Smart has announced its latest Smart cars, the Smart ForTwo and the Smart ForFour, as the names suggest, the Smart ForTwo is a two seat vehicle and the Smart ForFour is a four seat vehicle.
The two vehicles share similar design characteristics, and these new Smart vehicles come with a three cylinder engine from Mercedes, which comes with a five speed manual transmission or a twinamic automatic dual clutch transmission, the engines come with around 90hp.
“In the planning phase we were clear that we wanted to retain the rear engine for the new smart, so as to continue to exploit the vehicles’ strengths to the full in the city,” explains Jörg Prigl, head of the product group Compact Cars at Mercedes-Benz. “On this basis, we then developed the new fortwo and forfour together with our partner, Renault.”
“We are proud to have made the fortwo even safer and in sum more grown up whilst retaining its length of 2.69 metres,” adds Markus Riedel, head of development at smart. “In doing so we even reduced the turning circle to 6.95 metres and thus set a new benchmark. The fortwo shares its architecture with the new forfour; both cars are tailor-made for the requirements of modern city traffic.”
The pricing of the new Smart ForTwo will be similar to that of the current Smart model, the Smart ForFour will be around 600 Euros more. You can find out more details about these new Smart cars over at Daimler at the link below.
