Still in the testing phases of the next-generation Smart Fortwo and the new Forfour model, Smart could also be planning a new crossover to reach into a more mainstream vehicle segment. According to Auto Express, soon after the redesigned Fortwo arrives in 2014, the Smart lineup will grow to include the other two models by 2015.

As expected, the renderings of the new Fortwo, Forfour and the unnamed Smart SUV are inspired heavily by recent concepts like the 2011 Forvision Concept and the 2012 Forstars Concept (pictured above). One interesting note is that Auto Express says both the Fortwo and Forfour will offer a removable tablet as a center stack display screen. The report says that while these cars were developed alongside the Renault Twingo, the French automaker will only be using the larger of the two hatchbacks for its new model.

This, reportedly, won't be the only tie up between Daimler and Nissan-Renault, though, as Smart also looks to add a new crossover based on the next-generation Nissan Juke, which could arrive by late 2015.

      Would have bought one long ago for SF if they had a real manual transmission. I can always give it more power but i can't fix the stupid tranny.

        I'm surprised no one has come up with a manual shift conversion kit yet. The transmission for a modern Mitsu Colt should bolt up to the engine. The latest gen shares the same engine. Or bypass the transmission control and convert the current tranny to manual controls.

      I don't know what happened but there are Smart Cars all over Vegas now with new plates on them. Do they have some sort of special deal going on? Not my type of car, but, nice to see folks driving tiny cars 'round town instead of the huge SUVs we use to have everywhere during the boom.

      Wow I can't believe all the bad response. I think this car need not be a concept but at the dealership right now. I think this car is a perfect match generation Z drivers who don't care much for cars such as Mustangs and M6.

      When I first saw the picture I thought it was a new Cars character. That said, I kind of like it!
