Demand for this ultra-chic city car really took off when right-hand-drive models hit the market. Before that it was available in left-hand-drive and there are now a small amount on the used market. As a result, prices for the original left-hand-drive cars have fallen to tempting levels. Buyers are attracted to its economical tiny engines, ease of parking and the attractive cabriolet.

On sale in the UK since 2000, the range was re-branded fortwo from the start of 2004.
