The fortwo models are built around an immensely stiff and safe tridion safety cell, which provides outstanding crash protection in a car less than 2.7 metres long
All versions have electronic stability programme with hill-start assist, anti-lock brakes with electronic brake force distribution and Brake Assist, automatic air conditioning, electric windows, central locking with automatic locking when the car is in motion, speed-sensitive intermittent windscreen wiping, an electric tailgate release, a remote rear window release (coupé) or remote roof opening (cabrio) and a folding passenger seat with through-loading

The luggage compartment has a capacity of 220 litres, or 340 litres when loaded to the roof, while longer items can be carried by folding the passenger seat backrest forwards. The boot lid or lower part of the tailgate can be opened in tight parking spaces, which means it can be used as a loading platform capable of supporting up to 50 kg.
Its innovative design, recognised by the award of a red dot award in Germany and a place in the Museum of Modern Art in New York, ensures it provides practical, safe space for two people
A robotised gearbox on the smart fortwo gives the option of manual gear changes conducted by softtouch shift mechanism on the gearlever, or a softip mechanism which allows gear changes on the steering wheel paddles.
With clear design influences referencing the latest home interior trends, such as matt surfaces, distinctive colours and bold material combinations, the new smart fortwo BoConcept edition is the next step in the design cooperation with BoConcept, the Danish urban interior design specialist.
