DaimlerChrysler: Smart Four-Four

 
.

Smart forfour sets new standards in the small car segment

The smart forfour is the first car in its segment to combine the functionality of a small car with the emotional appeal of a young car brand. Thanks to its flexible interior, the sporty four-seater is extremely versatile, clearly illustrating that the core brand values of innovation and functionality are consistently implemented by smart. The smart forfour will go on sale in the spring of 2004 starting at a price of approx. 11,000 in the euro countries.

The smart forfour is a car with a concept and design which clearly sets apart from other vehicles. The smart forfour stirs emotions and conveys a sense of joie de vivre. However, above all, it is the first car in the small car segment to offer high-end technology components to customers who are looking for a premium product. The affiliation between DaimlerChrysler and Mercedes Car Group is particularly apparent in the Electronic Stability Programme supplied as standard, the range of audio, navigation and telecommunication technology and the numerous comfort and safety functions.

With a choice of powerful engine versions and the exceptionally agile set-up of its active drive chassis, the smart forfour meets all the expectations of those looking for a great driving experience.

Weighting in less than 1,000 kilograms, the smart forfour offers a power/weight ratio of up to 12.2 kilograms per kilowatt (9kg per bhp), which is comparable with the attractive ratio of the smart roadster and roadster-coupe.

Customers can choose between three petrol and two diesel variants, as well as two design and equipment lines (pulse and passion). The smart forfour comes with a conventional five-speed manual transmission as standard. The newly developed, automated six-speed transmission softtouch plus is available as an option.

Like all smart models, the smart forfour has a modular safety system and constructional provisions for maximum passenger safety. In crash tests, the five-door smart displayed qualities which go far beyond the legal requirements and meet the extremely high DaimlerChrysler standards.
