In a word: The new smart fortwo

Nov 9, 2006
Dr. Dieter Zetsche, President of DaimlerChrysler
"The concept of the smart fortwo is unique. The new smart is the evolutionary development of a cult car that is unrivalled worldwide.
This unique car from DaimlerChrysler once again shows that a reduced size has a lot to do with intelligence and nothing to do with compromise. There is no compromise on comfort and agility, and certainly no compromise when it comes to safety and ecology because the high standards of the Mercedes Car Group also apply to the smart fortwo.
We are convinced that the new smart fortwo will delight many, many people – not just because of its design and the form of mobility it offers, but also because of its unsurpassed economy."
Ulrich Walker, smart President
"An excellent idea doesn't need to be reinvented. The new smart fortwo is once again an unmistakable and likeable car that adopts the main features from its predecessor – comfort, agility, safety and ecology - and implements these even more consistently.
The new smart is even smarter. No other car takes up less road space, no other car in this class comes with more safety features as standard, no other car in this segment maintains such a high value, no other car has a more economical diesel engine and no other car offers its occupants the pleasure of open top driving at such a low price."
