New 2017 smart fortwo

The 2017 Smart Fortwo is a fun, expressive city car that is ultimately difficult to recommend due to its poor ride quality and clunky transmission.

What's New?

The 2017 Smart Fortwo is now available in a convertible body style (Smart calls it a Cabrio) to complement the existing Coupe. The Smart Electric Drive electric vehicle also enters the fold; it too can be ordered as a Coupe or Cabrio. Models with foglights also get cornering lights. A Brabus Sport package is also new for 2017. Later in the year, the Electric Drive's available touchscreen will be optional for the gas-powered car.

Edmunds Says:

One of the most infuriating issues that anyone living in a big city will inevitably have to deal with is parking. Perhaps a sports car is splitting two stalls. A pickup is crammed into a spot marked "Compact." Or maybe the only opening is next to a sidewalk, and you aren't the world's greatest parallel parker. If any of these scenarios seem familiar, you might be drawn to the small footprint of the 2017 Smart Fortwo.

The Fortwo is instantly recognizable for its compact dimensions (competing subcompacts such as the Fiat 500 and Mini Cooper are even bigger). It's the ruler of the parking lot, slotting into spots too tight for normal cars. It's also easy to maneuver on the street, especially the Electric Drive EV, with the instant power afforded by its battery pack. But take it out of crowded cityscapes and much of its appeal is lost. Acceleration is extremely slow at highway speeds, the ride is unforgivably rough, and its blind spots are wide. Unless you absolutely need a Fortwo for its short length, most rivals are a better buy, even if they are slightly pricier.
