2007 Smart Fortwo to start from €9,490
The German-American industrial conglomerate DaimlerChrysler has officially announced that the latest iteration of not-so-successful Smart Fortwo super mini is available to order for the European customers starting Monday January 15, 2007. Extremely popular among dwellers of European overcrowded cities that are known for their tight streets and lack of parking spaces, the car has finally been re-launched as an even more comfortable second-generation model.
The tiny vehicle will be delivered as a coupe and a cabrio and will be offered with a choice of four engines, including an oil-burner.
DaimlerChrysler plans to offer two naturally aspirated engines, delivering 61 and 71 horsepower respectively, a turbocharged engine, pumping out 84 bhp. There will also be a fuel-efficient, low-displacement CDI diesel engine with a maximum power output of 45 horsepower.
It is, probably, useless to ask, how
slowly fast the ForTwo crawls from zero to sixty but its fuel efficiency seems pretty interesting.
The turbocharged model takes only 4.9 liter of gasoline per 100 kilometers, while the 61 and 71 hp versions consume only 4.7 liters per 100 km. The diesel model is even more fuel-efficient with its normal consumption of 3.4 L/100km of diesel fuel.
The new Smart Fortwo will be available in April.
