When you're looking for a sports car, it can be hard to know which vehicle makes sense. Especially when you're looking for a 2-seater vehicle, the differences become even closer. At Payne FIAT of the Rio Grande Valley, we know many of our clients can't decide between the FIAT 124 Spider and the Mazda MX-5 Miata, which is why we have created a guide to simplify your purchasing process. We recommend the FIAT 124 Spider, since it delivers similar performance and agility, while offering a lower price point and more relaxed drive. Contact our Weslaco, Texas FIAT dealership to schedule a test drive.

From 0 to 60 in 6.8 seconds, the FIAT 124 Spider is an impressive sports car. Promising power with 160 horsepower and delivering speed with up to 133 mph at top speed with a Turbocharged engine, you'll appreciate every twist and turn Weslaco roads have to offer. With standard touring suspension and upscaled interior designs, the FIAT 124 Spider delivers a relaxed drive and comfortable seats. Experience wind in your hair around McAllen, TX with the quick-folding convertible top. Or, experience the nimble handling on a weekend trip to Mission, TX. This timeless Italian-engineered sports car will excite even the most discerning drivers, so schedule a test drive today.

While the Mazda MX-5 Miata is a popular choice, it does cost more. With a lower horsepower and a lower limited warranty, the Mazda MX-5 Miata lacks some of the qualities the FIAT 124 Spider has to offer. At Payne Rio of the Rio Grande Valley, we recommend taking a test drive behind the wheel of the FIAT 124 Spider to see what this iconic roadster can offer.
