It would not be too long for us to wait the new 2016 Smart Fortwo since the official will travel for New York Motor Show in order to start its introduction for all-new series. It will be available as the third generation was presented last fall and now it is coming out for United States.
As we could predict that the US version for this car is quite similar as European model that was released in French few months ago. It goes with the new platform that was produced as the result of cooperation with Renault. This platform is stretched to have the length about 105.9 inches while the width is 65.3 inches and the height is 61 inches as 2016 Smart Fortwo. With this dimension, it is claimed that this car will be the smallest among other cars. What makes it more different from the second generation is it has reduced turning radius.
2016 Smart Fortwo will be designed with four trim levels so you can choose such as pure, passion, prime and proxy. The base model is coming out with the support of some standard features including LED daytime running lights, Bluetooth connectivity, power windows, eight airbags, cruise control, and remote keyless entry, multi-function steering wheel while the other higher trims will be completed with Crosswind Assist technology just like Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, GL-class and S-class.
The first model will be designed with two tones that are orange and white. The alloy wheels are 16 inches with slight lowered sport suspension, panoramic sunroof and LED lighting. You could also find out stainless steel pedals and three-spoke steering wheel for its perfect touch. For US version, it has Renault three-cylinder 9 liter through small turbocharged to offer 89 hp and 100 foot-pounds of torque. The top speed for 2016 Smart Fortwo is about 96 mph.
Everything sounds better when we heard that the company has fixed the problem with the auto manual transmission since it is replaced with the five-speed manual unit. For buyers who need two-pedal setup, they also could purchase six-speed dual-clutch DSG with more price tag for 2016 Smart Fortwo.
Although there is no confirmation yet from the official, it is rumored that the schedule for 2016 Smart Fortwo to launch in showrooms will be next September so that it comes out across the nation. When the time is close to the schedule, the official will announce the fuel economy details and pricing information.
