Clever packaging, great interior, cute, frugal
Lumpy ride, jerky automatic box
The cabriolet version of the smart city car makes this funky car more fun. It can be used as a full soft-top, or the roof can be used as a sunroof, sliding back just halfway. There are fewer cabriolets on the used market than the coupe. As a result, prices are higher. However, if you're not put off by left-hand-drive, early cars can be picked up more cheaply than you may expect.
On sale in the UK since 2001, the range was re-branded fortwo from the start of 2004.
