The latest addition to the iconic smart fortwo range is certain to live up to its namesake - the edition highstyle.
Finished in trendy chocolate brown metallic and boasting a sumptuous, well-equipped interior, the edition highstyle takes the smart's distinctive look to a whole new level.
Available solely as a coupe and building on the range-topping passion specification, only 215 of the edition highstyle will be available in the UK - 180 featuring the 71bhp engine and 33 coming with a turbocharged 84bhp unit.
Complementing the edition highstyle's striking exterior finish are 12-spoke, 15" alloy wheels, a silver tridion safety cell and unique, aluminium-look 'highstyle' logos.
The fashionable theme continues inside. The spacious interior benefits from heated, leather metallic silver seats together with leather optic door inserts and upper and lower dashboards. Eyecatching matt-silver details add a stylish touch and the edition highstyle's driver enjoys a leather 3-spoke steering wheel with gearshift buttons and leather-trimmed gearknob at their fingertips.
The standard integrated audio and navigation system from Pioneer will be music to the ears of the edition highstyle's occupants and as well as offering Bluetooth wireless telephony, iPod and USB connectivity, the entertainment system also features full satellite navigation. Perfectly complementing the advanced head unit is the smart sound system, providing crisp sound reproduction thanks to its 2 tweeters, 2 mid-range speakers, subwoofer and smart MP3 interface.
The smart fortwo edition highstyle costs from £10,900 on the road.Published 1 October 2009
