Other Smart Fortwo (2004 - 2007) models:

  • Summary

    4 out of 5 4.0

    What does this car say about you?

    Dunno. Don't care. At least I'm not an idiot with a big 4Wd gas-guzzler that'll poison the next generation.

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    Dodgem, joke car...etc.

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    Yes, if the deal was right, but not the new shape. The Toyota iq is a far better choice. I would say it's well worth getting the car uprated to 80BPH with performance air filter and intake etc. With more power it's just fine on the motorway, and very nippy.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    Toyota iq, or Citroen C1
