ATLANTA, July 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The smart fortwo is rolling into Atlanta this weekend to show city dwellers how to make their commute a 'smart' one. At Lenox Mall on Saturday, July 9th and Sunday July 10th from 10 a.m – 6 p.m., participants will have the chance to experience how the smart fortwo can help them defeat Atlanta traffic once and for all.
This summer, a selection of smart fortwo coupes will road trip across the U.S., stopping in a different city every weekend to allow residents to take the fortwo coupe for a spin. Test drives will take place in well-known city shopping malls or other high-traffic urban locations, where drivers who complete the test drive will earn a complimentary $20 gift card.
Home to the smart U.S. headquarters, Atlanta has a special place in the smart fortwo's heart—better known as a 3-cylinder turbocharged engine. Since smart USA and Mercedes-Benz, USA relocated to Atlanta in 2015, smart has expertly navigated up and down Peachtree and all roads in between, ensuring it is the perfect city car for Atlanta drivers.
The smart fortwo offers an extensive suite of driver assistance systems including forward collision warning to help prevent rear-end collisions, Crosswind Assist to keep the vehicle in its lane in poor weather conditions and Lane Keeping Assist to better navigate traffic jams in city streets.
The all-new smart fortwo coupe was redesigned from the ground up to provide ultimate urban mobility and self-expression. With a length of just 8.8 feet and a turning circle of 22.8 feet, the smart fortwo sets new benchmarks in maneuverability—perfect for urban driving.
For increased comfort and convenience, the smart fortwo includes the exclusive cross connect app, standard Bluetooth audio streaming and hands-free calling, a multifunction steering wheel, cruise control, automatic climate control and 3.5" color display and alarm.
As an extension of the Mercedes-Benz product portfolio, the smart fortwo offers personalization, convenience, safety, efficiency and affordability—the 2016 smart fortwo coupe starts at $14,650.
