2013 Smart fortwo

The unmistakable Smart car, with its distinctive perpendicular rear, has undergone a major revamp with the release of the 2013 Smart fortwo.

Despite the extensive changes, the car is still recognizable as a Smart car.

It is still uses less fuel, a two-seater car and remains the easiest car to park, making it a perfect vehicle for environmentally aware urban use.

Exterior

From the front, there are several noticeably changed features, giving the car a more dynamic and streamlined appearance. The grille is now larger and the company logo is integrated in its center.

Both the front and rear aprons have been redesigned. The car now has skirts on the sides, giving it a stronger appearance. There are horizontally arranged LED lights and a single air intake unit, both helping to lend greater presence to the car.

You can choose from three different alloy wheel types with their Smart fortwo, and there are some new color options available.

Interior

The cabin, too, has undergone some eye-catching changes, and the seating is now decked out in a combination of leather and fabric using a black/gray color scheme. Door trims, the instrument panel and the dashboard have the same color scheme but are made from composites.

Trims

Like earlier versions of the car, the Smart fortwo is available in five different trims. The top trim is the Brabus Xclusive. This is followed by the Brabus and then the passion, pulse and pure (all marketed, like the fortwo, using lower case words). The Smart fortwo is available in cabrio and coupe versions.

Performance

There are six different engines available with the 2013 Smart fortwo. Buyers can opt for an all-electric engine, or purchase a hybrid gas/electric version. Then there are standard gas engines, the most powerful of which is a turbo. Finally, the car is available with a turbo diesel engine.
