Fiat 124 Spider Bossing Around Mazda MX-5, Toyota GT86

By  | 

When we speak of affordable sports cars, the first name that often comes to mind is the Mazda MX-5 Miata. The roadster ticks every box for being a great affordable sports car and this explains why the MX-5 has survived the test of time to become a popular choice among consumers.

The MX-5 is simply a commendable achievement for Mazda but to call it the best choice in the market right now may not be right at all. This title belongs to the Fiat 124 Spider and we have a video that will explain why.

The 124 Spider is not as popular as the MX-5 and despite being based on the vehicle from Mazda, it can produce greater performance. Car&Driver has proved this when they placed the Fiat 124 Spider on the Lightning Lap challenge and it saw the car finishing with a faster time than the MX-5 Club.

To make it extra interesting, the gap between the MX-5 Club and the 124 Spider is a full 4 seconds. It is also worth noting that the 124 Spider has beaten the Toyota GT86 and Subaru BRZ by a similar margin.
