This fall, Daimler is launching a new edition Smart Fortwo, the Edition Highstyle, which is based on the Passion trim. The model is said to come with plenty of equipment, fine materials and an unusual appearance.
The chocolate brown metallic finish of the body is probably what will first get your attention. The new edition looks like no other smart especially with its 15-inch alloy wheels in a 12-spoke design and edition Highstyle logos in aluminum look.
The model boasts metallic leather on the seats and in the doors specially designed for the edition light and dark fabric.
Leather also covers the sports steering wheel and the gearshift and gear knob. Equipment found standard on the Edition Highstyle includes electric power steering, heated seats, a lockable glove compartment and the smart sound system with a smart MP3 interface.
Customers can choose from two engines. They can go for the 71 hp engine priced at 15,695 or the 84 hp engine, priced at 16,195.
The 71 hp version of the Edition Highstyle comes with what Daimler calls micro hybrid drive (mhd), a start-stop system which shuts down the engine as soon as the driver brakes and the vehicle's speed falls below 8 km/h. The mhd allows for fuel savings in city driving of around 20 percent, according to manufacturer's claims.
