2008 smart fortwo passion 2dr Hatchback (1.0L 3cyl 5AM)


I was averaging 38-40 MPG around town, the last 2 fill-ups were 42.9 & 45.6 MPG. Fun to drive, draws lots of questions. Transmission is electronically shifted 5 speed manual (no clutch pedal). It takes a few days to learn when to let it shift automatically or when to use the paddles to shift it yourself. I am totally satisfied and have recommended the car to all that ask.

Best Features

Interior room, I am 6'3" & 250, fun to drive handles great, and of course the 40+ MPG is just gravy....

Worst Features

Tilt Steering Wheel and donut spare as factory options.
