Averaging 36 MPG in heavy stop and go, bumper-to-bumper traffic. On the road I get mid-40's. With AC off I can average over 50 MPG at 55-60 MPH. If you currently enjoy driving / riding in a large luxury vehicle you will be disappointed. If you are looking for a fun to drive, small, easy to park, inexpensive, economical vehicle for mostly city driving and you have no need for more than 2 seats or a lot of storage, it will be difficult to beat the smart. This vehicle is not perfect - it is what it is!
fun to drive, great MPG, conversation piece, head turner
nearest dealer is 4 hours away - hope my local Mercedes Benz dealer becomes part of the smart network.
