Sub-£10K price for new entry-level Smart pure

Smart ForTwo and ForFour ranges expanded with low-cost pure versions

Smart has expanded its range with two new entry-level models, so you can now own a brand-new Smart for less than £10,000

Forming the foundation of the Smart range beneath the more expensive passion, prime and Brabus sport versions, the Smart ForTwo pure and Smart ForFour pure have a three-cylinder, 71bhp petrol engine and a five-speed manual gearbox for low emissions and fuel economy of 67.3mpg.

Both pure models feature electric windows and door mirrors, remote central locking, a height-adjustable steering wheel and driver’s seat and LED daytime running lights. The trademark Tridion safety cell is finished in black, contrasting with one of nine different body colours. Costs are kept down with 15-inch plastic-trimmed steel wheels and – although air-conditioning isn’t fitted – automatic climate control can be added for £575.

The Smart ForTwo and ForTwo passion add 15-inch alloy wheels, automatic climate control and orange highlights to the seats and dashboard, while prime models add heated driver and passenger seats, a glazed panoramic roof and dashboard rev-counter and clock, as well as unique alloy wheels.

The prime sport builds on this with lowered sports suspension, 16-inch alloy wheels and black leather on the seats and steering wheel, while the Brabus sport package pays visual homage to a famous tuner of cars made by Mercedes – Smart’s parent company.

The introduction of a less expensive model makes the Smart ForTwo and ForFour more competitive with the mechanically similar Renault Twingo, which is only available in long-wheelbase four-seat from. However, the entry-level Twingo Expression still handily undercuts the Smart ForFour pure.

The two-seat Smart ForTwo pure is priced at £9,995 while the longer four-seat ForFour pure costs £10,490. Both models are available to order now, with customer deliveries commencing from July.
