SMART ForTwo 2012-2014

Body style: Hatchback
Segment: Mini
Production years: 2012, 2013, 2014

A city car by definition, the Smart Fortwo was a small car with a small engine, designed for daily traffic around town.

The small Smart offered good fuel consumption as well, however, it was not the most refined city car on the market.

The 2-seat subcompact was available as a hatchback coupe or a convertible in two trim levels: Pure and Passion.

The Pure included 15-inch wheels, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and keyless entry. The base model did not offer standard air conditioning, with the feature available as a stand-alone option.

The passion trim level added the Pure’s options and included alloy wheels, a glass roof, heated power mirrors, power windows and a sportier steering wheel.

Options for the more expensive trim level included wider tires, a metallic paint, LED daytime running lights, foglight, automatic lights, automatic wipers, cruise control, heated seats, a 4-speaker upgraded audio system, a touchscreen display with navigation and Bluetooth.

The Smart was powered by a rear-mounted 1.0-liter engine with 70 hp, a powerplant that was mated with a 5-speed automatic manual transmission (single-clutch). The transmission was not the most refined.

Safety wise, the Smart was equipped with side curtain airbags, knee bolster airbags, ABS, hill-hold assist, stability control and traction control.

While the Smart was not an expensive car in its entry level model, the base model did not offer too much for the value.
