Fun to Drive

Smart Fortwo is a joy to drive/park. I get smiles & waves everywhere I go. I'm short & the seat raises enough for me to see clearly above steering wheel. The sport shifting feature gives extra pep and smoothness in auto-shifting. Only criticism - I wish the moon roof was not as darkly shaded - would love option for more sun, as well as a pop up for fresh air. Christopher Peters explained all my options in my first leasing experience. He showed great patience in my wavering decision between a colorful model or a black-silver w-upgraded leather heated seats, audio-automated systems, moon roof. Chris also got me a great deal, was very friendly and not intimidating-pressuring. I give high marks for the MB Plano Dealership Team.

Bought 2016 "PRIME" for my wife since that model has heated seats which she likes. Performance a little sluggish form start, but once moving (about 10mph) it accelerates very well, compared with former models which were sluggish. 6 speed automatic not nearly as "clunky" as originals. Viewed youtube crash tests and as a former driver of race cars, really appreciate the all-around frame construction. Only minor problem is cracked plastic surround for shaft under shift knob, which should be replaced soon at dealer.

As Smart as the owner is.

Wrote this review because the last reviewer trashed this car undeservedly. I own a 2012 and have been looking to upgrade to a 2016. These cars are excellent performers, can beat a straight v6 sports car off the starting line, and much better on gas mileage than the EPA gives them credit for, I get 33-35 city and 48 hwy, especially if you take good care of your car. Plus you can't get a safer 2 seater. This car's passenger compartment is a race car worthy steel role cage, and it has side and front air bags and reinforced seat belts to boot.

I owned and 09, and loved that car. This new one stinks and is a real gas guzzler. I hate it! Will not by another one.
