Smart Fortwo Cabriolet (2016–2019)
Smart Fortwo Cabriolet goes on sale
The newest addition to the smart range comes with an electrically-operated fabric roof that can be lowered or raised in just 12 seconds at any vehicle speed.
The fortwo cabrio’s triple-layered soft top –including glass rear screen - fully opens, while the roof side bars are removable and fit easily into the cabrio’s folding tailgate ensuring they never encroach into the cabrio’s boot space. The fortwo cabrio comes with a black soft top as standard, but customers can also opt for the red option (£115). A compact wind deflector (£59) is also available.
The fortwo cabrio is available with one of two engines - 71 hp or 90 hp turbo - twinned with a new five-speed manual gearbox (available to order in spring 2016) or twinamic six-speed dual clutch automatic transmission (£995), which brings quick gear shifts and even greater efficiency when paired with the 90hp engine.
When powered by the 71PS engine the fortwo cabrio returns up to 65.7 mpg on the combined cycle, emits just 99 g/km of CO2 and has a top speed of 94 mph. The 90PS turbo variant (which costs £595 more) returns up to 67.3 mpg, emits 99g/km and has a top speed of 96 mph.
Like its fortwo and forfour siblings, there are three model lines available for the fortwo cabrio: passion, prime and proxy. The passion features 15-inch eight-spoke alloy wheels along with automatic climate control; smart audio system with Bluetooth connectivity; and a choice of either an orange/black or a grey/black interior.
The prime model comes with 15-inch five-twin-spoke black alloys with high sheen finish; black leather upholstery with grey topstitching; and heated seats. Additional dashboard instrument pods with a cockpit clock and rev counter are a classic smart touch.
The proxy model is fitted with 16-inch eight-Y-spoke alloy wheels in black. It also features a blue and white interior with Artico and cloth upholstery, and – as standard – the Sports Package which includes: a sports perforated leather multifunction steering wheel; sports suspension lowered by 10 mm; rubber-studded brushed steel sports pedals and a chrome exhaust finisher. Both prime and proxy are priced at £695 over passion models.
