But that could soon change. smart has teamed up with another specialist in urban transportation, Renault. The French have been selling Clios since 1990 and together they've been working on two new sizes of city car. For smart, that means a new fortwo and a new forfour.
Before they are ready to put the cars into production, smart have taken to the Frankfurt Motor Show and launched a new concept called the fourjoy. This previews not only their new design language, but also a successor to the forfour.
Daimler AG head of design Gordon Wagener says the concept shows the appearance of our four-seater production smart. Even by smart standards, it's quite small – length: 3494mm/width: 1978mm / height: 1494mm. Yet as you can see, it comfortably seats four people.
As a pure design, the fourjoy is fascinating. It has no doors, no roof and bucket seats are so white they look like angelic thrones.
We'll have to wait until next year to see if the real forfour measures up to this fantastic concept.
