smart city-coupe passion
Cute/quirky/brilliant. Initially I had my reservations about the smart car but that was all thrown out of the window on driving it. You soon forgot the size of the car and got used to the automatic gear box (SOFTOUCH) with manual gear-changing mode (SOFTIP). The car was truly fun to drive. My first attempt at parking was a hoot as I found myself with about 5ft of space to spare.
I knew from my first drive that I was not going to want to give the smart car back.
