2008 Smart Fortwo Passion: Seeing Red

June 12, 2008

Armed with the advice given by many of my colleagues to shift our long-term Smart fortwo’s gears myself for an improved driving experience, I ventured forth. And I have to say that it is much, much better that way. Shifting the automated manual myself, I actually was able to enjoy myself in the little thing and relax enough to realize that I really like the Smart fortwo Passion’s bold orange-red interior, particularly the slightly nubby fabric that covers much of the dash. The little nubs catch the light and give it a bit of a sparkle, which just adds to the fun factor and suits the car’s personality... To me, it wouldn’t make sense to have a Smart dressed in understated tones like grey, black and beige (which are all available). This car is all about fizzy, pop-y candy colors.
