Been around long enough for the novelty to wear off, but it hasn't. They still look cool, still make you giggle when one goes past and still look funky inside. Smart is owned by Mercedes-Benz so you get street-cred by association. Tiny turbocharged engine is nippy enough for town driving, paddleshift gearbox is fun and easy to use. Plastic body panels are interchangeable for different colours.
