The new Smart ForTwo

What is it?

The revised Smart city car from Mercedes


Why is it important?

The Smart ForTwo is a city car, marketed under the Smart brand by Mercedes-Benz. It’s a rear-engined, rear-wheel drive car with dimensions that make it a perfect city runabout.The original Smart ForTwo’s claim to fame was that you could park the car just about anywhere. It was the perfect length to be parked longitudinally in a parallel parking slot. The new one exceeds the size limit by a small bit, so you need to resort to parallel parking

now. The brand has lately been neglected a little, so this is the first update the car receives after the new model was introduced in 2007. This stop-gap arrangement will have to do till an all-new model arrives in a couple of years. In the meantime, people will continue cramming litre-bike engines into the back of them and going through many, many sets of rear wheels!
