Photos: Smart Fortwo

The first Smart Car models go on sale in the United States this week. Manufactured by Mercedes parent Daimler AG, the two-seater Fortwo is powered by a 1-liter, 71-horsepower engine. CNET Car Tech recently visited Rome, the Smart Car capital of the world, getting a glimpse into what we might expect our streets to look like soon if this little car makes it big over here.
