Smart ForTwo Passion Coupe--D&M Motorsports Video Test Drive 2012 Chris Moran
Smart ForTwo Passion Coupe Review with Chris Moran. Presented by D&M
The Smart Fortwo is an all-new brand and model in the United States for
2008, sold at a select number of United Auto Group and Mercedes-Benz
dealerships across the country.
Revolution, dud or something in between? The 2008 Smart Fortwo could be any
of these, but which one depends on how Americans respond to this
long-awaited city car as it starts to trickle into dealerships around the
country. The previous generation has sold more than 770,000 units in other
parts of the world since 1998, appealing to urban customers who gravitated
to its sky-high fuel economy and park-anywhere size. While most Americans
have probably seen a Smart car, only time will tell how many pick one as
their daily commuting partner.
Not that it comes as a news flash, but the Mercedes-built Smart is small.
Really small. It's more than 3 feet shorter than a Mini Cooper and only a
foot longer than an E-Z-GO golf cart. It seats only two people, with a
fair-sized trunk above the rear-mounted engine. Yet that silver or black
strip that loops around the Fortwo's side is what differentiates this
minicar from the E-Z-GO.
Known as the Tridion safety cell, this cage of high-strength steel allows
the Smart car to withstand impacts as well as or better than much larger
cars. An impressive array of other safety systems -- side airbags, antilock
brakes, brake assist, stability control and traction control -- add to its
ability to thwart occupant injury. Plus, axles placed close to the
passenger compartment provide additional protection in side impacts.
Other markets get diesel and turbocharged gasoline engines, but the
America-bound Fortwo will only come with a 1.0-liter three-cylinder
gasoline engine. Saddled with 71 horsepower, this powertrain
will be able to motivate the 1,804-pound Smart from zero to 60 mph in 14.1
seconds. The wonky five-speed automanual transmission found in the last
Smart car has been replaced by an allegedly improved one, which makes us
wonder how awful the predecessor was, considering the new car's herky-jerky
motions and extreme shift lag. After a quick drive, it will leave you
wondering how it's in any way superior to a traditional automatic or
In total, the Smart has just enough pep around town, but it feels woefully
lackluster (and a little worrisome) on the highway. But that's a pretty
good way to sum up the entire Smart Fortwo experience. For those who spend
90 percent of their driving time by themselves in traffic or meandering
through congested city streets, the Fortwo makes sense (as long as they can
put up with the wonky transmission). Its tiny dimensions make finding a
parallel parking spot a relatively simple exercise -- although the new
model is now too long to be parked perpendicularly on the street. Also,
speeds in the city should rarely get so high that the mere sight of a
Navigator makes you pack the dashboard with statues of St. Christopher.
But for those who routinely drive on the highway, the Fortwo just doesn't
make sense -- even if it gets excellent gas mileage. A similarly priced
subcompact will handle high speeds better; ditto the more expensive but
greener Prius. The 2008 Smart Fortwo isn't a good choice for most
consumers, but for certain urban-based drivers, it's most definitely worth
Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options
The 2008 Smart Fortwo is a two-seat, subcompact city car available in two
body styles. The hatchback Coupe is offered in Pure and Passion trim
levels, while the convertible Cabrio only comes in Passion. The base Pure
comes with 15-inch steel wheels, keyless entry, leather steering wheel and
electric rear window defroster. Power steering, air-conditioning, radio,
power windows and alloy wheels are optional on the Pure. The Passion gets
all those basic features, plus a panorama glass roof, sport steering wheel
with shift paddles, power heated side mirrors and a CD player. The Passion
Cabrio adds an upgraded stereo with MP3-compatible in-dash six-CD changer,
along with a manually operated canvas roof. Passion options include partial
leather upholstery and additional gauges.
Powertrains and Performance
The 2008 Smart Fortwo is powered by a 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine that
produces 71 hp and 68 pound-feet of torque. Surprisingly, it requires
premium fuel. The maximum speed is 90 mph, with a 0-60-mph time of 14.1
seconds. A five-speed automanual transmission drives the Fortwo's rear
wheels and is shifted without a clutch pedal via a simple console-mounted
stick (and column-mounted paddles on Passion models), and there is a fully
automatic mode as well. With its 8.7-gallon tank, the Fortwo will return 33
mpg city, 41 mpg highway and 36 mpg combined.
