Smart ForTwo Overview
This tiny two-seater is good on gas and a snap to park. A redesign, sharing a platform with a model from Renault, arrives this year. Meanwhile, the outgoing Smart we tested left a lot to be desired. The car is very slow when taking off from a stop and the dinky little engine requires premium fuel. The harsh ride, clumsy handling, and automated manual transmission with extremely jerky gear changes are severe flaws that Mercedes-Benz promises the new model does away with. The Smart's 39 mpg overall was its best feature. An electrically-powered version with a rated 68-mile range and 107 mpg equivalent is available. A redesigned ForTwo goes on sale in September.
