June Fiat News Recap

The Fiat 500 was ranked number one in Total Quality in the prestigious Strategic Vision's Total Quality Awards program. This is the third time the Fiat 500 has earned the top award in its class. Fiat also tied with Kia for the title of industry’s best brand for total quality under $26,000.


Abarth 124 Spider


Fiat500USA.com broke the news that the engine output ratings for the new 124 Spider have been revised. Preliminary engine specs incorrectly showed the 124 Spider and 124 Abarth producing its peak torque at the wrong rpm., possibly giving the false impression that there isn't a difference between the two models. We have the revised figures here:


The Fiat 124 Spider forum is abuzz with excitement as the new Spider made news all month:


Alfa Romeo Giulia
