Paris Motor Show 2014: Smart

  • New two- and four-seater Smarts uncovered
  • Two engines, two gearboxes on offer
  • Launching in November, built alongside Twingo

Cars on show: ForTwo and ForFour

Smart ForTwo (pictured above)

Big news on the Smart stand as the brand relaunches its two most well-known models.

Set to go on sale in November, the Smart ForTwo is built alongside the Renault Twingo and shares its rear-engined, rear-wheel drive set-up. 

That means clever packaging has unlocked a very spacious cabin for such a small car.

Small petrol engines are the order of the day here, with a pair of three-cylinder units on offer making 70bhp or 89bhp. Manual and automatic gearboxes will be available.

Expect four trims and probably a number of special edition models, starting with the Edition #1 model launched with a two-tone orange and white interior.

Smart ForFour

The ForFour shares a lot of the characteristics of the ForTwo above, but with the obvious addition of two more seats. 

It also has a single piece tailgate rather than a split-opening one on the two-seater car.
