Model Highlights

While the smart fortwo is still powered by a tiny 1.0L 3-cylinder engine, power has risen by a noticeable 19hp over the previous generation thanks to the addition of a turbocharger. The powerplant's 89 horsepower may not sound like much, but it's enough to make the little 1980-lb smart fortwo zip through traffic. The increased power also makes the occasional trip onto the freeway a much less harrowing experience than in years past. The engine sits over the rear wheels and underneath the trunk, where it sends power to those rear wheels via either a 5-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed dual clutch gearbox.

The smart fortwo comes in four different trims, Pure, Passion, Prime and Proxy, each one offering a few more features and amenities than the previous one.

The base smart fortwo Pure comes standard with 15-inch rims, a color, digital instrument display, LED daytime running lights, Bluetooth connectivity, automatic climate control, cruise control and power windows.

The Passion trim adds a bit more style with a range of interior color options and a leather wrapped steering wheel. The driver's seat is height adjustable, while the mirrors are powered and heated for cold mornings. While the Passion also rides on 15-inch wheels, it gets a fun and stylish rim design unique to the trim level.

The Prime trim gets a little taste of luxury, with a panoramic sunroof that takes up nearly the entire roof and black leather upholstery. The Prime also comes with heated seats, nicer interior lighting, fog lamps and a rain and light sensor.

The top of the line Proxy trim comes with a JBL stereo, alloy pedals, chrome exhaust tips and a lowered suspension riding on 16-inch alloy wheels. A unique blue and white interior looks sharp and fun.

Options on the fortwo include a cellphone cradle, a proximity warning function, rear parking assist and an armrest.

With such a small footprint, safety was a concern for the fortwo and its designers have responded with several innovative safety features. The smart features a patented Tridion Safety Cell made from high-strength steel, while spot welded reinforcements in the doors help buffer against side impacts. 8 airbags are included as standard as is traction control and stability control. A crosswind assist feature is also standard, which helps to stabilize the little fortwo in windy situations.

The smart fortwo electric drive continues to be available for 2016, but instead of getting a refresh like the conventional fortwo, it carries over on the 2015 platform and did not get the redesign that its gasoline-powered sibling received. It's driven by a lithium ion battery an electric motor. Together, the system produces 74 horsepower and 96 lb-feet of torque. The EPA rates the fortwo EV at 107 combined MPG-equivalent. It takes 6 hours to charge the battery using the 240V charger. Mercedes anticipates releasing a redesigned fortwo EV for 2017.


Model News

The smart fortwo is all new this year. While the styling has evolved, the basic premise behind the fortwo has not. It's still a tiny, 2-seat, urban, city car that does its best work in crowded streets where parking is scarce. A new, more powerful turbocharged engine gives the fortwo a bit more oomph for those occasional trips onto the freeway, while a redesigned interior innovates and makes the most of the space that is available.


Value Writeup

The smart fortwo is a pure city car. Its size and unique configuration puts it in a class of its own. It competes with other subcompacts such as the Nissan Versa, the Mitsubishi Mirage and the Fiat 500, though none of them are quite as small. Starting at under $15,000, the smart fortwo is one of the least expensive cars available in the U.S. It is also one of the easiest cars to live with for those living in a big city. Make no mistake, the fortwo wasn't built for the vast open spaces of rural America, but its tiny footprint and small, efficient engine begins to make a lot of sense when stop and go traffic and finding a big enough space to parallel park in become primary concerns. At just 106 inches long, the smart needs roughly half the space of a normal car for parking, meaning that owners spend less time hunting for a spot and more time enjoying their lives once they've reached their destination.

Rollover Note
Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is.
