Next-gen Smart ForFour spy shot during cold-weather testing

Next-gen Smart ForTwo spy shot during cold-weather testingSmart is continuing to test its upcoming ForFour (seen above) model and the replacement for the ForTwo (pictured at the right), this time doing some cold-weather work in Sweden.

As we've reported previously, the ForFour is an all-new vehicle, and it will have more in common with the smaller ForTwo than the short-lived last model that was co-developed with Mitsubishi. This ForFour is instead a collaborative project with Renault, and could spawn what will ultimately become the new Renault Twingo. Some reports have it that Renault is no longer interested in the Smart partnership, but the fact that these testers were wearing French plates and were spotted caravanning with a French-registered Dacia Duster adds a bit of circumstantial evidence that the match is intact.

The new ForTwo was also spied in these snowy environs. The two-seater is expected to be ready to roll before the ForFour – likely coming to market in 2014. The ForFour, meanwhile, might not show up until 2015.

Take a closer look at the ForFour and the ForTwo, in our galleries of spied photos.
