The fuel consumption figures were calculated on the basis of these figures. The fuel consumption was determined on the basis of Regulation 692/2008/EC. The data does not relate to an individual vehicle and does not form part of an offer, but are intended solely for the purpose of comparison between the different types of vehicles. The figures will vary according to the optional features selected.

Turning circle.

Its size coupled with the Direct-Steer system gives the smart forfour the smallest turning circle in its class of just 8.65 m measured from wheel to wheel. So if you’ve taken a wrong turn just do a U-turn.

Parking: not an issue.
Parking in cities isn’t always easy. But with the new smart forfour, you can make the most of even the smallest parking space. Thanks to its rear-mounted engine this exceedingly compact four-seater car is just 3.49 m long, enabling it to fit in parking spaces that other drivers have to reject on sight.

Rear-wheel drive.

Thanks to the rear-mounted engine and rear-wheel drive the smart forfour is exceedingly compact. The new manual transmission provides for a whole lot of driving fun. And with the powerful yet economical engines (45 kW, 52 kW and 66 kW turbo) refuelling stops will be a rare pleasure.

Direct-Steer system.

Noticeably lighter: the Direct-Steer system greatly facilitates parking and manoeuvring. The Direct-Steer system combines the comfort of speed-sensitive power steering with variable transformation ratios, depending on the steering wheel angle. Not only does this make for greater cornering agility, it also noticeably reduces the steering effort required when parking. And helps you stay on track at higher speeds.
