Fiat vs Smart Car

Fiat vs Smart Car

Ray Skillman FIAT South

Efficiency Never Looked So Cool

When it comes to finding the right commuter car, both the Smart Car and the Fiat 500 are great for getting around town and getting into the tightest parking spaces. When it comes to considerations such as acceleration, driving range, and interior space, there are important differences. Test-drive a Fiat at Ray Skillman Fiat South today and see why the 500 is the better option for your commute—and beyond.

That Retro Charm

Both the Smart Car and the Fiat 500 have distinctive exteriors and easy-to-read instrument panels inside, but let’s face it: the Fiat has head-turning pizzazz. Its retro-icon design makes it look at home zipping around bustling city streets or parked along the shoreline. The interior combines modern technology and retro styling. If you’re looking for a car that’s eye-catching in all the right ways, the Fiat is the winner here.

Say “Ciao!” to Range Anxiety

The Smart Fortwo is now only available as a plug-in electric vehicle and has a combined rating of 108 MPGE. However, with a range of just 58 miles, longer commutes, running errands, and weekend trips require some planning, to be sure you’ll be able to keep your battery topped off.

Rated at 28 MPG city/ 33 MPG highway, the Fiat 500 can go up to 346 miles between fill-ups. Take the worry out of your daily commute and have plenty left in the tank to follow your passion on the weekends.

Get Up to Speed

When you’re trying to merge into highway traffic on your commute, you want your car to perform like it’s already had its first espresso of the day. Smart offers 80 horsepower with 118 foot-pounds of torque that will take you from 0-60 MPH in 11.5 seconds. But the Fiat 500 makes that freeway merge a little less nail-biting: 150 foot-pounds of torque and 135 horsepower in the 1.4L engine gets you up to freeway speed in about eight seconds.

Size Matters

Maybe you’re not buying a micro-compact car to run a carpool, but with the Fiat 500, you can take the squad out for a night on the town. As the name implies, the Smart Fortwo seats two passengers and 9.2 cubic feet of cargo space, which may make weekly grocery trips a bit of a squeeze. The Fiat 500 has 9.5 cubic feet of cargo room in the trunk: when you need more room, fold the 50/50 rear seats and you more than triple the cargo space at 30.1 cubic feet.

The Better Option

Both the Smart Car and the Fiat 500 are good energy-conscious cars with similar features: however, for the money, you have more flexibility with a Fiat. With several sizes and trims in our showroom, we’re sure to have the right fit for your life, your style, and your budget. Find your new Fiat today at Ray Skillman Fiat South.

Our experience with Ray Skillman Hyundai was superb. We are already a family of Hyundai owners, so we knew we would probably be purchasing another one. The staff here were great and made sure we were taken care of throughout the whole process. We were not done in one day and took a few days to test drive, think on it, and then finalize. Throughout this time, we never felt pressured by the staff to hurry up and make a decision or finalize the purchase. Any follow-up was very thoughtful and felt as if they just wanted to make sure ...

The team at Ray Skillman Hyundai made trading in my 2012 Tuscan for a 2020 Santa Fe easy and painless. I have NEVER had a brand new car! I didn't think I could afford it. I'm so excited to be driving around town in my brand new car!

What a wonderful experience! Both the sales person and finance officer were simply wonderful. It was good to see customer service alive and well! They took the time to evaluate my lifestyle and needs before matching me with a vehicle. Their years of experience were evident. I was never pressured at all. I strongly recommend Ray Skillman if you are even remotely interested in buying a vehicle. I wish I could give both of those gentlemen a bonus!
