For about a year now, we've been looking at the next generation smart fortwo and forfour only as really ugly test mules based on the Renault Twingo body. They looked like refrigerators on wheels, no the attractive little ladybugs everybody thinks smarts are.
But at the Frankfurt Motor Show, smart revealed its brand new design language, thus allowing engineers to start work on prototypes made from what will become full production body panels.

This third-generation fortwo model will most likely make its official debut next year, most likely at the Paris Motor Show in September, though a web debut before that is also possible.

The new smart fortwo has much larger headlights compared to the current mode, likely a result of the shared architecture with Renault. These appear to have conventional halogen bulbs but also a strip of LEDs at the bottom. We'd say this is the least smart-looking car ever, which is not necessarily a bad thing. Becoming less of a niche car is important for sales success.

Power will once again come from a rear-mounted engine, likely to be the same 0.9-liter three-cylinder found in the Renault Clio. Right from start, there will be an electric model as well.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
