Smart 4

The scope of supply of the new Smart then includes also wider tyres rear, actually only at supercars usual because of course it makes difficult the tyre exchange or purchase. Very commendable, however, the system 'Trust' which also includes the necessary ESP. In the next version it is also called that way.

The braking action is supported, but not the steering. Which has been already designed more indirect in the context of protection against tipping over, which of course does not quite fit to a city car. Whereas the steering forces are not so unpleasant noticed in a vehicle with rear engine.

Only 8.5 m turning circle are in the city very pleasant.

The spring system is a little harder to compensate the pitching, favored by only 1.8 m wheelbase. The automatic gear changing also uses here in certain situations a sliding clutch instead a short changing down. Overall, not very long durability guaranteeing what the engine is also accused.

Meanwhile, the kerb weight is increased again. However, also the noise comfort has further improved and if you do not look rear, you yourself can already feel like in a car of the compact class. In addition, the rear engine has the advantage of the more compliant front, which makes better the transmission of delays in case of an accident. 09/13               Top of page               Index
