The combination of breath taking performance, exclusivity, flexible interior space and driving pleasure makes the forfour BRABUS a class leader
As you would expect of DaimlerChrysler the build quality is excellent and the materials used are of a very high standard and should prove durable in the long term.
Value For Money
This is subjective, the £17,195 price tag might seem expensive but you are paying for the exclusivity of the smart BRABUS badge.
Of course you could buy a more practical car for less money but it is not going to be as thrilling to own and drive.
The smart forfour BRABUS certainly earns its description as a hot hatch - it is reminiscent of the Renault 5 GT Turbo - only better.
A BRABUS version of the smart forfour has been awaited with anticipation and it does not disappoint. Unlike its fortwo, roadster and roadster-coupe BRABUS stable mates the forfour BRABUS is a true performance model testament to BRABUS' expertise and is an on-road force to be reckoned with.
