The forfour from smart has been given a styling and performance upgrade, ensuring that it will remain a popular choice among urban motorists for its capable performance and compact dimensions, which make navigating the city simple and practical.
The manufacturer’s design team has reimagined the car’s exterior without losing sight of what made the previous iteration so admirable. The latest version includes elements such as a reshaped mesh front grille and more expressive headlamps, while the tail-lights are now contained within a single square unit. smart has retained the contrast coloured Tridion safety cell, which you can pair with a variety of stunning paint finishes for the body.
Inside, the cabin has been arranged to fit the forfour’s simple yet refined character. Circular vents sit on a dashboard constructed from various curving inlays, with multiple colours used here, too. A hi-tech mesh fabric covers the doors and dashboard, giving a futuristic feel while enabling the cockpit to stand up to everyday use. The centre console has been arranged with simplicity in mind, as many buttons and switches have been removed to make control of the forfour’s functions simpler and safer.
These functions include heated seats, an infotainment system with 3.5-display, smartphone integration and satellite navigation in the top-end model. Standard equipment includes electric windows, cruise control and a trip computer. Three separate trim grades – Passion, Prime and Proxy – are offered by smart so you can choose a model that meets your budget.
There’s also a choice of three engines, and each promises accomplished performance with no lack of power and minimal running costs. Starting the line-up is a 59bhp petrol, which is joined by a 1.0-litre 70bhp unit and a 900cc powertrain with 89bhp. A new suspension system makes the ride more comfortable, while reworked transmission means smoother gear changes, improved fuel efficiency and lower CO2 emissions.The robust Tridion safety cell is complemented by crosswind assist at no extra cost, and forward collision warning plus lane-keeping assist can be added as an optional extra.
