THE SMART range has gone from strength to strength with the new Forfour
This is the first SMART with four seats and five doors; first SMART with a diesel engine in the UK; first manual gearbox in a SMART and featured in the first UK terrestrial TV advertising campaign
Customers can choose from a range of five powerful engines, including two responsive diesel engines built by Mercedes-Benz.
The lively 1.1-litre, three-cylinder petrol engine in pulse trim is available from £8,995, rising to £12,370, for the three-cylinder 1.5 cdi (95bhp) in passion trim.
The range also features a manual gearbox for the first time, while still offering SMART’s softouch automated gearbox as an option.
As well as offering 30 exterior colour combinations, the SMART Forfour’s innovative and versatile interior offers a high degree of functionality combined with the emotional appeal common to all SMART models.
Customers can choose from two design and equipment lines: the entry level pulse version and the top of the range passion model.
In keeping with the high level of innovation customers have come to expect from SMART, all the available engines in the SMART Forfour offer a much higher horsepower from a small cylinder capacity engine, than many of its competitors.
For example the SMART 1.1-litre petrol engine gives the same output as some competitors’ 1.4-litre engines, whilst offering better fuel consumption and lower CO2 emissions.
Since the SMART brand was launched in the UK in 2000, SMART sales growth has been consistent and is currently 15 per cent ahead of last year, before the launch of the SMART Forfour.
SMART Forfour joins the range of SMART fortwo and roadster models to complete one of the most innovative ranges on the market.
