FIAT 500 vs. MINI Cooper in Schaumburg, IL

2017 FIAT 500

The Italian-inspired FIAT 500 has been making waves in America for years now, known for its striking personality and compact body. Its zippy 101 standard horsepower allows you to cruise Chicagoland in unmistakable style, while getting an EPA estimated 31 miles per gallon in the city makes sure you save at the pump. The FIAT 500 Pop trim comes in just about as many color combinations as you can think of, keeping the compact car indisputably iconic and undeniably you. Though you've already got a parking advantage downtown in a FIAT 500, you can take your game to the next level with the available ParkSense Rear Park Assist System, which alerts you to the objects behind your vehicle, allowing you to double down on one of its most perfect perks.


2017 MINI Cooper Hardtop 2 Door

 Many smart Chicago shoppers also consider the MINI Cooper Hardtop 2 Door model alongside the FIAT 500. It's standard technology and comforts typically impress, and its standard maximum horsepower outruns the FIAT 500. Yet, that horsepower comes at the cost of less city MPG, and quite the higher starting sticker price. Additionally, the MINI Cooper's trunk capacity leaves less room than the FIAT 500, while its heavier curb weight could detract those looking for a nimbler new vehicle. In our humble opinion, the FIAT 500 edges out the MINI Cooper Hardtop 2 Door over the long haul.
