10.27.16 - 2017 Smart Fortwo Cabrio

There’s a lot of fun when it comes to driving a small car and many of us look at the ForTwo as a car that might be a challenge to enjoy on the road because of its size, but this car is one that can give you a ton of fun in a small package. This is certainly the case when you drive the Cabrio version which allows you to put the top down and enjoy the wind blowing through your hair. This car is ready to go and offers you the fun in the sun in a small vehicle that doesn’t take itself too seriously.

The Smart ForTwo Cabrio offers you an engine that’s so small it’s measured like motorcycles and comes in at 898-cc with turbocharging and three cylinders. This engine offers you 89 horsepower and 100 lb.-ft. of torque which is enough for this car to get going. This engine is mated to a six speed dual clutch automatic transmission and provides you with 33 city/38 hwy mpg of fuel mileage while coming in at a price that starts our around $22,910 with the cabrio convertible feature included to give you an easy to afford car that’s a lot of fun.

The retractable roof of the Cabrio can be lowered with the push of a button in only 12 seconds at any speed the car can drive. The maximum speed of this car is actually 94 miles per hour, which you might not think this car is capable of reaching, but it can do this without any real problems. This car is one that you can enjoy showing off how the roof can retract and go back up at any speed the car can drive and be perfect for you to enjoy a dramatic entrance or exit from where you go.

The steering and suspension of the Smart ForTwo Cabrio offer you a light and easy to enjoy drive that’s quick on the maneuvering and makes a huge difference in the overall enjoyment of the vehicle. You’ll love how small this car is when you try and park it because it can be parked in nearly any place in the city. As one of the smallest cars on the road you’ll be able to enjoy the drive and go where you want to fit in a space that small enough for a bicycle and your car.

What might surprise you is this car is actually related to the Porsche 911. This is only a relative of this highly lauded sports car in that it’s set up in RWD and has the engine in the back of the car to give you a direct power transfer from the engine to the wheels. With this small engine it certainly needs to have it back there. This may be a car that has a limited audience, but I could see this being a fun car to drive down the beach road at any resort area or in a large city where it would fit easily wherever we want to take it. This ForTwo gives you a drive that you can love and a look that will certainly put a smile on your face whenever you head out to your driveway.
