Smart has officially unveiled the 2016 fortwo cabrio, the model that will be showcased during the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. As you can see, the new 2016 smart fortwo cabrio is based on the coupe model and features the same familiar design but this time the car has a smaller B pillar in order to accommodate the retractable roof. 

According to smart officials, the power retractable canvas roof can be opened remotely in just 12 seconds and it is available in three different colors: black, blue denim and red. 

More than that, the new 2016 smart fortwo cabrio has a torsional strength increased by 15% thanks to some chassis reinforcements including a crossover bar, two torsional bulkheads and high-strenght steel tubes mounted in the A-pillars.
