I wish they had done something with the Fiat Connect. Like providing for Apple Car Play and Android Auto.

So not much has changed! The description sounds identical to the 2017 with the exception of the 3 new exterior colors. Cheers

Guys don't expect much changes in the 2018 except in pricing, maybe 2019 will see some little changes. Normally changes are done every 2 years.

Personally, I'm glad there aren't big mechanical changes or changes in design so soon.

Color additions are welcome and I'd love to see that new red top on the road.

I purchased my car because I loved the design and the powertrain was enough for me.

I don't mind choices coming, but let's not let this be a "well we needed to make it better (fix)" something
drastic next year. Of all the issues I've read about on this forum (thermostat, alarm) those may warrant
a brand new updated part, but they're still relatively minor.

True enough, one of things that drew me to the 124, beside its sexy looks, is it being built on a tried and true chassis and power plant, both of which are fairly easy and inexpensive to modify.

One reason I was really trying hard to get a 2017 model was the removal of Grigio Argento which seems to be a little darker than the new Chiaro. Phew, barely got a hold of one after much work! Red Top is nice!!!!

The local dealer had no idea what I was talking about when I asked about the Red Top edition. He was aware of the new blue color but not the other two new colors...... dah!!!!

What do you think the exterior color paint color is on the Red Top? It seems to have matching interior leather of the same color.

It's the new light grey called grigio chiaro. It's the same color of the current ND Miata Ceramic grey. Very close to white. This color is better in person than picture. But still prefer current (2017) Grigio argento aluminium. More classic :)

I was at a dealership yesterday ready and good a good look at a sample piece painted Grigio Chiaro, it is NOT the same or even close to the Miata Ceramic Grey.
Grigio Chiaro i saw was a very light and bright pure silver color, not what I was hoping for.

From what I've seen, all the "new" colors are Mazda paint codes. The Puro Bianca Perla is Snowlake. White Tri-coat for sure. If you want to see the Mazda equivalents, check out the Mazda website.
