Unveiled for the first time during this year Frakfurt Motor Show, in September, the new Smart Fortwo Cabrio is now available to order on the UK market. The small cabrio hurried up to catch the Christmas joy of buying expensive gifts. We say expensive because the Fortwo Cabrio does not come cheap, as its starting price is £13,265. for the entry-level engine.
The Fortwo Cabrio is available with one of two engines – 71 hp or 90 hp turbo – twinned with a new five-speed manual gearbox (available to order in spring 2016) or twinamic six-speed dual clutch automatic transmission (£995).
The car comes with an electrically-operated fabric roof that can be lowered or raised in just 12 seconds at any vehicle speed. The Fortwo Cabrio comes with a black soft top as standard, but customers can also opt for the red option (£115). A compact wind deflector (£59) is also available.
Like its Fortwo and Forfour siblings, there are three model lines available for the Fortwo Cabrio: passion, prime and proxy. The passion features 15 inch eight-spoke alloy wheels along with automatic climate control, smart audio system with Bluetooth connectivity and a choice of either an orange/black or a grey/black interior.
Customers can also choose to upgrade with the choice of the Premium and Premium Plus Packages.
The Premium Package is available on passion, prime and proxy model lines (£795) and includes rear parking assistance (acoustic parking sensors), smart media system with navigation, and the Comfort package (which includes a height adjustable steering wheel and heated, electrically adjustable door mirrors).
