Accessibility & Motability
Usability for people with disability or their carers
When it comes to accessing the front seats, we're hard-pressed to think of a small car that's as easy to get into and out of as the Smart EQ Forfour. It really has been designed with ease of access in mind.
The boot sill is relatively high, too, at 772mm from the ground, and there’s a 223mm drop from the sill to the boot floor. That means you have to lower heavy items down into the boot rather than just sliding them in.
Ease of use and options
Smart is an electric-only brand these days, so all its cars are automatic and easy to drive. A tiny turning circle helps squeeze the Forfour into small parking spaces, and there's a rear-view camera, even on the entry-level car. Oddly, Smart calls this most basic spec Premium.
