Although the second-generation Smart is improved, it's still not a smart choice unless easy parking is a priority. For 2018 only the electric-drive version is available. Tiny dimensions and a diminutive turning circle make it a breeze to park. We tested the discontinued turbocharged, three-cylinder, 89-hp engine. Handling is fairly responsive, but the ride is jittery and jumpy. Noise and vibration from the engine buzzed through the car. The six-speed dual-clutch automatic is better than the original's rocky-shifting transmission but still causes idle vibration. Given the car's size and slow acceleration, you'd expect better than 36 mpg overall on premium fuel. Funky interior details and cheerful colors and textures abound, and the tall stance eases cabin access.

Smart ForTwo 2015 Trim Shown: 2015 Pure Coupe
This tiny two-seater was one of our lowest-rated cars, though it's good on gas, a snap to park, and easily sparks conversations. Access to the cabin is very easy and the seats are comfortable too. Power comes from a 1.0-liter, three-cylinder engine that does a decent job keeping up with traffic, but the Smart is very slow accelerating from a stop. It also has a harsh ride, clumsy handling, and an automated manual transmission that has the worst shift quality we've ever experienced. Gear changes are awkwardly executed, causing the car to pause and heave, which rocks occupants fore and aft. We've measured 39 mpg overall, but the Smart requires premium fuel. And, truth be told, given its size, the car really should return much better fuel economy.

Smart ForTwo 2007
The Smart ForTwo is a tiny two-seater four feet shorter than a Mini Cooper made by DaimlerChrysler. Inside, it doesn't feel as tiny and vulnerable as it looks. With a 40-hp, 0.8-liter, three-cylinder, turbocharged diesel engine and a six-speed sequential transmission, it recorded one of  the slowest 0-60 mph acceleration time of any vehicle we've tested: 23.2 seconds. The car quickly loses speed when climbing hills. Shifts are disturbingly slow, causing the car to lurch and lose significant speed during shifts. Handling is reluctant. Steering is vague, and the ride is jittery. At 45 mpg, it goes only one mile further on a gallon of fuel than a Toyota Prius. At least it attracts a lot of grins from onlookers.
