Let’s be honest, the Smart Fortwo isn’t a car that’s designed for everyone, but it isn’t meant to be. In an automotive marketplace that is dominated by niche vehicles, the Smart Fortwo carries the torch for high-efficiency city cars. Pushed forward by a three-cylinder engine, The Fortwo offers up to 34 city miles per gallon and a surprising amount of cargo room for its size. All these make for the perfect vehicle for environmentally conscious young professionals looking for efficiency and a good amount of fun in a small, inexpensive package.
For such a small and lightweight car, the Smart Fortwo offers an impressive amount of safety. Its Tridion Safety Cell consists of reinforced steel, eight standard airbags, and crosswind resistance that triggers your brakes to help combat large and strong gusts.
Thanks in no small part to its size, the Smart Fortwo offers a best-in-class 22.8 foot turning radius, perfect for handling sharp corners and furthering its status as a city car. The Fortwo measures in at 8.8 feet long and 5.5 feet wide, making it perfect for wedging into tight spaces and alleys.
If you’re ever in a position where you need to transport a good amount of cargo, the Fortwo can help as well. The model offers a wider wheelbase and twin section tailgate, helping with loading and unloading, and folding seats help you to get as much as you need inside.
