Smart Fortwo 2012: The New Look
(1888PressRelease) We will see the smart fortwo making its mark in a striking new look, featuring an upgraded exterior and a fresh leather/fabric mix in the interior. smart fortwo 45 kW mhd coupe and smart fortwo 52 kW mhd coupe are qualified as the Government's Environment-friendly Petrol Private Car (EFC). smart fortwo 2012 is available in Hong Kong and Macau now.
The revamped smart fortwo sports a more dynamic appearance, featuring a larger radiator grille with integrated logo, striking front aprons in a new design, horizontally arranged LED daytime driving lights, muscular side skirts and modified rear aprons. The way in which the fortwo now displays the smart logo more prominently stands for the brand's new self-confidence. The smart fortwo has long become an icon that is a defining feature of urban traffic throughout the world.
The chrome-coloured logo is now positioned directly in the black radiator grille. The air inlets under the number plate have been combined into a single unit, lending the smart fortwo a bolder ap-pearance. The new, optionally available LED daytime driving lights are now arranged horizontally. There is also a choice of three new alloy wheels: the smart fortwo passion comes with a new 9-spoke alloy wheel; two additional alloy wheels fitted with wide tyres and featuring a 3-spoke and 3-twin-spoke design respectively round off the range. The choice of colours comprises seven options, in-cluding matt anthracite for the first time.
While the main focus of this facelift is on the exterior, there are changes inside the car, too. These include a new, high-quality interior package in crystal grey, comprising a fresh leather/fabric com-bination for the seats, an imitation leather/fabric mix for the door trims and black imitation leather for the instrument panel in combination with a grey knee pad.
The pulse and passion equipment lines are generally more colourful options than the basic pure model. pulse and passion highlight the frame of the front grille and the rear trim strip in silver, for example, while the front spoiler, side skirts and rear apron are painted in the car's exterior colour. The door mirror caps are finished in the tridion colour. On the smart pure, these components are black.
The four lines - pure, pulse, passion, and BRABUS Xclusive - are to be retained. Similarly, the smart fortwo will continue to be available as a coupé and cabrio version and with three engine and motor variants. Prices begin at HK$ 104,000 for the smart fortwo 45 kW mhd coupe pure.
The new model generation for 2012 represents the continuation of a unique success story for smart: as a trendsetter the smart fortwo has been redefining individual urban mobility for more than ten years now. It combines responsibility to the environment and high ecological standards with joie de vivre and a high fun factor. With its compact dimensions the two-seater takes up less road and parking space than any other car around.
