Not surprising that 2016 is shaping up to be one of the more exciting years in the automotive industry in recent memory. So, as we begin the New Year, here’s a look at the 20 most exciting 2016 makes and models of vehicles.
20. Abarth 124 Spider
This convertible Spider is manufactured by Fiat, and the European automaker is hoping its new take on the ultra-cool sports car will add some sex appeal to its brand. In an effort to replicate the success of other well-known convertibles such as the Porsche Boxster, Fiat’s Abarth 124 Spider follows on from the 695 Biposto, and represents the next step in the car maker’s effort to produce sports cars that high-end consumers covet. It is a far cry from the traditional tiny, fuel efficient Fiats that motorists have come to expect. Features of this car include a sleek body complete with mesh grill, large air vents, carbon fiber side skirts, multi-spoke alloy wheels, lowered suspension and twin exhausts. Under the hood, car aficionados will find a 1.4-liter turbo engine that produces 170 horsepower.
