smart to grow its model line-up

Currently the smart range of cars stands at the fortwo and forfour, with the former having coupé and cabrio editions. This is set to change this summer – and next year – with new iterations being added to the collection.

The first to appear will be the Brabus fortwo and forfour, which are due to be launched this summer. They will be officially unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, which runs from 3 to 13 March – with press days on the first two days of that month. This will see a Brabus styling pack for the fortwo, which provides buyers with ways to customise their car in ways that reflect its sportier performance levels.

The Brabus version will retain the same engines currently used in the fortwo, one of which, a turbocharged 90bhp 898cc unit, will be tweaked to produce more power. The body, cabin, brakes and suspension will all feature upgrades too.

The start of 2017 is due to see all-electric models released which are aimed at people who only drive approximately thirty miles a day. The company is also looking at offering a hire car system for their fully-electric car owners. This means that, when they need to, drivers would be able to cover longer distances using a conventionally-powered vehicle.

We will bring you more news on developments soon. In the meantime, the current range of smart cars is available at our Lakeside, Southend and Ipswich dealerships today.
