The small Smart Fortwo is one of the best cars you can buy if you live in a tight urban space, like San Francisco or New York. Now it's even better, since Smart just unveiled the all-new 2016 Fortwo at the New York International Auto Show. Even with its small footprint, the new Smart Fortwo offers more space and more equipment than ever before.
At just 8.8 feet long, the Smart Fortwo is at home in any crowded city. With its short overhangs, minimal length, and even smaller turning radius, the new Fortwo can easily fit in just about any parking space. Compared to the last generation Fortwo, the all-new Fortwo gets a new more expressive design language, but it is still instantly recognizable as a member of the Smart family with its trademark headlamps, front grille and the iconic tridion safety cell.
Just like the last Fortwo, the 2016 model will have an engine positioned in the back. The updated Fortwo is powered by a turbocharged three-cylinder engine that generates 89 horsepower and 100 lb-ft. of torque. Buyers can choose from a five-speed manual or six-speed dual clutch transmission. Smart has not announced the pricing for the 2016 Fortwo.
