2009 Smart ForTwo Review - Kelley Blue Book

FOR MORE CAR VIDEOS & REVIEWS VISIT: http://www.kbb.com/videos 2009 Smart ForTwo. More and more Americans are learning to appreciate small cars for their fuel efficient, easy to park natures. Taking that formula and amplifying it is the Smart ForTwo, a sub-sub compact that has been sold in Europe for years but is set to push the boundaries of Americas small car appreciation. Capable of parking in impossibly small spots, the ForTwo is made for city dwellers. Its also made for environmentally concerned citizens, as illustrated by its 40 milesper-gallon-plus highway fuel economy. Add to that a starting price around $12,000 and the Smart ForTwo might be an alternative for car buyers who want to save cash and the planet.

Honda Element SC Video Review - Kelley Blue Book
FOR MORE CAR VIDEOS & REVIEWS VISIT: http://www.kbb.com/videos 2009 Honda Element SC. Building on the success of the Element SUV, Honda takes its rolling dorm room concept to the next level with the Element SC. Designed to appeal to a more street-wise crowd, the SC does away with the all-wheel-drive option and substitutes racy 18-inch wheels, a stiffer suspension and a lower ride height. The SC also jettisons the industrial-grade plastic floor mat in favor of a carpeted passenger compartment. Aimed squarely at younger drivers who enjoy modifying their own vehicles, Honda wisely offers a long list of accessories specifically designed for the Element.

Hyundai Sonata Video Review - Kelley Blue Book
FOR MORE CAR VIDEOS & REVIEWS VISIT: http://www.kbb.com/videos 2009 Hyundai Sonata. Hyundai has made its mark in the United States. It is now the countrys number four import brand, thanks in no small part to the Sonata. The midsize Sonata is Hyundais best-selling vehicle, and for good reason. It offers a smooth ride, a generous interior, competitive engines, and lots of features for the dollar. The Sonata has grown over the years, and is now sized right in line with competitors like the Nissan Altima, Chevrolet Malibu and Toyota Camry. Its no sport sedan, but much like the Camry, it aims at smoothness and luxury over sportiness. For more new car reviews, interviews and automotive news visit http://www.kbb.com today.





Mercedes-Benz M-Class Video Review - Kelley Blue Book
FOR MORE CAR VIDEOS & REVIEWS VISIT: http://www.kbb.com/videos 2009 Mercedes-Benz M-Class. The M-Class is Mercedes-Benzs contender in the growing mid-size luxury SUV arena, battling such heavyweights as the Lexus RX 350, BMW X5 and Infiniti FX. Unlike the original M, which rode on a truck-like body-on-frame architecture, the newest M-Class is closer in design to a very tall passenger car. The unit body gives the M-Class greater structural rigidity, and allows for better ride and handling via a fully independent suspension. The M-Class comes in three flavors including a potent V8 model dubbed the ML550, and the miserly ML320 CDI which uses Mercedes-Benzs clean diesel technology.

2009 Acura TSX Review - Kelley Blue Book
FOR MORE CAR VIDEOS & REVIEWS VISIT: http://www.kbb.com/videos 2009 Acura TSX. The Acura TSX has made a name for itself as a svelte, sensible entry-level luxury sedan with nimble handling and a fuel-efficient four-cylinder engine. Now in its second generation, the TSX gains some size and weight, but keeps the economical four-cylinder power. With a larger footprint and a more luxurious interior, the TSX has moved slightly upmarket. Despite the larger dimensions, the TSX is still fun to drive and fuel economy actually improves. The TSX remains an excellent choice for buyers who want an affordable luxury car that is also affordable at the pump.

