I’ll be the first to admit that I’m really not the most objective person to be writing about the new 2016 Smart ForTwo. That’s not because of any loyalty to the company, but rather an innate fondness of the type of car: a rear-engined, small economy car. Decades ago, these were once everywhere, and now, in the U.S. at…
In order to convince potential buyers that the minuscule Smart ForTwo isn't something they will be violently killed in, Smart has long trumpeted the car's "tridion safety cell" as being one of the most protective systems out there. But how does it hold up in a Mercedes-style David vs. Goliath crash test?
I always thought the Smart Fortwo was the perfect example of a product that seemed great on paper but came up short in reality. A tiny, super-efficient modern city car you can park anywhere? Great! But its execution was way off. The all-new 2016 Smart ForTwo and ForFour aim to fix its problems for good.
Ladies and gentlemen, if you were wondering what the next generation of Smart models will look like, wonder no more. (Updated with more pictures).
