Tiny Size; Powerful Appeal

Everyone seems to be downsizing these days - from the size of homes to computers to cars. And in the battle between 2 of the smallest vehicles on the road - the 2017 FIAT 500 and the 2017 Smart Fortwo, there's only 1 that stands out. The new 500 starts at an affordable $14,995 and is 2.8-feet longer than the new Fortwo. This allows drivers in Athens, Chattanooga and Sparta, TN, and customers in Ringgold, GA to transport more than 1 passenger.

But there's more. A lot more. When it comes to everything drivers want - cargo capacity, performance and technology - the 2017 Fortwo simply doesn't measure up to the new 500.

Visit Crown FIAT of Chattanooga today and test drive the 2017 500 near Ringgold, GA and see for yourself why the new 500 is miles ahead of the competition.

More Power than the Fortwo

The 2017 500 features a standard 1.4-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 101 horsepower. The Smart Fortwo? It only comes with a 3-cylinder engine and 89 horsepower. That's only 66 more horses than some riding mowers!

For drivers who want more power, they can get it in the new 500 top trim, Abarth. In the Abarth, drivers will get a 160-horsepower turbocharged engine. The Abarth, which starts at $19,995, is even less costly than the new Fortwo proxy that features the same, weak 89-horsepower engine.

More Room for Fun

Stuffing anything larger than a few grocery bags or an overnight bag or two will be a challenge inside the 2017 Fortwo's 9.2 cubic feet of cargo space. That 9.2 cubic feet of space is slightly less than what the 2017 500 offers behind the rear seat. Fold the new 500's rear seat down and drivers in Athens, Sparta and Ringgold will get 30.2 cubic feet of space - more than 3 times the space as the new Fortwo.

Eye-Catching & Safe Interior

Inside the 2017 500, drivers will find many of the same things they'd expect in any compact car, but with 2 big exceptions - a huge sunroof and plenty of eye-catching Italian style. These are perks typically found in vehicles priced thousands of dollars above the new 500's asking price. Drivers will also have the chance to select 1 of 9 interior color combinations.

With its multi-colored and playful dash, just sitting in the 2017 500 feels like a flashback to the 1950s when FIAT first introduced the 500 on the world stage. But unlike those first models, the new 500 features all the modern tech most drivers desire.

Available interior features include:

  • 7-inch Customizable Driver Information Digital Cluster Display
  • Uconnect 5.0 with Bluetooth® Streaming Audio & Hands-Free Calling
  • USB Port
  • Automatic Temperature Control
  • 6-speaker Beats Premium Sound
  • Satellite Radio

In the 2017 Fortwo, drivers will be hamstrung by the lack of tech features. In the new Fortwo, drivers will get an AM/FM radio, Bluetooth®, a USB and auxiliary audio inputs.

The 2017 FIAT 500 offers more room, power, head-turning style and tech features than the 2017 Smart Fortwo. The 2017 500 near Sparta is now available for lease or purchase. Stop into Crown FIAT of Chattanooga and take one on a test drive today.
