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 driving fun – 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  52 KW engine, 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. And this not only reduces the strain on the environment, but also on your wallet, thanks to lower petrol costs.

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.
