The Smart Car was first created in the late 1980s and finally released in the early 1990s. The original design is said to have been derived from the popular Swatch wristwatch and became the fashion in England, when it was introduced in 2000. Although it is considered a non-premium vehicle, the Smart is most closely associated with the luxurious Mercedes-Benz brand and is manufactured by the Daimler-Benz Corporation, which produced its first cars in 1926.
From its first adventures on London streets, the brand has always brought smiles to passers-by. The pod-like shape and rainbow of available colours has made it one of the most recognisable urban cars. The Smart ForTwo is, of course, a two-seater, and its small form makes it the ultimate parking machine. The ForTwo Coupe in particular is tiny and offers a great compromise between performance and economy. The ForTwo Cabriolet on the other hand is great for drivers who love the fun of an open air drive. As a small car, a drop-back top is a logical way to escape the feeling of being boxed-in.
Urban and suburban drivers, who are tired of being at the mercy of the pump, have found a friend in the brand. You really can’t go wrong with a choice of three fuel-smart engines. Even with its most potent petrol engine, the ForTwo still earns 54 mpg combined. The regular petrol ForTwo earns 67.3 mpg, while the diesel ForTwo earns a remarkable 85.6 mpg. With fuel economy numbers like that, it’s like an ongoing refund on the initial cost of the vehicle and for this reason, many large car owners buy the Smart as their second car, and use it for their daily commute.
