    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 ...

    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 ...

    Video: 2013 Smart ForTwo gets three bite-size new ads
    1347564600

    For such a Lilliputian car, the Smart ForTwo has giant staying power. The hatch that still gets wary glances is not only still kicking here in the U.S., it's done ten-straight months of year-on-year sales increases. That kind of sales trend calls for an ad campaign, and we have it in three new ...

    Smart USA doesn't take crap from anyone
    1340307000

    The minds at Smart USA took to Twitter to make a point about the manufacturer's tridion safety cell recently. Clayton Hove, who runs a snarky blog about advertising, joked that he "Saw a bird had crapped on a Smart Car. Totaled it," leaving the door wide open for Smart to work up a response. And ...

    Official: Smart ForTwo Iceshine won't make your hair look any better
    1339772460

    This must be a first: Smart has named its latest special edition ForTwo after a shampoo. Not really, but clearly someone at Daimler did not do due diligence (or use Google) before dreaming up the Iceshine moniker. The Smart ForTwo Iceshine is a special edition based on the model's Passion trim ...

    Geneva: Smart ForTwo Brabus Electric Drive is a black and green upgrade
    1331159940

    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 ...

    Official: Squint Really Hard: Smart ForTwo gets modest update
    1328124600

    Smart has put the ForTwo under the knife in an attempt to give the maligned A-segment vehicle a few more years of life.

    Detroit: Smart For-Us brings truckness to the urban jungle
    1326137220

    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 ...

    Official: Rinspeed expands capacity with Smart ForTwo-based Dock+Go concept
    1323280860

    Carmakers are constantly coming up with new innovations to advance the automobile. But, let's face it: most of them are rather evolutionary, rather than revolutionary. That's why, every once in a while, the auto industry needs some creative out-of-the-box thinking. And that's where Frank M. ...
