What Car? says

2 out of 5 stars

For The ForFour is one of the most stylish superminis, and it's an enjoyable drive

Against It’s pricey, even used. The ride is too firm, too

Verdict It's the best car Smart has made, but it's expensive and not as good as its rivals

Go for… 95bhp 1.5 CDI Pulse

Avoid… 1.3-litre petrol

Smart Forfour Hatchback
  • 1. Firm suspension gives a jiggly low-speed ride - but excellent handling
  • 2. Avoid the 1.3-litre model. The best version is the 95bhp diesel
  • 3. Avoid the jerky semi-automatic gearbox, and always choose a manual
  • 4. The steering and grip are very good
  • 5. Four-seat layout makes this Smart's most practical car
