Vehicle Overview
The two-seat Smart ForTwo arrived at U.S. dealerships for the 2008 model year as a tiny runabout groomed for city streets and tight parking. It comes in basic Pure, better-equipped Passion and drop-top Cabriolet trim levels, but its novelty rules out a rigid set of competitors.

New for 2009
The Passion now comes with a solid-roof option — last year's had only a panoramic see-through panel — though getting the solid roof won't save you any money. Other changes are minor.

Built on a 73-inch wheelbase, the rear-wheel-drive ForTwo measures just 106 inches long — more than 3 feet shorter than a Mini Cooper, the next shortest car on the market.
  • 15-inch steel wheels (Pure)
  • 15-inch alloy wheels (Passion, Cabriolet)
  • Contrasting colors along framework around passenger compartment
  • Fully powered convertible top (Cabriolet)
  • Optional fog lights

Smart markets the car as offering an unexpectedly large cabin for its shrink-wrapped size. The front seats boast 45.4 cubic feet of passenger volume, about 4 cubic feet smaller than the front-seat volume in a Chrysler PT Cruiser.
  • Standard fold-flat front passenger seat
  • CD stereo (Passion, Cabriolet)
  • Power windows (Passion, Cabriolet)
  • Optional heated leather seats (Passion, Cabriolet)
  • Panoramic roof (Passion)
  • Optional air conditioning (standard on Passion, Cabriolet)

Under the Hood
The ForTwo uses a three-cylinder engine with an automated-manual transmission that can be left in automatic mode or shifted with paddle shifters.
  • Standard 71-horsepower, 1.0-liter three-cylinder with 68 pounds-feet of torque
  • Standard five-speed auto-manual transmission
  • Optional power steering
  • Top speed of 90 mph

Safety features include:
  • Standard front and side-impact airbags
  • Standard disc/drum antilock brakes
  • Standard traction control and electronic stability system
