124 Spider confirmed for NZ; But not as a Fiat

New Zealand is set to get the Fiat 124 spider – but without a Fiat badge on the front.

Fiat Chrysler New Zealand has confirmed that the only version of the Mazda MX5 based car to come to New Zealand will be the performance Abarth badged version – and it will be here in the fourth quarter this year.

The Abarth features a 1.4-litre turbocharged engine producing 127kW, and like the Mazda is lightLight – weighing in at just 1060 kg – combined with a near perfect 50/50 weight balance and a traditional rear wheel drive

New Zealand pricing along with full details and local specifications will be announced when the Abarth 124 Spider arrives in New Zealand at the end of the year.
