When it comes to turning, the smart fortwo remains without parallel in its cabrio version, too. Thanks to its length of just 2.69 m and the new Direct-Steer system with variable ratio, the turning circle of just 6.95 m measured from wheel to wheel takes some beating.
In such a short cabrio, the city belongs to you.
With an overall length of just 2.69 m, a raised seat position and good all-round visibility, parking is child's play. The short overhangs and the wide track provide for excellent roadholding and make a bold visual statement.
The Direct-Steer system makes parking and manoeuvring even easier. It combines the comfort of speed-sensitive power steering with variable transformation ratios, depending on the steering wheel angle. This provides for more agile cornering and even better directional stability.
Feel the pleasure at the wheel.
A rear engine and rear-wheel drive is normally the reserve of sports cars. This combination adds up to plenty of driving fun in the smart fortwo cabrio as well. With an engine rated at 90hp and a twinamic dual clutch transmission which spans a broad performance spectrum, from a quick spin to relaxed cruising.
