The Smart ForTwo is an odd duck, a strange little two-seater with a tiny engine. Its proportions are more applicable to a large appliance box than to a car, yet it manages to work well for city driving.
The Smart ForTwo is one of the most unique cars available. Its design works best in congested urban areas where parking spaces are at a premium. The car is available in a base model, or in two Passion variants, a hard top and a convertible.
The simple instrument cluster lacks a tachometer, something that would be useful when manually shifting the transmission. The cluster display shows the current gear, and has an indicator for when it should be shifted.
