The smart fortwo has not much of a body style change until 2013. We redesigned the interior, changed the side skirts and rear/front apron to painted, and changed the wheels from 9-spoke to 12-spoke for the Passion Coupe and Passion Cabriolet. The engine has and will still remain the same.
You can see clearly the newly sculpted fenders and side skirts. The design of the front end truly gives the smart a more aggressive and sporty look. Our grill still remains the shape of a 'smile' which is what the smart car is known for. The smart emblem has moved from the hood to the front grill. The front grill is now upright. All of the grills from 2013 on will be silver. They really stand out against any paint color and give it a clean feel.
Do you want a surround sound, ambient lighting, or a navigation system? Those are all optional features available.
Our safety is still the best. The 2012 smart hardtops and newer are all now equipped with 8 airbags. That is 1 less than the Mercedes-Benz C-class sedan. The Passion Cabriolets have 6 airbags (you cannot have side curtain airbags with a convertible top). All of the previous model year smarts had 4 airbags. The Mercedes-Benz philosophy that more is better is definitely demonstrated with more airbags.
Please contact me with any questions or concerns. Thank you!
