Electric drive Premium Auto
The electric Forfour is a hoot around town. Its nippy acceleration will help you see off just about everything from the traffic lights up to about 20mph, and itโ€™s delightfully quiet as well. Itโ€™s not well suited to motorway journeys though. Thereโ€™s a lot of road noise and it feels underpowered at high speeds.
0.9 Turbo 109 BRABUS Auto
Fitted to the Brabus ForFour model only, it has 107bhp for a bit more poke. However, 0-62mph takes 10.5secs so itโ€™s not exactly quick by hot-hatch benchmarks. Comes with a six-speed dual-clutch gearbox as standard, which is quite clunky in stop-start traffic.
0.9 Turbo
This is our favourite engine. The extra power from the turbo means it works well in town or on the motorway, while it still delivers good fuel economy and low emissions.
1.0
This non-turbo 1.0-litre has adequate performance for pottering around town. However, venture onto more open roads and it needs to be worked hard to keep pace with traffic.
