the scoop

Hello Insiders,

As you may have heard, the all-new 2016 smart fortwo has just debuted at the New York International Auto Show! The Javits Center is already filled with smart fans who are ready to view the new car and its features up close. If you're one of the fortunate individuals who will be there in person, we've gathered a list of top specs that you can keep in mind while exploring.

Safety has always been a top priority for us and the C453 is no exception. In addition to a plethora of standardized safety assets, the new smart fortwo will come with standard Crosswind Assist and an optional Proximity Warning Function. Crosswind Assist enables a smart to compensate for strong gusts of wind by activating ESP sensors that trigger selective braking if a car is being pushed off-course. Proximity Warning Function serves as an extra set of eyes that alerts you if there is a spatial risk of collision.

If you're looking to do figure eights around your block, you'll love the C453's turning circle. The car's short overhang, variable ratio steering system and small size means it can easily make a U-turn between curbs that are just 22.8 feet apart.

Besides the cross connect app that allows for hands-free phone calls and audio streaming, our smart will come with a custom 8 speaker set and removable trunk subwoofer designed exclusively for smart by JBL.

Finally, under the hood of the car you will find a state-of-the-art three-cylinder rear engine and brand new turbocharger that creates a power increase up to 89hp and 100 lb-ft. of torque. Additionally, our automatic transmission has been replaced with two options: a five-speed manual transmission or a six-speed dual clutch twinamic transmission.

Below you can find our latest gallery of images. And, if any of this info leads you to further questions, please tune in to our Live Chat Thursday, April 2nd, at 5 PM EST where I will be fielding remarks personally.

- Eric Angeloro, smart Marketing Head

Lady Driven:Living with the 2015 smart ForTwo Electric Drive Coupé!

I did it. I survived a week with an electric vehicle. I didn’t blow the house up, electrocute myself or get stranded by the side of the highway with a dead battery. Life is good. Electrifying even.I pick up the 2015 smart fortwo electric drive coupé car on a blustery, rainy day. A caution sign on the MacKay bridge warns drivers to reduce speed because of extreme high winds.Great. The tiny two-seat smart car and I are going to be mercilessly flicked off the high bridge into the harbour below…See More
