Introduction

Completely redesigned, it was all-new for 2016, so the 2017 Smart ForTwo carries over unchanged.

The big news for this tiny car for 2017: Smart ForTwo Cabrio is back, with a power-controlled cloth roll-back top. It’s a teensy roadster.

This is the second year of a redesign of the Smart ForTwo that made it four inches wider and extended the wheelbase a touch, without making it longer. It also got more standard features and an array of options. There are four models, Pure, Passion, Prime, and Proxy.

Bottom line on Smart: If parking in tight spaces is your highest priority in owning a car, then Smart is for you. With a turning circle of 22.8 feet and length of 8.8 feet, the Smart ForTwo will squeeze easily into the small spaces of a big city. If you never need cargo space, the Smart is for you. If don’t mind paying for high-octane premium fuel to get 89 horsepower, the Smart is for you.

The Smart uses a turbocharged 0.9-liter three-cylinder engine mounted between the rear wheels and lying on its side. It makes 89 horsepower and 100 pound-feet of torque, with a 5-speed gearbox standard, or available 6-speed dual-clutch automatic. Smart says four out of five buyers take the automatic. It accelerates from zero to sixty in 10.1 seconds.

EPA-rated Combined city and highway fuel mileage is 35 miles per gallon.

We’re not sure why the Smart Fortwo hasn’t been crash tested by either the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). All models come standard with eight airbags, as well as electronic Crosswind Assist, which helps keep Smart straight in the wind. Forward-collision warning is available as an option.

We found the build quality to be good, with no squeaks or rattles. The Smart ForTwo is built in France.

Lineup

Smart ForTwo comes with power windows, central locking, LED daytime running lights, cruise control, power steering, steering-wheel controls, CD player, Bluetooth.

Walkaround

The Tridion safety cage determines the perky styling with snub nose. The short hood doesn’t slope so much, so from the driver’s seat it looks like a bigger car. Because it’s tall for its short length, and slab-sided except for a beltline bulge, and because wheels stretch the outside corners of the vehicle, it can sometimes appear to be wider than it is long.

The Cabrio retains the roof’s crossbar between the rear pillars, but the beams over the doors can be removed to expose more of the sky. The Smart trademarked Tridion safety cell is strong from the windshield along the roofline to the rear pillar wrapping the door.

It doesn’t really have a grille, just hexagonal holes in the sheetmetal in front. LED running lights make it appear it’s doing its best to be seen. The side windows have no frames, and the hatch is split horizontally, like the tailgate on an old-school SUV.

Interior

The second-generation Smart finally has a simple, modern interior that comes in a number of colors. There’s a small instrument panel behind the steering wheel, and a 3.5-inch color display with bits of information, as well as a touchscreen display at the central console with some knobs and dials. The tachometer is squeezed on top of the dash next to the windshield pillar.

The dashboard and door inserts are covered with a coarse-grained cloth surface, while the seats come in cloth or leather, with contrasting stitching available. You can turn the tiny cabin into your happy space, with the eight-speaker, 240-watt sound system. You could add smartphone integration, navigation system with real-time traffic and weather data, and the ability to turn things on and off in your car from a distance, using the Cross Connect app.

The seats are comfortable if a bit short, and they’re high so visibility is good. Surprisingly, there’s still ample headroom and adequate legroom, even for tall people. The engine sits under the high floor behind the seats, and there’s a retractable cargo cover behind the seats. Cargo space is 9.2 cubic feet, which is more than the Mini Cooper’s 8.7 cubic feet, and less than the Fiat 500 with 9.5 cubic feet.

Interior quality is not first rate and there is a lack of cargo/storage space. Two cupholders, small door pockets, a clever drawer under the center console that slides open into the passenger footwell. Instead of a spare tire there’s tire sealant with inflator, stored under a cover under the feet of the passenger.

The cabin is mostly quiet, except there’s tire noise when the road surface is coarse, and if you’re revving the engine real high, forget about having a conversation. Inconveniently, the Smart engine works best at high revs.

Driving Impressions

Compared to the previous Smart, the ride is great. The suspension soaks up way more bumps. Its acceleration is livable, at 10 seconds from zero to sixty. Its 89 horsepower and 100 pound-feet of torque are a huge increase over the 70 and 68 of the first-generation Smart. The handling is good, for a car with a high center of gravity, heavy rear end, and very short wheelbase. Mostly it feels secure at highway speeds; only one of our testers was terrified behind the wheel. Because the little engine has to push at and above 70 mph, passing semi-trucks on the freeway takes nerve and planning.

Would we take the Smart on a road trip? Sure. But that’s us.

We would be among the four out of five buyers who choose the dual-clutch 6-speed automatic transmission. The standard manual 5-speed has long throws and a loose gate, and because there isn’t much early torque, you have to slip the clutch some to get the Smart going. The engine is most responsive from 4000 rpm to redline 6500.

The shift points of the 6-speed dual-clutch are matched well to the engine.

The Smart grips well, on its 16-inch rear and 15-inch front tires. The electronic traction control is aggressive, because a car with dynamics like this can be tail-happy. You can’t turn it off. The internet is alive with a video of some fool and creative mechanical genius who put a 250-or-more-hp 1.3-liter turbocharged Suzuki Hayabusa motorcycle engine in a Smart.

When the Smart was widened, the wheelwells were reshaped to allow sharper turning, so you can make a quick U-turn in a city street to snatch that parking space on the other side.

Summary

The bar for the 2017 Smart isn’t that high. This latest version is way better than the old Smart. What the Smart has going for it is that some people find it cool and cute. Practically speaking, for $16,000, the cost of a bare-bones Smart, you can get a number of great cars with competitive fuel mileage.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
