• Forward-thinking city cars
• Cute and compact design perfect for urban driving
• More than capable on high-speed roads thanks to their light-weight
Smart is responsible for creating some of the quirkiest and fun city drives available to buy, with two great cars available in the range which can be identified by a distinctly cute compact design.
The birth of the Smart brand is owed to a collaboration between Mercedes-Benz and Swiss watchmaker, Swatch, in 1994. The subsidiary manufacturer aimed to specialise in compact and forward-thinking vehicles, as depicted in its logo.
While the all-electric Smart cars were built for the city thanks to manoeuvrable handling and a short turning circle, the range of engines mean that all models are capable on high-speed roads. 84bhp may not seem like much, but considering the heaviest version weighs just over a tonne, it responds well to acceleration for an entry-level powertrain.
The key decision you’ll have to make when you’re looking to drive away in a Smart car is whether you want a two-seater or four-seater. As the names suggest, the ForTwo Coupe and Cabrio has enough room for two adults, while the ForFour surprisingly has interior space which can house four adults and give them plenty of head and legroom in the process.
