Sensational smart fortwo cabrio on the way


More motorists are set to be converted to the iconic smart brand by the impending arrival of a sensational, drop-top gorgeous cabrio version at Sytner smart Retailers.

Premiered at the recent International Motor Show in Frankfurt, the new smart fortwo cabrio will be available to order from the middle of this month and will arrive in showrooms in February.

The only true cabriolet in its class, the new smart offers three vehicle choices in one thanks to its ‘tritop’ folding soft top, which comes in a trio of colours, and removable roof bars that can be stowed in a compartment in the tailgate. At the touch of a button, it can be transformed from a closed two-seater into a car with a large sliding canvas sunroof or a fully-fledged cabriolet with the soft top completely open.

Owners can savour the sunshine as soon as it appears as the roof can be dropped in just 12 seconds even when driving at top speed. It can also be opened from the outside with the three-button key.

The most rigid smart cabrio ever, the torsional strength of the car has been improved by around 15 per cent to offer enhanced occupant protection and specific reinforcements have also been made to its body compared to the coupé. Advanced accident prevention systems that were previously the reserve of higher vehicle classes further enhance the safety credentials of the new model, which has also passed additional Mercedes-Benz crash tests in addition to meeting the requirements of mandatory ones.

Like its fortwo and forfour siblings, the new smart fortwo cabrio will be available with a choice of two state-of-the-art engines that are rated at 71hp and 90hp and mated to either a five-speed manual or fully automatic transmission.

There is also a trio of extensively-equipped model lines – passion, prime and proxy – for customers to take their pick from in addition to a host of optional extras.
