car Smart City-Coupe

Previously shown as concept both the Smart Roadster and Roadster Coupe made international debut in production car at the Paris Motor Show, with their new logo

These two diminutive cars into a market niche that of the small sports such as the Mazda MX5, MG TF and MR2. This #145;micro car#146; niche was established by the Healey #145;Frogeye#146; Sprite of that led to the class defining MG of 1961-1979 and that only the Cappacino of 1991-1998 has since (in Europe).

The Roadster is 3427mm long, is just shorter than the Midget, but longer than the Cappucino and 2500mm City It#146;s 3 cylinder, 698cc, turbo charged, mid mounted is derived from the City and powers the car to a top speed of 112mph. It shares the City Coupe#146;s touch#146; 6 speed gearbox, is the reason for the blunted 0-62 of 11.9 seconds, 2 seconds the base MX5 with the same to weight ratio but a traditional

As well as sharing powertrain, the share 35% of their components the City Coupe and a lot of ideology and identity also.

The Tridion is as clearly apparent on the Roadster as it is in the Coupe, and runs down the rollover bar to graphically separate the area from the boot and at the rear, to sweep under the and punch into the front arch blister.

At the rear of the cars the Roadster and Coupe differ, the Coupe a glass paneled canopy lifts to reveal a usefully luggage space that also hold the lift out targa panels.

Inside the car is familiar Smart, many carry over New, clever, space details include the armrest on top of the handbrake and the tiny rubber that you grip to open the CD in the centre console.

Smart like they have a car in the Roadster. For 16,000 #150; Euros it will be the only sports car available on the market and undercut cars such as the Ford Ka. It will be cheaper to run second hand small cars and will offer levels of safety relative to micro sports cars. And the City Coupe, it is proportionally acceptable to the

market, its aesthetic is a little resolved and mature than the Coupe and it will sell from the off. I want
