You’re not going to find many Smart models in rural areas, which typically have low crime rates, so you’d expect an above average rate of crimes for Smart models because they tend to sit in urban streets. It’s not the case, though. The crime rate is low across all models of Smart - but it's a fairly young car brand with no poorly secured 80s and early 90s around.
