Mercedes-Benz

Small on the outside, big on the inside.

The size and agility of the smart car range is what sets it aside from its counterparts. As the saying goes, good things come in small packages.

Because it is so in tune with the demands of the city, the smart fortwo has revolutionised urban driving. Here are just some of the reasons why:

Never an uphill struggle.

Hill Start Assist

Hill start assist prevents the vehicle from rolling backwards when moving off on a hill. The system is part of esp® and maintains the brake pressure when the driver moves their foot from the brake pedal to the accelerator pedal.

Manoeuvrability and Handling.

The smart fortwo: 1.66m diameter.

Measuring just 2.69-metres in length, the fortwo has a turning circle over two feet tighter than the benchmark established by the London black cab at just 6.95m from kerb to kerb.

The city slicker.

smart fortwo suspension

The smart fortwo is designed to take road unevenness in its stride. With suspension springs specially configured for the demands of city streets, you’ll reach your destination safely and feeling relaxed.

Small, but fantastically strong.

Tridion Safety Cell

Formed of ultra-high strength steel, the tridion safety cell grants the car immense strength. It’s joined by esp®, Crosswind Assist and a total of five airbags to make the fortwo one of the safest small cars on sale today.

Getting you into (and out of) a tight spot.

The smart fortwo: 2.7m in length.

With a length of just 2.69 m it’s not difficult to find a parking space for the smart fortwo. And now it’s even easier: Thanks to the high seat position with good all-round visibility you’ll spot free parking spaces even more quickly.
