ATLANTA, July 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The smart fortwo is rolling into Miami this weekend to show city dwellers how to make their commute a 'smart' one. At Dadeland Mall on Saturday, July 23rd and Sunday July 24th from 10 a.m – 6 p.m., participants will be able to see firsthand how the smart fortwo can make their city life a little more livable.
This summer, a selection of smart fortwo coupes and cabrios will road trip across the U.S., stopping in a different city every weekend to allow residents to take the smart 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.
Participants can enjoy convertible life at the touch of a button – as the smart cabrio opens up from a closed two-seater into a large sliding canvas sunroof. If the canvas sunroof leaves participants asking for more, they can experience the full-fledged cabriolet with the soft top completely open. This new cabriolet allows drivers to fully experience the Florida sun and fresh air as they drive along the coast!
smart hopes to find a home in Miami as it shows off its unrivaled maneuverability, tech and safety features as well as endless customization options. With several different trim levels and more than 40 color combinations for the body and tridion cell to choose from, the personalized smart fortwo is sure to earn Miami residents a nod of approval as they cruise through the Wynwood Art District.
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 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 and the all-new smart cabrio starts at $18,900.
