Get a good look, kids. If DaimlerChrysler opts to bring the Smart brand to the US — a decision is forthcoming says Dieter "Ich bin ein CEO" Zetsche — this redesigned Fortwo will be carrying the flag. Spies caught the next-generation model during testing near the Smart manufacturing plant in Hambach, France. Looks like it'll mainly have a longer nose to accommodate US front-impact standards, along with a few minor style tweaks. It'll also have a new engine by Mitsubishi under the hood, according to reports.
