2015 FIAT 500 vs  Smart ForTwo near Grand Rapids, MI

The smartly styled 2015 Fiat 500 is no off-roader, but it might be the most useful vehicle from the brand yet. Although the ability to park the 2015 Smart Fortwo almost anywhere is a major plus for city dwellers, its unrefined driving characteristics and questionable value proposition make it hard to recommend. The Fortwo Electric Drive is better, but it still trails other available electric vehicles.

2015 FIAT 500 Power & Handling

The FIAT 500 has a bolder, more aggressive style. This vehicle features improved aerodynamics, enhanced side skirts and a pronounced front fascia to accommodate the 1.4L MultiAir Turbo engine. With a spirited 135 horsepower, 150 lb-ft of torque and up to 34 highway mpg, the FIAT 500 is for the driver who loves the FIAT 500 Sport look, but demands a little more power and performance.

Smart ForTwo Power & Handling

The 2015 Smart Fortwo Pure and Passion models are powered by a rear-mounted 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine that produces 70 horsepower and 68 pound-feet of torque. Power flows to the rear wheels by way of a five-speed automated-manual transmission. The  Fortwo Pure is quite basic inside -- power windows and even a radio are options.

2015 FIAT 500 Features & Design

The FIAT 500 features 16-inch aluminum alloy wheels for more performance-designed enhancements with Nero painted pockets and red brake calipers, or opt for the available 16-inch hyper-black aluminum wheels. Inside you can find the true nature of the FIAT 500. Sport-styled bucket seats with Argento accent stitching on both the sport cloth or available heated leather trim provide substance and support.

Smart ForTwo Features & Design

The 2015 Smart Fortwo is offered in both coupe and convertible (a.k.a. Cabriolet) body styles. Coupes are available in entry-level Pure and better-equipped Passion trim levels. The convertible, which features a powered soft top with a sunroof-like front section that can be opened independently, is only offered in the Passion trim. The Fortwo Electric Drive is also available in coupe and convertible body styles in a single trim level.

Conclusions

The FIAT 500 is truly a stand out, offering customers a perfect combination of power, innovation, and character. Boasting tons of cargo space and a uniquely Italian style, the 500 is an easy standout in competition with the Chevrolet Trax. From behind the steering wheel, the 2015 Smart Fortwo is a bit of a mixed bag. With a size that makes even pint-sized cars like the Mini Cooper seem large and a tight turning circle, the Smart lets you move through snarled traffic and snag partial parking spots in a way that's sure to make many of the drivers around you envious.
