    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. ...

    Official: Smart For-Us pickup making its world premiere at the Detroit Auto Show
    1323268200

    The lads and lasses at Smart have teased numerous different versions of their urban two-door in an effort to get more Americans to pay more attention to it. Car2Go is a worthy attention getter, and the Smart For-Us concept might be another, because who among us red-blooded U.S. of A'ers doesn't ...

    Frankfurt: Daimler gets in on the electric bicycle game with Smart E-Bike
    1314052320

    Cars don't get much smaller than the Smart ForTwo, but that, apparently, still isn't small enough for Daimler. So after having unveiled electric scooter and bicycle concepts at the Paris Motor Show last year, the Smart brand has announced plans to putting the latter into production in time for ...

    1313519400

    The third-generation, 2012 Smart Fortwo Electric Drive ditches its 16.5-kWh Tesla-engineered battery pack in favor of a 17.6-kWh unit manufactured by Deutsche ACCUmotive and, in the process, gains a much needed boost in acceleration, top speed and a slight increase in range. Scheduled to ...

    Mercedes will try to resuscitate Smart with new execs, ads, incentives
    1310562000

    The Smart brand has been in flux for the last few years. Sales have fallen off a cliff from the days when the Penske Group moved nearly 25,000 units in 2008. In 2010, just 5,927 Smart ForTwos went home with new owners. Mercedes-Benz had enough of watching sales submarine, and plucked back ...

    Smart Fortwo gets the deluxe treatment from Boxfresh
    1307744940

    Hard as it might seem to believe from its decidedly more spartan packaging, the Smart ForTwo is made by the same people responsible for the Maybach limousine and countless Mercedes-Benz luxury automobiles. But as seems to be the craze these days, the Daimler city car division has teamed up with ...

    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 – ...

    Vilner updates Smart Fortwo [w/videos]
    1305916140

    The 2011 Smart Fortwo, despite all its trying, is a car that needs all the help it can get. True, a big part of the car's problem is that it just doesn't make very much sense for the American market. That said, it's underpowered, uninspiring to drive, terrifying on the highway, and not ...

    Forbes has released its 2011 Worst Cars on the Road list, and the outcome is not pretty for American manufacturers. With the exception of the 2011 Mercedes-Benz S-Class, the 2011 Smart ForTwo and the 2011 Nissan Titan, the cars on the list are all American-made. Worse than that, they all come ...
