Model Highlights

The Smart fortwo is available in three different trims: Pure coupe, Passion coupe and Passion cabriolet. Each comes with a 1.0L, 3-cylinder engine that makes 70 hp and 68 lb-ft of torque. It may not seem like much, but with its small body and a curb weight of less than 1,900 lb, it hardly matters. The plug-in fortwo Electric Drive model, offered in either coupe or cabriolet body style is powered by an electric magneto motor rated at 74 hp and 90 ft-lb of torque.

To ease driver concerns of the tiny car's safety, Smart developed its "Tridion Safety Cell," which provides the underlying structure that gives the fortwo its egg-like shape. The curves of the cell are remarkably strong, providing a "shell" around the passengers in the event of a crash. The fortwo also features a cabin full of airbags, as well as an impressive array of safety systems: electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes, cornering brake control, electronic brake assist, skid and torque control and hill-start assist.

The base level of the fortwo, called the Pure, is a bit spartan, but it does feature a leather steering wheel and shifter, keyless entry, power locks, flat-folding passenger seat and one windshield wiper (which is all it needs). Options include cruise control, fog lamps, heated seats, air conditioning, AM/FM/CD sound system and alloy wheels.

The Passion coupe adds a panorama roof, alloy wheels, standard air conditioning and stereo, plus paddle shifters, power windows and electric, heated mirrors. The Comfort Package provides electric-assist power steering, heated leather seats and fog lamps. The Passion cabriolet is similarly set up, but features a soft top with heated rear glass window and an upgraded MP3-ready stereo. LED running lamps, a navigation system, audiophile stereo system with Bluetooth and 6.5-inch touchscreen and iPod input as well as satellite radio are among the options available.

The Passion Cabriolet's targa-like convertible roof is noteworthy for being adjustable at any speed to any position, unlike most cars' convertible roofs, which can only be adjusted at low speeds. The side roof bars can be removed and stowed in the tailgate, for a full wind-in-the-face experience.

The fortwo Electric Drive comes with a 17.6 kWh battery pack capable of up to 74 hp. This combined with the single-speed transmission, allows the Electric fortwo to accelerate faster to 60 mph than the gasoline-powered fortwo. The EPA rates the Electric fortwo for 68 miles of cruising range, which the urban commuter the ideal buyer.

Value Writeup

For city commuters who often contend with tight parking spaces and high fuel costs, the Smart fortwo is here to solve both problems. The Smart's small size means it parks like a dream in almost any space. According to the EPA, the Smart is rated at 34 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway, for a combined 36 mpg, making it quite efficient. With a starting price of $13,270, the fortwo has a very appealing price of entry. The fortwo electric, starting at $25,000, is one of the least-expensive all-electric vehicles available in the US, and offers performance that may even best that of the gas-powered Smart.

Note Regarding Driver Rating:

Male: Average sized adult male dummy in 35-MPH crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs. Female: Small-sized adult female dummy in 35-mph crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs.

Rollover Note: Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is.
