2009 model year changes

The Smart fortwo, a model that has found a loyal following among European city-dwellers, is available in the U.S. for 2009 in two different body styles, a coupe and a convertible. According to Smart, the new models feature slightly more interior space, adding that the car's two seats are now more comfortable. Door nets replace solid storage areas on the driver and passenger doors. The front fascia has been redesigned to meet new pedestrian safety regulations. Two new exterior colors are available: sporty rally red and elegant gray metallic. Light yellow and red metallic have been discontinued. Also standard is a "loose gas cap" indicator.

Special features for 2009

The 2009 Smart fortwo is built by Mercedes-Benz and comes in three different trim levels: Pure (coupe only), Passion, and the new, higher-performing Brabus limited edition. All trims have an unbelievably short total length of 106 inches. It will fit into small gaps in traffic and park with ease in even the tightest spots. Still, legroom is ample, with an extra 6 inches more than 2008 provided for the passenger seat, which also folds flat for added cargo space. Fuel economy is impressive: all models achieve a combined mileage estimate of 36 mph.
