New Smart fortwo from £6,900 (05/07/2007)

The new smart fortwo, priced from £6,900 on the road, goes on sale in Britain on 15 September.

The new car is even more comfortable, even more agile, even safer and even more ecological than its predecessor.  It retains its unmistakably iconic looks: the striking tridion safety cell that is also one of the main safety features and the innovative but practical plastic bodypanels, are still an essential part of the car that has become a familiar sight on British roads.

 

True to its philosophy of combining an exciting lifestyle product with environmental protection, smart is supporting the Live Earth concerts and “Save Our Selves – SOS” campaign against global warming.  smart is the only car manufacturer acting as an official partner of the Live Earth concerts taking place on 7 July 2007 and will be providing the shuttle service for artists and celebrities participating in Live Earth.

Dermot Kelly, Managing Director, Mercedes Car Group, said: “The new smart fortwo offers a solution to the problems associated with urban mobility and we need to have solutions like this if we are to face up to the issues around climate change.”  The new smart fortwo diesel has CO2 emissions of 88 g/km and offers the lowest CO2 emission of any vehicle on the market.

The car has new up-rated petrol engines, a newly developed transmission system, with five gears, which offers considerable advantages in terms of comfort, fuel economy and driving agility.  It is also slightly larger in size: the 7 inch (19.5 cm) increase in length has been used to give even better pedestrian safety and rear impact protection, as well as improved ride comfort.

The familiar equipment lines will continue to be available; pure, pulse and passion.
