smart lineup

If you’re an inner-city driver, chances are you know the struggles of fuel-draining stop-and-start traffic, cramped streets, and parking lots. The 2017 smart fortwo is a compact hatchback that aims to solve those issues with fantastic fuel economy, small yet still practical dimensions, and purposeful features. You can see why the team at Mercedes-Benz of Sacramento is convinced the 2017 smart fortwo is an absolute must-drive for Bay Area car shoppers!

Fuel-Efficiency

The 2017 smart fortwo is powered by a 1.0L 3-cylinder engine that outputs 89 hp and 100 lb-ft of torque. Despite its compact size, this engine reaches a top speed of 94 mph, and offers remarkably high city fuel economy. Paired with the base 5-speed manual, the smart fortwo earns an EPA-estimated 31 mpg city/39 mpg highway rating*. Opting for the new 6-speed dual-clutch automatic adds two miles per gallon to city fuel economy. Either way you slice it, the smart fortwo is a great solution for Sacramento drivers looking to minimize fuel expenses.

Small Size and Maneuverability

Measuring in at 106 inches long, 75 inches wide, and 61 inches tall, the smart fortwo is compact, nimble, and quick-witted. Its turning circle is incredibly small at 22.8 feet from curb to curb, meaning you can scoot around the Bay Area and squeeze into cramped parking spaces with ease. Don’t be fooled by its small exterior dimensions; the smart fortwo has all the space you need for the essentials. Behind the first row, you’ll find 7.8 to 12 cubic feet of space.

City-smart Features

The 2017 smart fortwo helps you stay ahead of the curve in and around the Bay Area with simple yet clever features, such as:

  • Free Cross Connect App: Download this app and add a smartphone cradle to the dash, and you’ll have an easy way to stream music in the cabin and search for nearby points of interest via a navigation system.

  • Small Item Storage: In addition to cupholders and a net behind the seats, the smart fortwo includes a handy tray that slides out from the center console, perfect for storing coins for parking fare.

  • Available Lane Keeping Assist: Using a front-facing camera, this system keeps track of street markings, and provides visual and audible warnings if you being to leave your lane without signaling.
