the scoop

Hello Insiders! 

We are weeks away from the premier of the C453 at the New York Auto Show. This new generation of smart has so many features worth bragging about. One that we are especially excited for is the cross connect app. The cross connect app turns a driver's smart phone into a dynamic information and multimedia system. In contrast to the smart drive 2 app, cross connect includes a guidebook, car info and the ability to control your in-car radio. 

Car Info provides users with up to the minute info on their driving habits. Sensors can track everything from fuel efficiency to G Force, as well as detect and monitor your speed limit. Guidebook includes geo-filtered access to smart spots (smart-sized parking spots) and public parking lots. Music options are organized by cross connect's media system. In addition to being able to control the regular AM/FM radio within your smart, the app allows you to play music stored on your smart phone and also links you to AUPEO! AUPEO! is a music subscription service for smart owners that allows you to create saved playlists based off genre, artist or featured stations. Users with a basic account can listen up to 10 hours of music per month and those with premium accounts have unlimited access. The app is able to sync with your smart directly via a Bluetooth connection and is available for both iPhone and Android devices. 

The most important aspect of the cross connect app is that it represents one more way to truly personalize your smart driving experience. It is our intent to not only provide owners with the best in mechanical mastery, but also empower them to be better informed when heading out on the open road. We are eager to hear your feedback when the app becomes available national-wide. 

Until then, 

Adam Green, Product Management

"Thanks; there's a smart USA press release floating around that answers a couple of the questions.  Top speed is reportedly 96 mph and it appears there will be a Pure model with steel wheels. "
