Smart Really Coming to U.S. in 2008

We don’t really believe it, but it seems the Smart brand actually is bringing its next generation ForTwo to the U.S. Last week, the presidents of Smart and the United Auto Group agreed on all the specifics to distribute the Smart brand in the U.S. The two signed an agreement making it all official, and even stated that Smarts will go on sale here in early 2008.

Smart is saying the next ForTwo is “absolutely the right car in the right place at the right time.” However, we’re seeing interest in new subcompacts dwindle along with gas prices and don’t think the Smart will be as alluring as the new Mini Cooper was when it debuted in the U.S. What do you think? Will Smart boom or bust in the States?
