2011 Smart



Looks like some very small changes are coming up for the Smart.
Is it enough?

At least in the US, sales have been worse and worse.
It just seem like everyone who wanted one already has one.

The new Scion iQ might be the last nail in the coffin.
The Scion/Toyota is wider and looks much more solid and stable than the Smart.

We’ll see…

  1. Did you really just say that the iQ LOOKS more solid and stable??? HAHAHAHAHAH

    Vince, I'd bet my life savings that the last gen Smart car is safer and more solid than the upcoming iQ.

    What a joke.

  2. I had the chance to sit inside both cars.
    (Although I haven't driven them)
    I can only speak for myself, but the Toyota does feel much more solid that the Smart.

  3. Still wouldn't buy one. If I'm driving a ridiculous microcar, it had better be getting 50 mpg or more. The Smart's rated for 36 mpg combined. There are plenty of cars with 4 seats and a proper trunk that can equal that.

  4. The Smart Car is the most ridiculous car ever created. I think Vince was right when he said the 20-30 people that wanted one already bought it. The IQ is a better car, especially when you know Toyota built it. The IQ is bigger and more stable plus it gets better gas mileage than the 4 2. It will be of much better quality and its just a smarter car.

  5. smart has run it's course…

    the original joint venture between watch maker swatch and mercedes benz to research and develop batteries for electric vehicles appears to have been maintained with MB (SLS E-Cell), with smart left with only the "small car" without it's key electric drive train…

    what a shame…

  6. After being sued by Consumer Reports under the "Truth in Advertising" Law; they have changed the name to "DUMB"
