New smart fortwo BRABUS and BRABUS Xclusive: 30 percent more
power than before with fuel consumption of just 5.2 litres
A combination of sportiness and
exclusiveness: The BRABUS models of the new smart fortwo are
ready to hit the road. With a reengineered 72 kW/98 bhp three
cylinder turbo engine the smart fortwo BRABUS and the smart
fortwo BRABUS Xclusive continue to boast low fuel consumption of
just 5.2 litres per 100 kilometres, yet they have 30 percent
more power than the predecessor model. CO2 emissions stand at
124 grams per kilometre.
The sporty two-seater accelerates from
zero to 100 km/h in 9.9 seconds and reaches a top speed of 155
km/h. Prices in Germany range from € 16,490 to € 22,430 (ex
factory) depending on the equipment line and body type.
The sporty character of the new smart
fortwo BRABUS is apparent at first glance. For example, it comes
with bright-finish "Monoblock VI" alloy wheels with wide tyres
measuring 175/50 R 16 at the front and 225/35 R 17 at the rear,
wider rear wheel arches, a sports exhaust system with centrally
positioned dual tailpipes in the specially styled rear apron and
a body lowered by ten millimetres.
The transmission and suspension also
have a sporty setup. In the interior, cockpit instruments with
specially designed dials, BRABUS stainless steel sports pedals
and a new BRABUS leather steering wheel with shift paddles
underline the exclusiveness of this model. The panoramic roof
with sun blind is a standard feature. The new smart fortwo
BRABUS is available in all colours.
The smart fortwo BRABUS Xclusive lives
up to its name with additional equipment details such as H7
projection headlamps with titanium coloured surrounds, a front
spoiler with enlarged air inlets, striking side skirts and a
special rear apron. All body styling parts are painted in the
car's exterior colour.
The seats are upholstered with fine leather,
heated, and feature head/thorax side airbags as standard. The
leather-effect instrument panel boasts aluminium-look trim components.
Both BRABUS model variants of the new smart
fortwo are available as a coupé or a cabrio. Three cylinder engine with
turbo power: 72 kW/98 bhp and 140 Newton metres of torque At the heart
of the new smart fortwo BRABUS is a turbo engine with electronically
controlled fuel injection that has been improved in numerous details.
From capacity of one litre the three-cylinder engine now develops 72
kW/98 bhp at 5500 rpm and lends the 780 kilogram two-door car remarkable
agility. The weight/power ratio is just 7.95 kg/bhp - 24 percent lower
than that of the previous BRABUS version.
The turbo in-line engine develops maximum
torque of 140 Newton metres at 3500 rpm. The new smart fortwo BRABUS
sprints from zero to 100 km/h in 9.9 seconds and reaches an
electronically limited top speed of 155 km/h.
With combined fuel consumption of just 5.2
litres per 100 kilometres the two-seater is one of the most economical
cars in its size and power category. Carbon dioxide emissions stand at
124 grams per kilometre.
