New SMART \'forfour\' model for the US

This could give Toyota's Scion a run for their money.



SMART SHOWS U.S.-BOUND CAR

The first pictures of the Smart forfour have been released by the Eurobrand and its DaimlerChrysler parent. The new vehicle, the most extensive cooperation between DC and Mitsubishi in Europe thus far, is a four-door model that will be sold in the United States (though built in Brazil) beginning in mid-decade. The new forfour (lowercase theirs) has safety-cell construction, a two-tone exterior and will be offered with a choice of three gas-powered or two diesel engines when it goes on sale in Europe in spring 2004. More details will doubtless be revealed at the Frankfurt auto show this September.

I love it, obviously, but I still want the original two-seat one.

Looks like a Mini Cooper. I hope the high-end model is faster than the Cooper S.

It looks so big. Is that the SMART stretch limo? I'd prefer the smaller one.
