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 cars available for the money, but those who want urban transport that stands out more than the larger Chevrolet Spark or Mitsubishi Mirage have this as an option. There's also a Smart Cabrio on the new platform for 2017, as well as an Electric Drive (ED) coupe and Cabrio.

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.

"I love my Smart Car! It is the 2014 Bo Concept with high interior zippy, handles on a dime, I feel as safe in this as I do in my truck. With the 6 airbags and the Tridion steel safety shell is a hemispherical steel cage that encloses the interior of the car The IIHS gave the Fortwo top ratings in protecting passengers in front and side crashes. It is safer/as than many high end luxury Japanese/or US made with Chinese-India-wherever parts from the USA. Mileage is OK at 37+ mpg Premium = about 300 miles 8+ gallon fill up. I have driven my Smart to 97 mph in the US and while in Germany in 2014, I drove a relatives old American car all over Germany Autobahn, occasionally at almost 150 kph/93 mph and had a smart car pass me. I was impressed at the German dealership. Bought my new 2014 Bo Concept Smart fortwo with its interior by Dansk, its total Luxury."

"I have driven this car for about 8000 miles since I bought it a year ago. Unlike any small Japanese cars, it feels very solid and fun to drive. I never had any problems and enjoy it every day."

"As soon as one realizes this is a micro car and not a mini size, it can be readily accepted as a daily driver with limitation, Its a fun to drive car although its quirky semi-automatic transmission can be challenging at times. Its great for a student or elderly retiree who just want to get from A to B in comfort. My 2008 has almost 70,000 miles on it and it has been pretty economical to run at about 37 mpg around town. Highway driving wont help the mileage more because because the aerodynamics are similar to a brick.. The limited rear space has never been an issue when we filled it with many grocery bags. . Being part of Mercedes, the parts may be expensive-- yet what isnt today. Its a fun car to drive and Ive never held up someone else on acceleration. Yes the ride can be bumpy because of the short wheelbase-- yet what other car is only 8ft 8inches long. Oh yes, its easier to get in and out of than many larger vehicles and its top speed will hit 90mph. Mileage will drop at this speed yet who drives this fast although it was designed to drive on the Autobahn."
