Get the best online car shopping experience with expert reviews of the Smart fortwo. Read more to learn about the most important features and important factors to consider when researching the Smart fortwo.
With a tiny passenger compartment, limited cargo room and underwhelming performance, the Smart Fortwo is never going to be a mainstream vehicle. But considering it can fit into almost any parking space and turn on a dime, it undoubtedly has niche appeal for consumers living in dense urban areas. Discover the ins and outs on used Smart fortwos, available now in Carvana's inventory.
Good Fuel EconomyThanks to its diminutive size, it should come as no surprise that the Smart fortwo is a hit at the gas pump. Boasting an EPA-estimated 36 mpg combined (34 mpg city/39 mpg highway) with the automatic transmission and 35 mpg combined (32 mpg city/39 mpg highway) with the manual, the Smart fortwo more than holds its own among small vehicle options. Please note, however, that the Smart fortwo requires premium unleaded fuel.
Distinctive Interior DesignThough far from palatial, the Smart fortwo actually offers both fairly decent interior space, and engaging interior design. And while the materials that comprise the interior may not be supremely upscale, the space has a modern and classy feel.
Perfect For City DrivingLive in an urban jungle? The Smart fortwo was tailor-made for helping you navigate the city. Due to its small size, the Smart fortwo can easily maneuver in and out of traffic and is a cinch to park in even the tiniest of spaces.
AccelerationHigh performance is not the Smart fortwo's strong suit, as the acceleration on this vehicle is rather sluggish. This is only exacerbated by a noticeable delay of full acceleration, even after flooring the gas pedal.
Ride QualityTraversing rough pavement is never a comfortable experience, but in the Smart fortwo, even the smallest bumps and ruts in the road can be felt. The vehicle's stiff suspension and lack of size and weight make it a bear to travel in when navigating rough stretches of road.
Rear VisibilityBecause of its small size, the Smart fortwo does offer very good outward visibility. However, due to the vehicle's low rear hatch, rear visibility is somewhat obstructed.
