ATLANTA, Sept. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The smart fortwo is rolling into Chicago this weekend to give residents a few 'smart' options for their city driving needs. At Navy Pier on Friday, September 30th and Saturday, October 1st from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., Chicago residents can take the smart fortwo for a spin on the final Roadshow tour stop.
This summer, a selection of smart fortwo coupes and cabrios have been road tripping across the U.S., stopping in a different city every weekend where participants who test drive a smart fortwo earn a complimentary $20 gift card.
The smart fortwo can adapt to any and all weather conditions Chicago has to offer. Ready to take on the Windy City, the smart fortwo is standard equipped with Crosswind Assist, which helps keep the vehicle in its lane in windy weather conditions. With available heated seats, the smart fortwo is set for the first cold front of the season.
The all-new smart fortwo 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. Additionally, the optional proximity warning function warns the driver of potential collisions.
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 and the all-new smart cabrio starts at $18,900.
