Smart fortwo cabrio (2007-2014)

The perfect city car. The Smart fortwo cabrio is easy to drive, easy to park and cheap to run. On the open road however, where most convertibles are most at home, the Smart Cabrio is a bit of a fish out of water, with a bumpy ride and a feeling of vulnerability despite an excellent safety record. The new version is bigger and more refined in an attempt to tackle these problems. Its green credentials are also vastly improved. Its still nippy around town and it has a feeling of more surefooted stability on the open road.

The fortwo cabrio benefits from the tritop fabric folding soft-top. The fabric roof folds away automatically and can be operated at any speed should the weather suddenly change.

  1. Anna Lewis Anna Lewis says:

    “Smartest” car I’ve ever owned, real attention grabber with very good looks, very comfortable with all the “toys”.
    Fuel efficiency is incredible, only need small weekly top ups and a car with a small efficient & quiet engine, has a “can do” attitude no matter what the weather (Scotland)and will safely pass all the BMW,s & Mercs left stuck in the snow.
    My best buy ever .. I love it!!
