2008 Smart Fortwo Passion Coupe: Not Just Great For Parking

May 19, 2009

I was headed to a restaurant for some takeout on Sunday, and I wound up overshooting the place by about two blocks (it was my first time at that particular restaurant). In other words, I had to make a u-turn. I can't think of a better vehicle in which to execute this maneuver than the Smart, with its teeny-tiny 28.7-foot turning circle. Doesn't get much better than that.

That experience underscores the thing I like most about the Smart: its nimbleness. I know it's not much, but there's so much to hate on with the Smart that you kinda have to give praise where praise is due.
