DROOOOOOOOL!!!!!!!!! Lookin' good!
ShawnTX saidMy sofa is wider than the Smart car is long.
smalltownboy saidThe Smart you buy in Europe and even Canada isn't the same Smart you buy in the USA....the American market Smart is heavier, seven inches longer and 2 inches wider, the 3 cylinder diesel was replaced with a 3 cylinder gasoline engine that requires premium gas and the instrumentation was changed too.
It seems to have caught on big-time in the gayborhoods of Dallas, though I can't get past the styling myself, I'm happy to see another alternative choice on the market in the USA...from the two people I know personally that have bought them, they love them, though they admit they're not getting the gas mileage they'd hoped for....both of them told me they're getting around 31 to 32 mpg....which isn't any better than my sister's 4 door Yaris or what my Mini Cooper S (I no longer own) got.
I will give it credit, it's done quite well in Insurance Crash tests....but still each time I see one parked in a parking lot, I want to walk over and turn it on its side.
