The appearance of Smart 2 changes very much from that of Smart 1. The nose so important for emergency contact with pedestrians is no longer an acquired taste. The exaggerated rear wheel track of the old Smart no longer exists. It is even smaller than the in front. However, the new Smart carries behind even broader tyres.

The top folds electrically backward. But you have to remove the side struts then by hand. The fit in a compartment of the rear door, but takes 10 liters of luggage space, even if they are mounted. The rear window is flexible and not heatable.

The manufactorer calls it a 'convertible soft top'. Although one could be doubtful if this construction fullfills the definition of a convertible. Somehow the free view to the sky without struts is possible, but you have to look for the right position intently. And then the prices. There are 3,000 euros more if you compare it to a 'normal' Smart with the same configuration.

The video below starts with Mercedes advertising. Incidentally, a sign that the mother finally accepts the not entirely illegitimate child. Still other disadvantages? Yes, about 100 kg more he has on the ribs. If accelerating the Smart cabrio is not faster than a normal Smart with 8 kW (11 HP) less. And the maximum speed is always the same, because limited.

Even the maximum load has suffered. The luggage space is so small that you will not find the warning triangle and first aid kit in your new car. You have to order it for an extra charge of 33 Euro. After all, you shoud choose for an enhanced tank. The 60 Euro are well spent. Because the consumption is probably not proportional to the length or the engine power of the Smart.

Trash-talked enough. Who swoons about the car and the awareness of life that it sends out can anyway not be prevented from shifting towards such a car. After all, one is itself removing from the Renault Twingo in double sense, because there is neither a convertible nor a two-door version, but you get the four-door even more favorable. 02/16
