About smart fortwo

Charming, pint-sized and legitimately unique, the 2-seat Smart Fortwo is a city-dwelling car that isn't in the mainstream. The Smart Fortwo coupe was all-new last year, and the huge improvements make it the best Fortwo to date -- it's wider, with a new automatic transmission and a bevy of new standard features including Bluetooth and automatic climate control. The niche Fortwo isn't for everyone, as there's no rear seat and there are more practical options for the money, but those who want urban transport that stands out more than the larger Chevy Spark or Mitsubishi Mirage have another option. There's a Smart Cabrio on the new platform for 2017, as well as an Electric Drive coupe -- and an ED Cabrio is coming soon.

Fresh from its American debut last year, the smart fortwo sees little change for 2009. Daytime running lights are now available as an option, and a "loose cap" indicator light is added on the dash, alerting the driver when the gas cap hasn't been screwed on tightly enough. To increase storage space, expandable nets replace plastic bins on the side doors.

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"leased this Cabriolet because it is sharp looking, fun to drive, and different. I have only my wife as an occasional passenger and don't need a big klunker. Lease deal is great, so I can turn in with 36000 miles and still be on warranty. Averaging 39 MPG and have had no problems. Top works great even at 70 MPH. Get a weeks worth of groceries in rear or two carry on bags when going to airport. Love the automatic clutch manual. People who don't like the tranny are most likely trying to drive it in automatic which is not the best way. With the paddle shifters, I put it in the gear I want and have plenty of acceleration up to about 65 MPH. Above 75 mph get a lot of wind noise, but never drive on interstate for more that 10 miles at a time, so no problem. Fit and finish is excellent for a very low priced car. Love the radio with the flash drive in the glove box. Everything neat and out of the way."
