smart has released the prices and specifications for the new fortwo and forfour line-ups before they go on sale early next year. The two-seater fortwo will go on sale for £11,125 and four-seater forfour will start at £11,620.
smart fortwo (MY-2015)
The fortwo is available with the choice of two petrol engines, with 71 hp and 90 hp power outputs and will feature five-speed manual transmissions. With the option a six-speed dual clutch transmission for an additional £995.
According to official figures the 71 hp fortwo is capable of 68.9 mpg on the combined cycle with CO2 emissions of 93 g/km (zero rated for VED) – the top speed is 94 mph. The more powerful 90 hp turbocharged version returns 67.3 mpg, emits 97 g/km and has a top speed of 96 mph.
smart point out that at 2.69 m long it is more agile than before with a 6.95m kerb to kerb turning cycle which is better than a London taxi.
