Smart ForTwo Overview

This tiny two-seater is good on gas and a snap to park. After that, the positives pretty much run out. The Smart features a 1.0-liter, three-cylinder engine that does a decent job keeping up with traffic, but the car is very slow when taking off from a stop. We measured 39 mpg overall, but the dinky little engine requires premium fuel. The harsh ride, clumsy handling, and automated manual transmission with extremely jerky and jarring gear changes are all major negatives. Access to the cabin is very easy, and the seats are comfortable. An electrically-powered version with a rated 68-mile range and 107 mpg equivalent is available.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
