smart – engine

Our drive.

The engine and transmission are installed at the rear, enabling the extremely compact design of the smart. You can choose between three powerful 3-cylinder petrol engines, all offering lots of motoring pleasure – even on short journeys in town.

And for the short stops the automatic start/stop system is on board as a standard feature.

The engines.

The 45 kW and 52 kW engine.

The 45 KW engine and the 52 KW engine, each with three cylinders, ensure plenty of fun behind the wheel – and contribute to the low overall weight of the smart. This is because the lightweight design results in lower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. It reduces the strain not only on the environment, but also on your wallet, thanks to lower petrol costs.

The 66 kW turbo engine.

The 66 kW three-cylinder turbo engine guarantees sporty and dynamic motoring pleasure – even on short journeys. And thanks to the efficient acceleration you reach your destination even more quickly.

Automatic start/stop system.

For even more fuel-efficient driving.

A standard feature: the automatic start/stop system automatically shuts down the engine when the vehicle is stationary – reducing fuel consumption. If desired, the automatic start/stop system can be manually deactivated via a switch.
