These two roadsters are built on the same bones, but they are decidedly different.
The Fiat 124 Spider was just unveiled at the 2015 L.A. Auto Show, and although it is built on the same platform as the Mazda MX-5 Miata, it uses a different engine. So, if you ever thought the Miata was too slow, its Fiat cousin offers a 1.4-liter turbo four-cylinder engine packing 160 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. The Miata is powered by a 2.0-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder with 155 hp and 148 lb-ft.
And then there’s the question of reliability and which one looks better. Which roadster would you rather have? Answer our poll below.
