Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2019 Smart EQ ForTwo?

Built by Mercedes-Benz and available as a coupe or soft-top convertible, the all-electric Smart EQ ForTwo minicar seats two. A 17.6-kilowatt-hour battery pack powers an 80-horsepower electric motor that drives the rear wheels. Competitors include the Nissan Leaf, Volkswagen e-Golf and Fiat 500e.

What's New on the 2019 Smart EQ ForTwo?

Previously known as the ForTwo Electric Drive, the EQ ForTwo gets a new 120-volt charging cable this year.

What Features in the 2019 Smart EQ ForTwo Are Most Important?

Standard features include cruise control, power windows, Bluetooth streaming audio, LED daytime running lights and a 7.2-kilowatt onboard charger. Options include leather upholstery, a heated steering wheel, a JBL stereo, navigation and Android Auto smartphone connectivity.

Should I Buy the 2019 Smart EQ ForTwo?

With its limited range, small size and two-person cabin, the cute EQ ForTwo is a niche car designed for bustling metropolitan environments. It's fun to drive in the city and an absolute breeze to park. Its eligibility for a $7,500 federal tax credit is another plus. The EQ ForTwo's small size, however, becomes a liability outside of urban centers as the car feels too small for suburban roads. We also wish the cabin design was more inviting.

Smart EV Owner x3

by Minotaur1066 from Palmer, MA on June 20, 2019

I have not had to buy gasoline to commute for the last five years. It is unfortunate that Smart has withdrawn from the North American car market. I have owned a 2013 Smart ED and currently have a 2017 ... Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
