The Top Gear car review: Smart ForTwo

£11,890£24,940
6/10
Overall verdict
Far, far better than the last one, but still likely to remain a niche purchase.
 

For: 

Vast improvement over the old ForTwo, better drivetrain

Against: 

Still too impractical for many, hardly cheap, design purity has been lost

Overview

What is it?

The all-new version of the most compact city car out there. Born of Smart’s tie-up with Renault, a marriage that’s also yielded a new ForFour and Twingo, the new ForTwo retains the 269cm length of its predecessor (despite the addition of a small safety-inspired ‘bonnet’) but gains 11cm in width
