SMART Used Cars

"Where BMW has the Mini, Mercedes-Daimler has the SMART. Sort of."

Famously one of the best executions yet of a somewhat flawed idea. Sure, Europeans can now have the cheaper, mechanically identical Renault Twingo, but that would ignore a 20-year-old legacy. That of a 20-year-old collaboration between SMART – that fashionable watch company, and stodgy old Mercedes-Benz under the direction of Daimler. 

SMART aka Swatch Mercedes ART then, not a bad contribution to the quirkier side of motorcars. It was initially available in three very distinct formats, a 2-door micro hatchling, generic five door hatch and lastly a very ambitious sports coupe. The Fortwo, Forfour and unimaginatively named Smart Roadster – what, was Forfun already taken? Now, there have been interesting models over the years such as the Crossblade, and a fruitful dalliance with Brabus recently that was as comical as it was pure revelry, plus a range of cabriolet derivatives to get your hair all mussed up.

Power came from a line of 3-cylinder turbocharged engines, both petrol and diesel, and mated to a sluggish 6-speed semi-auto. That original Fortwo had the marked distinction of being so small (and light at 730kg) you could parallel park two of them perpendicularly in one bay. And to think, they initially wanted to call them Swatchmobiles.

Likes: Tiny and cute, like a feral chihuahua.

Dislikes: Actually quite flawed, by today’s standards.
