2010 Smart Fortwo
Better known as The Smart Car, the Swatch Mercedes Art project proved to be a success when unveiled at the Paris Auto Show. The new 2010 Smart Fortwo is the latest version of the Smart Car and it builds on previous customer complaints and suggestions.
The Smart Fortwo comes with the lightweight rear mounted 999cc engine. The Barely 1L engine has only three cylinders but they provide all the power needed to propel this small car. If you thought you were getting good mileage on your high tech hybrid think again. The Smart car gets 5.4L/100km, that’s 43.5mpg! The car only carries a light fuel tank but that’s not a problem because the 33L tank will get you over 600km.
The new Smart Fortwo has been completely redesigned to not only be compact but safe. The shell of the car is made of reinforced steel braces that add a little weight but provide priceless safety. The Smart car starts at about $15,000 and is even lower for college graduates. You may even be eligible for government grants. Also keep a lookout for the upcoming Smart EV that will be fully electric.
