Americans and Canadians had to pour one out for microcar brand Smart earlier this year. Daimler officially announced after a decade that the pint-size cars would leave the market. But, at home in Europe, the Smart car lives on.
From the rear, this is still very much a Smart, but the fancy taillight treatment does spice things up a bit. It's hard for me to fall in love with the Fortwo proportions, however. You either love it or hate it, but at least the car owns it.
For the first time, the Fortwo and Forfour don't share a corporate face either. Instead of the perky face found on the Fortwo, the Forfour gets a somewhat more aggressive face with a different lower grille and headlights angled in a different fashion.
