2011 Smart ForTwo Cabriolet

The Good A compact design makes the 2011 Smart ForTwo an excellent urban vehicle, and its unique looks make it instantly identifiable. Smart offers an iPhone app to replicate many cabin tech functions.

The Bad Both brakes and steering require a lot of effort. The transmission takes too long with its gear changes, which leads to serious power dips while accelerating.

The Bottom Line The 2011 Smart ForTwo is one of the most unique cars on the road, but works best in an urban environment.
