VW City Car
When Volkswagen announced its trio of up! concepts in 2007 even the smallest model was considerably larger than the diminutive Smart ForTwo. The first up! concept was (nominally, at least) a four seater, while the Smart is strictly for two. AutoCar is reporting that VW has decided to green light the development of a shorter two-seat variant to directly compete with the Smart. Unlike the upright ForTwo, the VW is expected to be lower and narrower, resulting in better aerodynamics than the Smart.
