Fiat 500 2015 Lounge price 15800 or smart fortwo 2015 price 14480

Need a small car for me and my dog. I checked shared deals from other people in autopriceshare.com and got two quotes.

1. Smart fortwo 2015 Coupe Passion price 14480
2. Fiat 500 2015 Lounge price 15800

I am lazy and just want to pick up one to test drive... Could anyone tell me some advantages or disadvantages of each one? Thanks in advance.

More room for the dog in a 500
500 seats 4 if necessary (fortwo only has two seats and sod all boot)
Dog can go in the back of a 500 (fortwo doesn't have a back)

I had a courtesy 500 once and my springer spaniel did not fit in the boot without putting the back seats down

So where would it go in a fortwo? They are smaller.

Smart doesn't even have room for a spare...

Had a 13 plate convertible smart! Traded it in for a 500! The 500 was light years ahead! Not looked at the new smart!

Most cars don't have a spare these days anyway, so little issue there

You should be looking at the new Twingo not ForTwo.

Granted, many cars do not have spares now, that was more of a comment of the lack of space in the Smart.

Don't go shopping for frozen stuff in a twingo because the engine heat will melt it before you get home. Less boot space than a fortwo aswell.

Ah yes, I'd forgot that the new Smart's were in partnership with the French

I keep thinking of the old ones
