Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

There’s sufficient space for most adults in the 124 Spider, although some may find the non-height adjustable driver’s seat to be mounted too high. That means we’d definitely recommend trying one with the roof up before buying, though; some of our testers can’t fit without having the top down. Leg room isn’t an issue but the narrow interior does push you close to your passenger making it feel claustrophobic with the roof up.

What you do get is a pair of flimsy, movable cupholders, one of which can be fitted next to the passenger’s right leg. Alternatively, both can be mounted on the transmission tunnel, in prime position to be knocked by your elbow.
