Many people who've been disappointed with the Smart are comparing it to a car and I've decided that that is not what the Smart actually is. It's actually a go-cart. Gas mileage, performance, handling, comfort are equivalent to a go-cart with a nice interior and a surprising amount of clever storage space. So if you think it might be fun to drive a go-cart daily, the Smart is for you. I personally love it. I grocery shop, take long-ish trips in it, take my dogs too and from the park in it, etc etc. It's my daily driver.

About the Smart Fortwo

Vehicle Summary

The Smart Fortwo (as the name implies) is a two-seat car that was formerly known as the SmartCar from 1998 through 2002. This vehicle features a unique rear-mounted engine and is available in both three-door coupe and two-door convertible/cabriolet body styles. The Smart Fortwo entered its third generation of production with the 2014 model year, debuting with a 1.0L three-cylinder engine at 70 hp. An Electric Drive version is also available for each third-generation model year—though the Fortwo switched to electric-only beginning in 2018.

If you're looking for a quirky, eye-catching car that may help you cut back on (or eliminate!) stops at the pump, the Smart Fortwo is worth a look. Whether you opt for a gasoline-powered Fortwo or an all-electric model, this car offers such standard features as smartphone integration, automatic climate control, and Bluetooth® connectivity in its 2017 model year. And despite is ultra-compact size, the Fortwo makes excellent use of its space with a fold-flat passenger seat and ample small-item storage solutions.

FAQ

Q: Who makes the Smart Fortwo?

A: The Fortwo is manufactured by the Smart division of Daimler AG, which is headquartered in Germany.

Q: Is the Smart Fortwo electric?

A: Up until the 2018 model year, the Fortwo was available with either a gasoline engine or an electric motor/battery combo. Beginning with 2018, however, all Fortwo models are fully electric.

Q: How many miles per gallon does a Smart Fortwo car get?

A: Fuel economy of the Smart Fortwo can vary greatly based on model year and drivetrain. For example, the 2014 Fortwo base trim with 1.0L three-cylinder engine and automatic transmission gets an EPA-estimated 36 mpg combined.1 Meanwhile, the 2018 Fortwo Electric Drive coupe's base trim with 17.6-kWh battery pack and 60-kW motor gets an EPA-estimated 108 MPGe.2

Q: Can you drive a Smart car on the highway?

A: Yes, you can drive a Smart car on the highway, though the acceleration will be notably slower than in most traditional cars. For instance, the 2014 Fortwo takes 14.1 seconds to reach 60 mph from a dead stop. Still, the same 2014 Fortwo has a top speed of 90 mph, so it can be driven on the highway.

A: Hp output can vary based on model year and engine configuration. The 2017 Fortwo, for example, offers a turbocharged 0.9L three-cylinder engine at 89 hp.

Smart Fortwo Trim Configurations

The Smart Fortwo's trim offerings have evolved quite a bit over the years; with the release of the third generation (2014-present), the Fortwo was available with two trim levels. With the introduction of the Prime trim in 2016 and the Proxy trim for 2017, the Fortwo was available in four trim configurations by 2017.

Engine offerings have also varied over the years. The 2014 Fortwo debuted with a standard 1.0L three-cylinder engine at 70 hp, though its electric version was marketed with a 17.6-kWh battery pack and 55-kW electric motor for 46 hp. By the 2018 model year, the Fortwo was offered exclusively as an electric vehicle with a 17.6-kWh battery pack and 60-kW electric motor for a combined output of 80 hp.

While the Fortwo is available in both coupe and cabriolet body styles, specific trim offerings for these can vary by model year. For example, the 2017 Fortwo cabriolet is not offered with the base Pure trim.

Fun to drive cheap to own

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!!!

Pros

  • Fuel Economy: Fill it up twice a month
  • Cost to Maintain: Unknown
  • Interior Space: Unbelievably roomy

- Joe Mineo, 2013 Smart Fortwo

My everyday go-cart!

It's fun but not a car. It would definitely depend on the friend. Again - the Smart is NOT a car. Many people who've been disappointed with the Smart are comparing it to a car and I've decided that that is not what the Smart actually is. It's actually a go-cart. Gas mileage, performance, handling, comfort are equivalent to a go-cart with a nice interior and a surprising amount of clever storage space. So if you think it might be fun to drive a go-cart daily, the Smart is for you. I personally love it. I grocery shop, take long-ish trips in it, take my dogs too and from the park in it, etc etc. It's my daily driver.

Pros

  • Styling: My smart has elegant leather styling inside. Some are more basic but mine is on the nicer side.
  • Dashboard: simple and uncluttered, never sifting through superfluous buttons to get what I need.
  • Ride and Handling: The ride is rough but the handling is laugh out loud fun - super tight turns and can make a Yewy in one lane's worth of space.

Cons

  • Power: It can keep up on the freeway with no problem but initial acceleration can be a little iffy.
  • Visibility: But only when I drop the top. On retraction, the soft top forms a visually obstructing fabric accordion in back so that there is no use for the rear view mirror.
  • Cost to Maintain: Tires aren't cheap because they're unique... And it is Mercedes and most basic car maintenance people look at the Smart with question marks over their heads. So I'll be doing maintenance at the Mercedes dealership. That will be pricier I'm sure.

- Rina Rinard, 2013 Smart Fortwo

You can't find a better car for gas mileage! And it's fun, too!

Mileage averaging 40 mpg highway. This is my commuter car. It's novel. I get lots of looks and finger pointing. It is a little rough riding and the cooling system (AC) is not great. It does great on the interstate once going but not much pickup speed. Great little commuter car and around town. Definitely not a luxury car. Not meant to be. It's all about gas mileage!

Pros

  • Fuel Economy: Great gas mileage. avg 40 mpg highway
  • Safety: Very sturdy. Nephew has one, hit a deer, very little damage to car and no injuries to him
  • Value: Reasonable cost to buy, low maintenance costs, great mpg. Good value indeed.

Cons

  • Power: Not much pickup speed but good on interstate afterward.
  • Cabin Noise: A little rough riding and noisy. Not a luxury car, but not meant to be.
  • Technology and Entertainment: The A/C doesn't cool really well but the heater works well. It has GPS but it's not very good and don't know how to update maps.
