You’ll only find unusual solutions by asking unusual
questions. “open your mind” is a call to question the
status quo, take a different angle and risk a fresh
approach – all essential elements when broadening
your horizons. As demonstrated by smart and the smart
fortwo – an extraordinary vehicle concept for greater
mobility in ever denser urban traffic. A concept
that simply makes more intelligent use of the ever
diminishing space available in our towns and cities.

Does a car need a rear seat – when it carries an

average of just 1.2 occupants in urban traffic? Isn’t
a hood a waste of space – when the engine can be
accommodated at the rear? Is size really a measure
of safety – when an innovative safety concept offers
optimum protection in a vehicle measuring just 2.69 m
in length? All valid questions in an ever evolving world.

means low running costs.

> 08
>> The engine:
Where low consumption meets high performance.
The larger and higher-powered 3-cylinder in-line engine remains consistent with the
vehicle concept of the smart fortwo. With a capacity of under one litre, it is extremely
compact, space-saving, and thanks to its all-aluminium design, particularly light. And
despite its low fuel consumption and low emissions, offers impressive technical data.
All of which adds up to enhanced agility and better performance.

>> The engine.

With 4 valves per cylinder (12-valve engine) and 2 hydraulically adjustable camshafts,
the new engine generates plenty of torque even at low revs. The naturally aspirated
3-cylinder in-line engine with a 999 cc capacity comes standard with 70 bhp. So whether
you’re traversing the urban labyrinth or hitting the open road, you’ve got more than
enough power at your disposal.

> 10
>> The transmission:
The height of convenience – and fun.
The newly developed 5-speed automatic with manual shift mode now provides for even faster gear shifting, virtually free of any
delays. The smart fortwo offers a user-friendly automatic gear program – which does away with the need to use a clutch pedal.
A feature you’ll find particularly convenient in town and city traffic. The new transmission also features a kickdown function which
changes down by one or two gears when appropriate. Simply press the accelerator right down to harness the engine’s full
power potential.
