Despite its small size, its VERY roomy inside. I'm 6' tall, 300lbs and have plenty of space. The 3 cylinder engine is in the rear, and still has plenty of cargo space for groceries, or anything. I've hauled 4 bags of 80lb concrete no problems. Even a full grocery shopping. One thing that people don't realize is that all smart cars use a MANUAL transmission, that automaticly shifts. So there is a delay when the car shifts. You also must wait a second when you go from reverse to drive, as it has to actually shift itself over. Its a bit odd at first, but you get used to it. I've taken many trips out of state with it and it handles wonderfully, even at 90 (its speed limited to 90). Its also pretty peppey for having such a small motor
Bought it for my lady because she was taken by it and I have to tell you it's so much fun to drive. It's extremely roomy I'm 6,2 250 and I've had friends of equal size in it with me and no problems bumpin elbows. You can have two people in it and a completely full shopping cart worth of groceries will fit in back. Once you learn how it shifts into 1st gear (which should take five minutes if you know how to drive) then your good to go. Great for parking gas mileage and comfort. I recommend. ENJOY!!!
