Smart Fortwo Brabus review - Small car, big fun, huge price - Design

Far more capable and fun than we could have expected, but it's hard to ignore that price tag

  • Cheeky, surprisingly agile
  • Expense, dynamically compromised due to its size and shape

Design

The current generation of Smart Fortwo Brabus is no longer the eyesore its predecessor was. Careful penning by the designers has ironed out the awkward, proportional width-to-height mismatch, with a more hunkered look courtesy of a higher bonnet and more four-square stance.

Draping the Fortwo in Brabus trinketry brings a cheery charm to the microcar, with multi-spoke alloys and the exhaust housing, rear diffuser lending it a sportier form to augment to the funky, two-tone colour finish.
