The tiny smart fortwo is niche vehicle with seating for two passengers. The fortwo cabriolet has a canvas roof that folds into the rear cargo compartment. Although not a true convertible, the fortwo offers an open air experience in a compact package. All smart models are powered by a 70-bhp 1.0L inline-3 coupled to a 5-speed automated manual transmission. Smart claims the fortwo will accelerate from 0-60 MPH in 12.8 seconds. Behind the seats, the fortwo offers up to 7.8 cu. ft. of storage space or up to 12 cu. ft. Standard 15-inch alloy wheels (steel wheels for the fortwo pure) are shod with 155/60R15 (front) and 175/55R15 (rear) tires. Smart is marketing the fortwo almost exclusively to urban citizens, who must factor in parking hassles into their car purchase decision. For these buyers, the fortwo fits the bill perfectly.
