Key West Ford Why buy Smart Fortwo a Smart Car under 10k

Purchasing a new car is a decision you want to make carefully. Not only do you want to get a reliable and dependable car, but you also want one that will be economical. If you live or work in Vancouver, then managing the traffic and highways will be one thing on your mind. You would benefit from a smaller vehicle to keep you moving along at a good rate. With crowded roadways because of the high population and density in the area, owning a Smart Car, such as the Smart Fortwo, makes sense. Even though the Smart Fortwo will no longer be produced or sold in Canada after the 2020 model, you can still obtain one used at Key West Ford. Let's take a look at why one of these cars would be ideal for you to own.


Smart Fortwo Review



The Smart Fortwo is very uniquely designed. With its tiny size, it can navigate just about anywhere, which can come in handy. It measures just under 2.5 meters long and 1.5 meters wide and 1.5 meters tall. This gives you the ability to back up to the curb and park. Most vehicle must perform parallel parking in such spots. You can fit two or three Smart Fortwo cars in one spot if you back them up.


The type of engine you have in a Smart Fortwo depends on the year you get. A 2016, for example, hosts a rear-mounted 3-cylinder gas engine that delivers 89 hp and 100 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine sends torque to the rear wheels, just like a Porsche 911. Keep in mind the vehicle is incredibly light at 2,000 lbs. So, it doesn't take much horsepower to move it at a good rate.


The 2020 Smart Fortwo has a 0.9-litre I3, which also gets 89 hp and 100 lb.-ft. You can also get an electric motor, which delivers 74 hp and 96 lb.-ft. of torque.


As you can imagine, the Smart Fortwo is great on fuel economy. You should be able to get about 39 mpg on the highway, which can result in incredible savings every year.


Choose between a 6-speed automatic or a 5-speed manual and you're all set to go.


Don't forget when you own a Smart Fortwo, you will be contributing to the environment. These cars produce less emissions and less pollution issues.
