The Smart ForFour is a great choice as a city car with nimble handling and low running costs. It's also fun to drive and manoeuvrable so it is easy to park when space is at a premium.
Obviously, the size of the Smart ForFour means it's a cheap car to run with drivers enjoying the economy of around 67 mpg. Under the bonnet, there's a choice of two engines from a responsive 0.9 litre petrol engine that produces 90 bhp and helps to deliver the sprightly performance around town. Drivers can also opt for a 1.0 litre unit that produces 70 bhp and has emissions of 97g/km. While the six-speed automatic gearbox is effective, particularly in heavy traffic, the five-speed manual box delivers more fun.
The city car market is increasingly competitive and for those who want a stylish car, that is easy to drive with small dimensions to make it easy to park, then there's a lot to recommend the Smart ForFour. Indeed, there's a very long list of personalisation options that will help the driver make the car standout but it is for the handling that make this nippy little car attractive.
For the size of the ForFour, it's surprisingly roomy on board and it is easy to get in and out of; the doors open wide to enable easy access. There's also lots of equipment including cruise control, climate control and Bluetooth connectivity and the car rates highly for practicality and manoeuvrability - the turning circle is also particularly impressive.
Essentially, the Smart ForFour has a lot to recommend it and as a city car there are a lot of positives, including the fact it's surprisingly quiet in the cabin and it is a bright and comfortable place to be.
