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


Midsized car seating is comfortable , visibility to front and sides is good to the rear it is poor . the interior layout is good as are the basic cd and A/C . Steering and handling are responsive and with a small turning circle as you would expect. Corners well . Winds of 50 mph will nudge the car but you still have control. Engine is minimally audible from inside even at high rpm . The transmission I would compare to a motorcycle being shifted without the clutch but in an excellently smooth manner . so that eventually you basically shift with the accelerator . actually fun and smooth no complaints. Power delivery depends on the drivers ability to master shifting. Can be driven on highways .

Best Features

It is a fun car to drive . Yet has a comfortable interior. And Power is surprisingly adequate. The transmission is what makes the car fun. Much faster than you would expect thanks to the transmission . Parking is a cinch.

Worst Features

Rear visibility. Center console and rear cover standard. Easier engine latch cover. Include ratchet and jack for wheels. Offer spare tire. Blue hid's. Factory installed Glass tint option. Rear disk brakes. H rated tires. Bigger rear window. Better latching for hood. No deductible on extended warranty .
