2011 Smart ForTwo Pure

Industry News

The new generation of the 2011 Smart ForTwo Pure may be available on the roads of 43 different countries, but it features no significant changes since it was first launched in 1998. The only changes are available upgrades to the interior, to option packages, and to available colors. In fact, the 2011 model doesn't even qualify as "facelifted" as the only changes made to the bodywork are that the guel-filler door is now body colored as opposed to black.

The Pure also gets a new optional style package featuring painted lower bumper skirts as well as 12-spoke 15-inch alloy wheels and fog lamps. Inside, the changes include a new three-spoke leather steering wheel with paddles shifters, all part of the more upscale passion package. In general, it's still powered by the standard in-line three-cylinder engine rated at 70 horsepower. It's not much, but it's plenty for jetting across the city.
