Compact, dynamic but ever so slightly too small, Smart’s all-new fortwo is significant for several reasons. For a start, this is the first Smart to bypass the burgeoning grey market and be officially imported into the USA.
The 269cm long machine faces stiff opposition in the land of the super-sized automobile, with prospective customers needing a big dose of mental courage to take it out amongst the Escalades, Explorers and multi-wheeled big rigs. But in the city the Smart continues to reign supreme.
The new model is actually slightly larger than its predecessor, but the extra space has been put to good use, with more storage, an exceptionally airy cabin and a kit list that wouldn\’t disgrace cars twice the size.
