For short trips, long distances and jaunts.

With the twinamic 6-speed dual clutch transmission from smart, driving around town becomes even more dynamic and comfortable. The cutting-edge transmission technology shifts so smoothly and efficiently that you barely notice the shifting process whilst driving. Thanks to the two sub-transmissions, changing gear takes just a few hundredths of a second, regardless of whether you shift fully automatically or prefer to change gear manually with the steering wheel paddles.
