09-reg Hybrid/Alt, Owner for Less than a year

Smart Cabriolet -third one I've owned. New design a little bit better a little bit missing character but it's new. Would try to buy one without MHD as it does not suit my style of driving -who sits with their foot brakes and LIGHTS on at lights Stop signs etc??? Not courteous Advanced Drivers who anticipate.
The power steering should be STANDARD never mind a difficult to find option - does not stop the feel of road!

smart is a nice little car, 84bhp version very quick and other drivers are often startled by how it leaves them standing, even on the open road. Needs power steering for low speeds, but fine on the move. economy quite a bit poorer than expected, but it is quick. Not the joke that many people think - the laugh is on those who drive unnecessary, large fast cars and I own a Range-Rover too!

Having owned the previous generation of the fortwo I was pleasantly surprised by how much of a step forward in performance, comfort and build quality smart achieved without significantly increasing the price of the car.

What more could you want. A fun, stylish and cheeky car that would suit most people. Draws plenty of attention and is bloomin cheap to run. Handles motorway speeds with ease and is like the tardis inside.

Its a whiz to drive and gets great milage returns. It doesn't feel at all like a 2 seater.Although interior quality isn't that great I love the design.

No issues at all. Fuel is quite disappointing, was one of the main reasons I bought it.
