Sorry to republish this post, but all official highrez shots, video and SMART's press release have been added after jump.
After a few
of the new SMART
, we have here the full catalogue of official shots showing the U.S.-bound city car for 2007. The changes made to the car are actually substantial, though extremely subtle. The fortwo has grown in all dimensions and now sits at 2.69 meters (8.82 feet) long. It will also be powered by a bigger, three-cylinder motor that's a full liter in size and available with 61, 71 or 84 bhp. A
option will be offered that generates 45 bhp, and the only tranny choice for any engine is a five-speed manual. SMART is also fitting the new fortwo with a "stop & go" system that cuts the engine at red lights much like a
. Safety will be a big priority as well, with each fortwo stocked with front airbargs, ABS and ESP.
We also get to see the interior in this batch of photos and, aside from a steering wheel that looks like it was lifted right out of the '80s, the diminutive domicile looks pleasant enough and not as cramped as one might expect.
Check out a full gallery of shots after the jump.
