Vehicle Description

The 2008 Smart Fortwo has, no joke, two different personalities behind the wheel. At city speeds of 40 mph or less, the 1,800-pound Smart feels very peppy around town due to its low gearing, peppy powertrain and quick-ratio steering. Although the transmission doesn't always shift smoothly, it's a fun car to drive on tight city streets, especially when it comes time to park.

But those same features that make it feel so in its element in the city--the quick steering, short wheelbase, and short overhangs--all work against the 2008 Smart Fortwo on the highway. Although the seating position is on the level of other cars, the lack of much car in front or behind the driver fosters a feeling of vulnerability--even if it is quite a safe car--while the steering and short wheelbase combine to create a choppier, busy ride with twitchy steering that's especially susceptible to crosswinds, bumps, and truck ruts. What's more, engine and road noise become prominent.

To the point, the Smart doesn't have the acceleration of most other vehicles; its 0-60-mph time of about 13 seconds is on par with economy cars of a couple decades ago. Fuel efficiency doesn't completely assure that the 2008 Smart Fortwo is worth the sacrifice if you're not planning to be in tight urban spaces most of the time; EPA ratings are 33 mpg city, 41 mpg highway.

Two different body styles of the 2008 Smart Fortwo are offered: a Coupe with a fixed roof, and a Cabrio model that has two removable roof panels that allow a more open-air experience. The Coupe is offered in two different trims, Pure and Passion. The Pure gets you only the most basic equipment, with not even a sound system, but it does have keyless entry, a rear defroster, and an outside temperature display. Most will want to upgrade to the Passion model, which gets flashier alloy wheels, a panorama roof, power windows, automatic climate control, and a two-speaker AM/FM/CD stereo. Top options include electric power steering (which isn't really needed on the Smart), heated seats, fog lamps, and a "premium" four-speaker sound system.
