Geneva Show 2012 Highlights: 2013 Smart ForTwo

Smart has unveiled a series of subtle styling tweaks to its Smart Fotwo city car for 2012. The look was first previewed on the electric Smart Fortwo ED at last year’s Frankfurt motor show, and was seen on the rest of the range for the first time at the Geneva motor show.

Styling tweaks include a new front grille, which now features an integrated Smart logo. There is also new front and rear spoilers, ‘muscular’ side skirts, and revised optional horizontal LED daytime running lights. Three new alloy wheel designs and seven exterior colour choices are also offered.

Interior tweaks include fresh, higher quality leather and fabric trim options, and optional leather trim to surround the instrument panel. Five trim levels – Pure, Pulse, Passion, Brabus and Brabus Xcvlusive – are offered, but UK models will likely receive just three - Pulse, Passion and Brabus.

There have been no chassis tweaks, nor any changes to the Smart’s engine line-up. That means buyers can choose from a 1.0-litre three-pot petrol with 70bhp, 84bhp or 101bhp in the Brabus, or a 0.8-litre diesel with 54bhp.
