    Paris: 2016 Smart Fortwo and Forfour show their smiling new faces [w/videos]
    1412359140

    The 2016 Smart Fortwo and Forfour are at the 2014 Paris Motor Show showing off their brand new looks for their latest generations, and the company hopes that an extensive list of changes can give the brand a much-needed boost. The redesign definitely gives siblings a personality while keeping Smart's traditional looks. These happy-go-lucky hatchbacks ...

    Video: Smart previews new city cars in teaser clip
    1404840600

    Smart has tried its darnedest to diversify. It introduced the Smart Roadster in 2003 and the Forfour in 2004. It even did the Crossblade speedster in 2002. But each of those has fallen by the wayside, leaving the Fortwo as its only product. But that's all about to change. After a long string of concept cars, the Smart brand is slated to introduce its ...

    Official: Smart Forjoy bounds in ahead of Frankfurt
    1378393260

    Smart has revealed its newest concept car, the jovial four-seater Forjoy. The "joy" part of that sobriquet is rather obvious ­– with the doorless, roofless, rear-glass-free concept looking like a beach-wagon full of fun ­– but it's the four seats that might prove most prescient as far as Smart's future plans are concerned. The German ...

    If you're a fan of Daimler's Smart brand, here is some potentially good news for you today. First, a pair of concept vehicles will be on display at the Frankfurt Motor Show next month previewing the next-gen Fortwo and Forfour models, and more interestingly, Daimler CEO Dieter Zetsche has stated that are no plans to offer a front-engine, front-drive ...

    Official: Smart shows production version of winged ForJeremy [w/video]
    1366588860

    The SmartForJeremy is a reality, a limited run of the haute couture Smart Fortwo being announced at the Shanghai Motor Show. It has been toned down for production since we first saw it at last year's LA Auto Show but its signature flourish, the wings, remain. Instead of replacing the brake lights, though, a smaller set of red-accented wings sit above ...

    Los Angeles: Fashion designer Jeremy Scott gives Smart Fortwo Electric some wing bling [w/video]

    If you were to gaze upon the Smart Fortwo Electric Drive and ponder what you might add to sort of, you know, set it off a bit, you probably wouldn't consider adding a pair of wings. That's because you are not Jeremy Scott. He, on the other hand, would do exactly that. And has. That's right, that winged wonder you see pictured above is not some sort of ...

    Paris: Smart Forstars Concept is a rolling drive-in movie theater in orange
    1348767000

    Smart tells us that its new Forstars Concept is a Sports Utility Coupé. We're pretty sure that's a misnomer. After all, the electric powertrain, while supremely efficient, isn't a powerhouse. Plus, with room for just two occupants and a golf bag plus toiletries, utility doesn't really seem to be its forte either. So, what is the Smart Forstars ...

    Official: Smart ForStars concept shows up ahead of Paris premiere

    Based on its last few concept cars, we can definitely see the styling direction that Daimler's Smart brand is taking. The new Smart ForStars concept, which will debut at the 2012 Paris Motor Show later this month, certainly builds on the themes we've seen, as well. While the Smart ForVision concept was a solid indication of the next-generation ForTwo, the ...

    If given the choice, we'd grab the keys to an all-electric Smart ForTwo way before its gasoline-powered sibling, if for no other reason than it would mean we wouldn't have to put up with that horrid automated manual transmission. But such faint praise isn't really fair to the Brabus Electric Drive. After all, it's got 80 horsepower on tap, which is plenty ...

    The Smart team looked to none other than actor/comedian/SNL-alum Jon Lovitz to introduce its pickup truck concept. We're not sure what is stranger: the other J-Lo at an auto show press conference or a Smart with usable bed space. The Smart For-Us concept features a 75-horsepower electric motor that twists up 98 pound-feet of torque. The battery is a 17.6 ...
