    Spy Shots: Smart Fortwo spied with production-ready body
    1383516300

    Fans of super-minis, take note - here's your first look at the all-new Smart Fortwo. The teensy, tiny city car skipped out in full camouflage, but lacking any shape-hiding body cladding. Immediately noticeable is just how tiny it is. It looks even smaller than the Smart Fortwo that's on the road now, but that's merely an optical illusion - it's not as ...

    1349127000

    In the U.S., we've come to know the Smart brand just for its ForTwo, but other markets have seen a wider variety of models from the Daimler brand including the Smart ForFour that was produced from 2004 through 2006. This bigger vehicle from Smart added two extra doors and a rear seat for some passenger space. While we've already seen spy photos for the ...

    Video: Brabus teases new Smart concept, we scratch our heads
    1307055540

    Of all the auto marques on the market, Smart isn't exactly the first we'd associate with high performance. That's where Brabus comes in. The longtime Mercedes-Benz tuner has emerged as something like Smart's own AMG – that is to say, the factory-approved tuning house of choice – offering an array of aftermarket accessories for the diminutive ...

    Spy Shots: Smart ForTwo+2 in the works?
    1259693940

    Smart, the German-born automaker that revived the stagnant microcar market in the first place, has seen itself fall behind in the city car wars with Toyota's oh-so-clever iQ taking the top spot with its extra space for passengers and packages via its brilliant layout. What's more, new machines are on the way from BMW (the long-rumored Isetta revival) and ...

    Wise Choice: The not-so-Smart ForMore SUV that never was
    1241549940

    Nearly every automaker on the planet has suffered from bouts of over-reaching and Smart is hardly an exception. Daimler's micro-car division succumbed to the desire to fill every conceivable niche a few years back, unsuccessfully adding roadsters and four-door models to its iconic two-door city car. But before the Smart Roadster and ForFour were sent off ...

    For at about the last six months there have been at least four Peugeot 107s running around in the vicinity of Livonia and Ann Arbor, MI with manufacturer plates. Since Peugeot doesn't sell their products in the United States, it was unclear why they were here. It turns out the 107, along with its stablemate the Citroen C1, are built as part of a joint ...

    Smart has announced, yet again, that they'll be debuting their new fortwo in Detroit next month. Our heart rate remains... unchanged. And word that a cabrio version of DC's city car is on its way doesn't come as much of a surprise either.However, what does escalate our pulse is the possibility of Brabus hotting-up the fortwo with a 110 HP motor that would ...

    DaimlerChrysler "leaning toward" launching Smart in the U.S.
    1149609720

    Those were the less-than decisive words of DaimlerChrysler Chief Executive Dieter Zetsche in a newspaper interview published Sunday in Germany.
