About Smart Vehicles
The Smart vehicle brand was originally formed in 1994 in response to a growing demand for a small, stylish, and fuel-efficient car that could be driven around the city. By 1998, Smart had released its first model, the Smart City-Coupe; this small hatchback featured seating for two people, along with rear-wheel drive and a rear engine.
By the 2007 model year, the City-Coupe was renamed the Smart Fortwo, which was initially equipped with a turbocharged three-cylinder engine. By the 2008 model year, a fully electric version of the vehicle became available. The Smart Fortwo remains the only Smart model still produced for the United States market as of October 2019, though other Smart models included the Roadster, Forfour, and Crossblade.
If you're interested in owning a Smart car, you can still find used Smart Fortwos in the United States. Whether you end up with a Fortwo with a three-cylinder engine or a fully electric model, you can enjoy head-turning design and fewer (or zero!) stops at the pump in a Smart car.

Q: Is the Smart Car being discontinued?
A: While Smart cars will continue to be produced in limited markets across the globe, the brand did announce that they are discontinuing production following the 2019 model year. This doesn't come as much of a surprise, as the only Smart model that was still available in the American market for 2019 was the electric Smart Fortwo.
Q: Who owns the Smart Car brand?
A: The Smart Car brand is owned by Daimler AG of Germany, the same company that owns such other vehicle brands as Mercedes-Benz and Mercedes-AMG.

A: That depends on what your definition of "smart" is! The 2018 Smart Fortwo, for example, does have "smart" technology on its base Pure trim that includes smartphone integration.

And if you're looking for a car that gets great fuel economy, a Smart Fortwo may be a "smart" choice; the 2018 Smart Fortwo base trim with 17.6-kWh battery pack and 60kW motor gets an EPA-estimated 108 MPGe.1
Q: What is the top speed of a Smart Car?
A: Top speeds may vary based on model year, trim, and other factors. For reference, the top speed of the 2017 Smart Fortwo is 96 mph.

Reviews for Smart
Smart Cars - the premier city vehicle
Simply, this is a great car for anyone who lives inside city limits where parking is difficult and gas prices are usually higher! It handles great and does not feel like a small car inside. Yes, the amount of storage takes getting used to but it's an insignificant trade off for all the other benefits. I once drove an hour on the freeway and didn't even touch a gallon of gas! I can't express how much relief I get being able to find parking without hassle. If you live in a city then you understand the stressfulness of tight parking spaces! This car takes that all away!

Great price, great gas mileage and Fun to drive!
I love my little smart car, I literally fill it up like twice a month and it costs 18-20$ to fill it using premium. Its a 3 cylinder so it doesnt get going super fast but I can cruise at 80 on the freeway no problem and its as smooth as any other car. Ive owned a genesis, a jeep cherokee, 2 jaguars, a camery, a Volkswagen beetle and a civic in my life time and the smart car is by far the best most efficient vehicle purchase I've made by far. Sure its small but it gets me where im going!

Smart for 2 Passion 2D: Wonderful car; fun to drive, economical.
Many reasons: It's fun to drive. It has a generous rear storage space that can accommodate a whole lot more than one might guess. It is superb in fuel economy. It has the ability to "zoom" despite the 3-cylinder engine and peculiar transmission. It is easier for me to see out of my Smart than it was from my Nissan Sentra--in other words, it sits higher on the road than my prior cars. Seeing it makes me smile and gets a similar response from other people. At first I was concerned about anticipating the feeling that I was driving a "toy" but that has not come to pass. It drives, feels, and seems like a much larger vehicle from the driver's seat. I'm really pleased with my Smart,
- Fuel Economy: Although I spent 2 weeks in the hospital after purchasing the car in early December (with a full tank of gas), it still has about half a tank remaining after driving around a hundred miles.
