What should I look for in a used Smart Fortwo Coupe city-car?
Strange but true, seat and steering wheel height adjustment was standard on the basic Pure cars, but was a cost option as part of the comfort package on higher specification variants. When looking at used examples, make sure it has the comfort package; otherwise, it won’t have these essential items.
Despite its tight turning circle and good-sized mirrors, you should check the alloy wheels for kerb damage and bumpers for scrapes. The interior could be ordered in some rather light colours that will not hide dirt for long. It is also made with plenty of hard, scratchy plastics that might be easy to wipe clean, but could be scuffed for example by shoes or even jewellery.
