Sound too sporty to be green? Well, the cityflame still features the brand’s barely adequate 3-cylinder engine with 70 horsepower and 68 lb-ft of torque. And with a 0-60 time of 12.9 seconds and a top speed of 90 mph, you will still wonder why your smart car only gets 36 EPA-rated combined mpg. But we love the infinite customizable options on the new generation of smart cars, and can’t wait for their electric drive [7] tech to outpace their tiny engines. The car will hit showrooms this summer, but for now check out all the cute smarts on display in Detroit in our gallery, and tell us what color combo you would pick.
