This smart fortwo review was posted back in November of 2007 just before the the smart fortwo landed in America. The Edmunds reviewer's main comment about the smart:

"The chief selling point is its small size, and the biggest drawback is its small size."

The reviewer test drove the fortwo in San Francisco and around Silicon Valley. Between him and his passenger (503 total lbs.), they pushed the maximum limit of 507 pounds and did fine getting around. He liked how it handled cornering on freeway ramps and all the safety features the smart fortwo car has.

He did say the transmission was sluggish shifting between gears.

Pros According to the Edmunds Review

  • Small size
  • Pleasure to drive
  • Absorbs bumps and potholes well
  • Great package efficiency design for 2 passengers and cargo
  • Good mileage

Cons According to Edmunds
