2011 smart fortwo pure coupe 2dr Hatchback (1.0L 3cyl 5AM)


I don't own one of these, but I use Car2Go in Austin, which is a car sharing company that uses only Smart cars. I was so surprised how fun this thing is to drive, even out of the city and on the highway. For only 75hp, this thing really goes quickly. Great interior space as well. But Edmonds cons are spot on. That transmission is pretty harsh, and that break pedal is hard to get used to at first. It feels like it's not going to stop.

Best Features

Zippiness and how nimble it is. Definitely has the fun factor. Great city car! Space is great. Great mileage. Good use of space too.

Worst Features

Something really needs to be done about the transmission, just not a CVT. Just maybe retune it? Or I would love to see them put a manual transmission in it.
