New smart fortwo & forfour by Daimler

July 24th, 2014 by retail design blog

In its first major redesign, the new SMART fortwo has virtually been reimagined in all areas. The compact rear engine concept has also been unveiled alongside the four-seater smart forfour, where features such as the headlamps, the cooling air grille in the front and the iconic tridion safety cell are identical. Power is supplied via three-cylinder engines from mercedes-benz outputting up-to 90 horsepower and is paired with either a five-speed manual transmission or twinamic automatic dual clutch gearbox.

Prices are expected to correspond to that of the current smart series, with the option to customize with 40 different exterior color combinations. The side view of the smart forfour reveals the same elements as the fortwo. The smart designers refer to the evolutionary development of the silhouette as a ‘one-and-a-half box’. The grille’s perforated structure results from a honeycomb pattern a new front axle design adopts elements from the previous mercedes-benz C-class the wheels are positioned further outwards thanks to its 100 mm wider track stance like a nut, the soft interior is protected from harm by a rigid shell.
