2016 smart fortwo cabrio

At the touch of a button the new smart fortwo cabrio is transformed from a closed two-seater into a car with a large sliding canvas sunroof, or a full-fledged cabriolet with the soft top completely open. This enables the fresh air driving experience to be adapted to the weather or the driver's mood in twelve seconds - even when driving at top speed.

With its ultra-short overhangs, clear lines and tridion safety cell, the new smart cabrio is clearly recognizable as a member of the new smart generation. The B-pillar is narrower than on the coupe and the styling of the tridion safety cell is more progressive, giving the smart fortwo cabrio an even sportier look. The interior styling is sure to delight and is characterized by a "dynamic loop" as a signature feature throughout the interior - emotional sweeping lines which feature on the dashboard and doors, for example.

The new cabrio is available with a state-of-the-art three-cylinder engine rated at 89 hp. The engine can be combined with the five-speed manual transmission or the fully automatic twinamic dual clutch transmission. The smart fortwo cabrio has the agility typical of the brand - at 6.95 m (from curb to curb) and 7.30 m (from wall to wall) turning manoeuvres are extremely simple and highly nimble.
