Fiat 500 vs MINI Cooper Columbus IN

Fiat 500 vs MINI Cooper Indianapolis IN (1)

Ray Skillman FIAT South

Drive With European Flair

There’s no doubt that the Fiat 500 and the MINI Cooper are both chic cars that will get you from point to point B while being the envy of drivers all around, but what sets the Fiat 500 apart from the MINI Cooper? The Fiat 500 is priced right, so for less than $15,000 you can be the proud owner of the classic Italian styled car, while the MINI Cooper 2 Door Hardtop starts at over $21,000. Ray Skillman Fiat South has plenty of Fiat 500 models in stock, so you can start seeing the difference and have the Italian driving experience right at home in Indiana.

More Tech Options

Both European vehicles boost the latest technology, but the Fiat 500’s Uconnect System outshines the MINI Cooper’s touchscreen system. The Fiat’s Uconnect System lets you have it your way when it comes to your favorite SiriusXM Radio stations. It also makes going hands-free a breeze. You can connect your smartphone and let your voice do all the commanding. So when you need to text your friend that you’re 10 minutes away, but really you’re running 20 minutes away, you can tell your Fiat to “Text Jane I am running late” and your Uconnect will do as you say. Oh, and if you’re meeting Jane at a new restaurant, the Uconnect’s navigation system will help get you there without getting you lost. Super simple, right? The MINI Cooper’s touch screen is a great system, but it just doesn’t have the music or navigation like the Fiat 500’s Uconnect system.

Customized for You

Sharp, chic, fresh and fine are all words that can easily describe the Fiat 500 or the MINI Cooper, but the Fiat 500 gives you more ways to customize your ride and make it stand out as a one of a kind vehicle. Have you ever heard of a car that’s available in 15 different colors? Well, the Fiat 500 is here to help you find you, but in car form. You might be a bright and bold Laser Blu or a more earthy, natural, Latte Menta (mint green). The Fiat 500 is yours for the choosing and you won’t be limited to four colors as available with the MINI Cooper Classic. With the Fiat 500, you also have nine fabric and color combinations to choose from, so you’re sure to find the right look for your Fiat’s seats that feel so you.

Fiat First

The Fiat 500 and the MINI Cooper are both top-notch, European vehicles that will make a statement in your life, but the Fiat 500 gives you more for less of your hard-earned money. Stop by Ray Skillman Fiat South, pick out your Fiat 500 and start driving in style, today.

The dealer was very responsive and helpful. The service was always prompt and so cheerful. My salesperson Sean worked tirelessly to help me order my car from another state, putting in the extra effort and time even on restricted hours during the corona pandemic. I cannot thank them enough, and it was the best experience. After wanting a mustang since a very young age, I finally got my dream car.
