Information from our sources on the 2020 Fiat 124 Spider has begun to trickle in, and preliminary news shows the 2020 Spider will be much like the 2019 model, and available in three versions – Classica, Lusso, and Abarth. Changes for 2020 include a new Technology Plus II option package for Classica models and the elimination of the Magnetico Bronze Metallic color.

Mechanical The document we've seen on the 2020 Fiat Spider lists the veteran 1.4L MultiAir Turbo engine as the sole engine choice.

We have been given the word there will be a Fiat 124 Spider Urbana edition arriving during the 2019 model year. The 124 Spider Urbana edition features blacked-out exterior trim, new alloy wheels, and special interior trim. Urbana is Italian for Urban, and the Urbana trim gives the cars a sporty urban, sophisticated look. European Fiat 124 Spider with S-Design package gives clues to what the US Urbana looks like. Note the European car uses what is called "burnished" or "polished" steel color for its trim. We get gloss black trim according to the preliminary information provided. The picture of the Spider Urbana I have seen does not have a stripe and comes with different wheels.
