Crash Test: 2008 Smart Car ForTwo
Get more info on the Smartcar
In recent Insurance Institute for Highway Safety tests, the 2008 Smart
Fortwo, the smallest car for sale in the US market, earned the top rating
of good for front and side crash protection. Its seat/head restraints
earned the second highest rating of acceptable for protection against
whiplash in rear impacts. Smart Fortwo is classified a microcar, meaning
it's smaller even than minicars. Weighing about 1,800 pounds, the Smart is
more than 3 feet shorter and almost 700 pounds lighter than a Mini Cooper.

DRIVING New 2015 Smart ForTwo RWD
http://Carwp.blogspot.com.br (from Smart Press Release) 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 will correspond to that of the current smart series, 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 emotionality 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
"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."
"We are proud to have made the fortwo even safer and in sum more grown up
whilst retaining its length of 2.69 metres," adds Markus Riedel, head of
development at smart. "In doing so we even reduced the turning circle to
6.95 metres and thus set a new benchmark. The fortwo shares its
architecture with the new forfour; both cars are tailor-made for the
requirements of modern city traffic."
The brand appeals to the heart and mind in equal portion. 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 and purist and therefore
very progressive. The typical smart attributes are being carried into a new
era: the typical silhouette with the ultra-short overhangs, the clear
lines, forms and surfaces, the tridion cell and the updated, likeable smart
face," says Gorden Wagener, Head of Design at Daimler AG. "It is never easy
to design the successor to a design icon - but it is all the more
Extreme agility and optimum use of space - more fun in the city
Short overhangs, minimal length, high steering angle. The new smart models
have everything it takes to manoeuvre elegantly into any parking space -
and around every corner, too. When it comes to the turning circle, the new
smart fortwo sets a new benchmark: at 6.95 m (from kerb to kerb) and 7.30 m
(from wall to wall) it makes turning manoeuvres extremely simple. And the
new smart forfour turns almost as compactly as the previous fortwo (wall to
wall: 8.75 m). Its statistics are 8.65 m (kerb to kerb) and 8.95 m (wall to
The new models also come up trumps once again with regard to the maximum of
space packed into minimal dimensions, as documented by the excellent body
space index. Additional highlights include the rear doors opening by almost
90° on the smart forfour and the folding front passenger seat backrest
which comes as standard for all variants.
Real Life Safety - safety features
The essential safety concept embodied so successfully by the preceding
models has been retained. Like a nut, the soft interior is protected from
harm by a rigid shell: the tridion cell. A high proportion of ultra-high
strength hot-formed steels and maximum-strength multiphase steel is now
used on the new smart. In keeping with the Mercedes-Benz "Real Life Safety"
philosophy, the focus in car-to-car crash tests was on compatibility with
substantially larger and heavier vehicles. The new smart vehicles performed
well in frontal collisions with the S- and C-Class.
