Meet the Smart Fortwo. Pronounced
fort-woe four-twah for-two, this DaimlerChrysler micro-compact has been redesigned for a 2008 U.S. release. Only 106-inches long, three of these handbags can fit nose-to-curb in the parking space typically hogged by one standard car length.
And its zippered compartment consists of a solid steel Tridion frame which contains a 5-speed manual transmission, front and side air bags, 7.8 cubic feet of cargo space, and two people.
40 miles per gallon.
