    Re: Smart Car..!!

    I hate the Smart. Had one for my business for three years, was happy to return it back. 

    The Smart is not a car, it is the abomination of a car.

    As to the above accident: this was a Ford Escape, not a Smart and believe it or not, the driver survived. 

    Wanna see how the Smart is doing in a crash ?

    Look here:

    Ouch!!!!

    The driver survived ... as what?Smiley 

    The obvious solutions is we need smaller trucks!

    Re: Smart Car..!!

     The Smart is actually a stiff car - means the body stays well but you dont know what internal injuries the drivers body will take away!


    Re: Smart Car..!!

    That Ford Escape crash looks horrific  It's amazing to think people can survive something like that. I can imagine the experience must have been very traumatic.

    If that was a Ford Escape, it is indeed very aptly named...

    Re: Smart Car..!!

    Lol i'm not sure as to how they survived that, ejected before impact

     

    As for smart cars, they are horrible stupid. I am 6"1 and DO NOT fit in one. Let alone driving one was the scariest thing of my life, i don't care how friendly it is, our roads are filled with trucks, pick-ups and SUVs, each of which will destroy me.

    Wanna go green, why not get a VW TDI. Can't beat 90MPG

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :) 


    Re: Smart Car..!!

    I drive a Smart every day in and around town and I hate it in terms of the driving experience. My wife refuses to use it. However, it is very handy in exploiting gaps in city traffic, tiny parking spots and other road users always give me space and priority out of sympathy

    I used a few times on the highway and the drive there is epic to say the least especially in cross winds and next to HGVs.

    In the very hot summers, the A/C is not that effective which is expected if you see the a/c compressor which is the size of a 330ml drinks can.

    Re: Smart Car..!!

    Now I have Smart Brabus (451 the new one) and I think that is very good product, I do NOT like it as  car, but as a something to take me from spot A to spot B in town I can not imagine something better. To compare Smart to any other car is like comparison between motorcycle and a moped in town, the moped is much user friendly in town, but out of town it is pain in the ass Smiley. Before this Brabus with 100 PS I have Smart Brabus Ultimate 112 and with Ultimate the speed out of town is not bed (177 km/h on GPS) but the side wind can move You to other lane and it is not very pleasant. I like it also for a parts, if you need to change the bumpers, the door panel etc., it comes painted. The only bed thing about Smart is price, here in Croatia Brabus cost around 26000 EUR anf for a few tousend more we can buy a new Golf GTI.


    Re: Smart Car..!!

    I prefer a Mini Cooper S JWC as a small town car, it is just perfect and you have all the power you need. Recently saw a new model at my dealer in black with red stripes, it looked fantastic. The Smart doesn't have any advantage for me, on the contrary.

    The 451 does 0-100 kph in slightly under 9 seconds. With further chip tuning, slightly over 8 seconds should be possible but thats it. The Mini Cooper S JWC does 0-100 kph in 6.4 seconds. Huge difference and the chassis on the JCW is also sportier. Price tag of the JWC is only aprox. 10000 EUR higher, not much if you consider the huge difference in performance.
