Four FCA US vehicles highlighted in awards



2018 Fiat 124 Spider Lusso


For the second year in a row, the Fiat 124 Spider added another accolade to its web, the 2018 Best Buy award from Consumer Guide® Automotive.

The Fiat 124 Spider won the Sporty Performance Car category. According to the website, the editors describe the roadster as having unique retro styling.

The Fiat 124 Spider revives the storied nameplate, bringing its classic Italian styling and performance to a new generation. Paying homage to the original 124 Spider nearly 50 years after its introduction, the Fiat 124 Spider delivers the ultimate Italian roadster experience with driving excitement, technology, and safety combined with iconic design.

FCA US Brands Defend Their Titles

The 124 Spider is not the only FCA US vehicle that drove away as back-to-back winners: 


2018 Ram 1500 Limited Tungsten Edition

“The Dodge Durango earned the Best Buy award in the Large SUV segment for the sixth consecutive year and the Ram 1500 captured the Best Buy award for Large Pickup Trucks for the 10th straight year,” Tom Appel, publisher of Consumer Guide Automotive, said. “As for the Pacifica, it’s simply one of the most thoughtfully designed family vehicles we’ve ever evaluated. Likewise, the tradition-bound 124 Spider delivers a considerable dose of driving pleasure for a very reasonable price.” 

Consumer Guide Automotive editors analyze, compare and evaluate numerous vehicles by extensively testing all major models available in the United States. According to Consumer Guide Automotive, a vehicle does not become a Best Buy based solely on objective ratings; Best Buys also distinguish themselves as good values compared to other vehicles in their class.​​​​
