Smart Forfour for US, but not for us

This is a new Smart Forfour, although it's available only in the US and isn't the all-new car that will launch here in 2014.

The car is based on the Nissan Micra and is the first fruit of the collaboration between Mercedes and Renault-Nissan announced earlier this year.

The all-new Forfour that's heading for the UK will use the same platform as the next Renault Twingo.

Take a look at the gallery to see some artist impressions that give a good indication of what the new four-door Smart will look like.
