Review

If you were to describe the proportions of the ultimate city car, the Smart Fortwo EQ might well provide the template. Nothing with doors offers such dinky dimensions that allow you to scoot through gaps and park so freely. That aside, the ForTwo's lack of refinement, practicality and, by modern standards, electric range, limits it far more than other electric city cars.

Prime trim focuses on luxury, bringing heated leather seats to the Passion’s standard equipment list. It’s actually not too big a financial step up, but ultimately we’d recommend saving your cash and sticking with Passion.
