The smart forfour was launched in the UK on the 1st September 2004. According to smart, the forfour 'combines the functional appeal of a small car with the emotional appeal of the smart brand'.
The innovative smart brand is renowned for its individuality and with the introduction of the forfour customers are offered a choice of petrol or diesel engines, manual or 6-speed 'softouch plus' transmissions, 4 or 5 seats and a range of colour combinations and trim levels making the forfour a truly individual car.
In June 2005 smart launched the forfour BRABUS the most powerful production smart yet which combines awesome power with an exclusive finish. We tested the forfour BRBAUS to find out if it gets our pulses racing.
