Reliability of the Smart car

In the 2018 Which? reliability survey, Smart placed 29th out of 36.
The history of Smart cars
Though the Smart car was originally designed in the late 1980s, collaboration between Swatch and Mercedes-Benz (Swatch Mercedes ART), the first Smart car didn’t actually appear on British shores until 2000, almost 20 years after the initial design was conceived.
Since their launch in 2000 there have been 10 different models of Smart car available in the UK, including two electric vehicles that were launched in 2017.
Smart cars are known for their fuel economy, with the Smart Fortwo managing between 46 and 68 miles to the gallon.
