  • Still recognisably a Smart Fortwo - but it looks more different than the jump from Mk1 to Mk2

    Smart ForTwo (2015) review

    Price:  £11,820

    19 January 2015 by Steve Moody

    The third generation of Smart is here. But is the Mk3 Smart as ground-breaking as the original?

  • Smart Fortwo CDI (2008) review

    Price:  £8,000

    09 July 2008 by Andrew Noakes

    Hybrids might be promoted as the environment’s friends, but if you’re really serious about reducing CO2 emissions, and can’t manage without a car, then what you need is the smallest and most...

  • Smart Fortwo ED (2008) electric review

    19 June 2008 by Andrew Noakes

    Smart isn’t trialling 100 electric Fortwos in the UK, instead of Germany, because our petrol prices are higher, or because our congestion charges more swingeing. In fact, it's largely because the...

  • Brabus Ultimate 112 (2008) driven review

    Price:  £36,847

    You’ll know Brabus as a manufacturer of bonkers horsepower mega Mercs. But the tuner is also the official in-house performance partner for Smart and has been turning its expertise to the diminutive...

  • Smart Fortwo Brabus (2007) review

    Price:  £13,520

    17 September 2007 by Richard Aucock

    The world’s fastest rollerskate is back, then? From spring 2008, yes. And those mentalists at Brabus have gone and made it even faster, too – by giving it 30 per cent more power. 30 per cent! Now it...

  • Smart ForTwo 1.0 (2007) review

    Price:  £6,840

    03 June 2007 by Ben Oliver

    So this is the car that will save Smart? Given that it’s now Smart’s only model, yes. The Roadster was canned at the end of 2004 and the ForFour last year, leaving only the original two-seat city car.

    So this is the car that will save Smart? Given that it’s now Smart’s only model, yes. The Roadster was canned at the end of 2004 and the ForFour last year, leaving only the original two-seat city car. It keeps the ForTwo name, despite no longer having to distinguish itself from its deceased bigger brother. Sales of the other two were...
