Aggressively designed for a laid back ride.

For protecting the car that’s protecting you, there’s our New Vehicle Limited Warranty. This protects every new smart and covers defects in material and workmanship for 48-months or 50,000 miles (whichever comes first).

And if you’re ever attacked by a runaway garbage truck (or a flat tire), it also includes 24-hour Roadside Assistance.

smart Standards

Safety is in our bones.[3]

Engineered with Mercedes-Benz, every smart must meet the strongest industry standards. The patented Tridion Safety Cell uses reinforced high-strength steel to act as a barrier between you and anything else on the road.

Steel doors with spot-welded reinforcements offer protection in the case of side-on impact, and Crosswind Assist helps you compensate for strong gusts of wind with ESP® sensors that automatically trigger your brakes.

Spacious where it matters most.

The smart fortwo was designed to act small, but feel big. By widening the base, we added stability and space, so when you sit in a smart, it has the feel of a sedan.

It also features a twin-section tailgate, which facilitates loading and unloading, and provides maximum storage.
