The Smart Fortwo is small enough to park two to a space, which makes a ForTwo taking up two spaces in Portugal a particularly exceptional example of asshattery. This tiny car may be driven by the biggest asshat yet.
Small vehicles like the GEM e2 and Tiger minitruck advertise low cost and efficiency, but the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety thinks they shouldn't share the road with regular vehicles. Here's the dramatic test footage to back up their point.
There are many problems with the US-spec Smart Fortwo. Barely hitting Honda Civic-level fuel economy and trash can interior storage space are two. This driver solved that little problem with a car topper not fit for the car. (Thanks Michael)
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, never short of tests, put six mini/microcars to the roof strength test. The result? If you have to, you might be better off rolling a Smart Fortwo than flipping an Aveo.
Thought you and your friends in high school were funny when you turned old Mr. Johnson's Beetle sideways in its spot? Well brother, you have nothing on the hooligans tossing defenseless parked Smart ForTwos into Amsterdam's canals.
