It is interesting to read how some people think this car is great. Look at the facts, it is the smallest lightest car on the market yet it is still nowhere near the mileage leader. It is the smallest lightest car on the market but nowhere near the cheapest. Not sure why someone would want to buy a tiny car if it weren't about price or mileage and sorry it is just flat out ugly.
Even worse, all you who have said this is a safe car are kidding yourselfs. In initial testing the car did well but these were not in real world test. They did test such as a 40 mph crash into a stationary barrier. Most times in a head on collision it involves 2 cars traveling at 40 mph and a much greater impact. A year later they did do real world test against other smaller cars and the results were devastating. In a 40 mph head on test with a Mercedes C class (slightly larger but still considered a small car) the Smart Car was launched into the air spun around 1 1/2 times and crashed back down. It doesnt take a genius to imagine the results if it had been a full size truck or SUV.
I work in rescue and dread the day we have our first accident with one of these cars.
