Smart Fortwo

The Smart Fortwo is a distinctive two-seater microcar produced by Smart, a subsidiary of Daimler AG. Originally introduced in 1998, the car’s unique design and ultra-compact dimensions made it especially suitable for urban environments with tight parking and dense traffic.

Smart Fortwo Overview

The Smart Fortwo was developed with the aim of providing a compact yet safe vehicle for urban mobility. Its name, “Fortwo,” is a play on words, indicating it’s “for two” passengers. One of its most notable design elements is the Tridion safety cell, a visible high-strength steel frame that provides rigidity and safety in the event of a collision. This cell is often painted in a contrasting color, making it a distinguishing feature of the car’s design.

Initially branded as the “Smart City-Coupé”, this generation established the Smart brand’s image with its highly compact size and distinctive design. Over the years, the Fortwo has been available with a variety of small gasoline engines, often turbocharged to boost performance without compromising efficiency.

The Smart Fortwo has always been a polarizing vehicle, with supporters praising its innovation, ease of parking, and city-friendly nature. Meanwhile, critics often pointed out its limited practicality, firm ride, and, in earlier models, a somewhat jerky automated manual transmission. The car has carved out a niche in densely populated cities and among those who value its unique design and urban-centric features.

The Smart Fortwo is available with a choice of petrol, diesel, and electric engines. The petrol version is powered by a 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine that produces 71 horsepower. The diesel version is powered by a 0.9-liter three-cylinder engine that produces 60 horsepower. The electric version is powered by a 60 kW (82 hp) electric motor and has a range of up to 80 miles. The Smart Fortwo is available in both coupé and convertible body styles. It is also available in a number of special editions, such as the Brabus and the Electric Drive.