2015 Smart ForTwo action & beauty showcased
The revolution enters the next round -- the smart fortwo has undergone improvements in virtually all areas and is markedly more comfortable. The hallmark smart rear engine concept is being offered for the first time in the four-seater smart forfour as well. Drive power is supplied by state-of-the-art three-cylinder engines rated at 45 kW/60 hp, 52 kW/71 hp and 66 kW/90 hp, while power transmission is performed by a five-speed manual transmission or the twinamic automatic dual clutch transmission. A host of innovative details guarantee even more fun in the city. The new smart generation will be launched onto the market in Europe in November. The price for the smart fortwo with 52 kW engine will be under 11,000 euros, while the smart forfour will cost only around 600 euros more with the same engine. "As Europe's youngest car brand, smart enjoys global success today. No-one combines functionality and emotion as well as we do, as the inventors of individual urban mobility. The new smart fortwo and forfour adopt the proven concept while offering more of just about everything -- more space, more colour, more equipment ... and even more fun in the city! Only the vehicle length remains as unique as ever, at 2.69 metres," says smart boss Annette Winkler. "Our idea based on a total rethink of urban mobility has won through." "In the planning phase we were clear that we wanted to retain the rear engine for the new smart, so as to continue to exploit the vehicles' strengths to the full in the city," explains Jörg Prigl, head of the product group Compact Cars at Mercedes-Benz. "On this basis, we then developed the new fortwo and forfour together with our partner, Renault." "Despite increased safety requirements, we have managed to retain the smart fortwo's unique length of just 2.69 metres," adds Markus Riedel, head of development at smart. "It shares its architecture with the new forfour. We have tailored both of the vehicles to the needs of modern-day city traffic. My team is particularly proud of the turning circle, which sets a brand new benchmark at just 6.95 metres for the fortwo." The brand appeals equally to both the heart and the mind. An expressive design idiom and colouring embody pure joie de vivre. The compact proportions and clever details attest to unique functionality. The new smart fortwo and the new smart forfour are clearly recognisable as members of the same family. Many design features such as the headlamps, the cooling air grille in the front and the iconic tridion safety cell are identical, for example. And both vehicles are fitted with rear engines, making them particularly agile in urban traffic. "smart stands for FUN.ctional design, as the brand is defined by two poles -- the heart and mind. The design idiom is clear, purist and trendy, and the hallmark smart attributes are being adopted into a new era. These attributes include the characteristic silhouette with the ultra-short overhangs, the clear lines and forms, the tridion cell and the updated smart face," notes Gorden Wagener, Head of Design at Daimler AG.

Smart Fortwo demo ride with Tim & Chuck
Updated 9/27/2013: We still continue to get hits on this video so I am leaving it up. I'm looking into the Smart Electric as a possibility of a commuter vehicle. All I need is a charging station at home and at the office. That's not impossible. This lease deal Smart has for $139 is something to consider. If you sign-up for the battery plan (which is part of the $139) then there is no annual mileage limitations on the lease - the usual deal-killer for me on leasing a car as my commute is 40 miles one-way. I'm looking into doing this but I do need to resolve the charging-station issue. The Smart Electric does not have the herky-jerky transmission of the gas model. It's quite smooth. As a commuter and for that price, it is something to consider. Updated 5/19/2012: Since I originally posted this video I have modified my impressions a bit. I discovered other cars in this same price range that have better mileage on regular gas (the SmartCar uses premium), will seat 4 people, and have a better air-conditioner and smoother transmission. All that said, I will stick with my original statement that it is a fun car to drive, handles well even on the highway, is a cinch to park, still is a head-turner, and serves a certain market niche. Good luck! =========================== [Original Comments...] This video really is for my god-daughter in Canada who wanted to see my Smart Car. So this is a Smart Fortwo demo ride video taken on Easter, 2010. As explained in the video, it takes a bit of getting used to the automatic shifting mechanism. It can be driven fairly smoothly but requires about an hour to get the right touch of the gas and brake. The brake is sensitive and is hinged from the bottom which is unusual these days. Great little car. Lots of fun. Good price. Good gas mileage, although premium fuel is needed. Basic stereo is pretty good. A/C ran well. About the only accessory not available is cruise-control. Highway speeds were good, stable, and responsive. There never was a feeling the car is as small as it it. The view from inside seems very similar to any sub-compact car, contrary to what one might think. Comfort is quite reasonable on smooth highway. However, in-town potholes and rough road can be quite jarring, as might be expected for such a short car. Ground clearance is good and one sits quite high up for a good view. Two large people are easily handled with no noticeable performance issues. Interior room and head-room is excellent. There is no need get down and crawl into the car. Seating is high and doors open wide for easy access. There is an all-electric version but it is not yet available in the USA. I suspect it would be very smooth as most electrics do not really require a traditional transmission. Overall, I think it is a great car, a bit of novelty, and probably a good commuter car. It really is limited to two seats and groceries. Probably, for a few thousand more, one could purchase a true 4-seat car that is more traditional such as a Honda Fit. If one lived downtown in a major city, though, this would be an excellent car as one can park it just about anywhere. A major trip of a few hundred miles would not be unreasonable, either, so it is quite useable all-around. Reports and videos elsewhere on YT give the vehicle good safety marks. Overall, I liked it and felt quite comfortable in the vehicle after a weekend of use.
