Car and Driver posted two smart fortwo reviews; click on the links at the bottom of this summary to get their two different perspectives about the smart car.

The first posting was also back in November 2007 and has some interesting highlights that will make you laugh!

  • Like an energy bar: Lots of nutrients in a small package.
  • Clever engineering and intelligent design.
  • It may look like an egg, but just try to crack it.
  • I thought I ordered this well done.
  • Did they make you a pie when you moved in?

Overall, the person who wrote the Car and Drive smart car review (Jared Gall) liked many of the smart car engineering and design features, but was not favorable about smart car performance, AKA the transmission.

The second Car and Driver smart car review is a very short article posted in April 2008 and gives a brief description of the smart fortwo, along with specs that are useful in getting a grip on the smart car.

Don't forget to click on the smart car photos section for both postings. They provide great close-ups.

C&D April 2008 Review

If you visit one of the pages above, you'll also see the Car and Drive smart car review for the new smart ED. Definitely worth looking at, though I don't think the reviewer totally understands how a manual transmission feels when driving.
