wheels with performance tires, dual bright exhaust tips, front fog lights, plus a Gloss Black finish on the front pillar bar bezel, seat-back pillar and mirror caps. Inside, you have the previously-mentioned Matte Grey accents, but also Urbana leather/microfiber seats and a wrapped instrument cluster hood and instrument panel.

As for performance, that remains unchanged with the roadster featuring a 1.4-liter MultiAir Turbo four-cylinder engine as standard, shooting 160 HP (162 PS) and 184 lb-ft (250 Nm) of torque towards the rear wheels. Buyers can opt for both a six-speed manual gearbox as well as a six-speed automatic.

The Urbana Edition package is now available in FIAT studios across North America, upping the 124 Spider Classica’s MSRP to just over 26,000.

 

  • Steve Cohn

    I’d rather have this over a Miata – looks more European.

  • XtremWize

    The Fiat 124 Spider looks way better than its ugly brother from Mazda.

  • THIS LOOKS SO MUCH MORE GROWN UP THAN THE MIATA.

  • Six_Tymes

    This looks fantastic, so much better than the miata, I just wish it had the power specs of the 2019 miata

  • I’ve always thought that the 124 looked worse than the Miata, but Fiat has done a nice job with this new trim level.
