Smart car

A Smart car is very popular in the movies. If you have watched The Da Vinci Code, you must remember about the red Smart car. Beside it looks interesting it is the 7th eco-friendly car in the world. These cars are manufactured in Böblingen, Germany. The company is part of DaimlerChrysler. In 2002 they changed the name of the company (previous name was, Micro Compact Car GmbH). In 2006, this company became a part of Mercedes-Benz Group. Smart cars are easy to park and they are small, so moving around a city is easy.

The top speed is just 68 mph. It isn’t very fast, but it is safe. The top speed is limited by the manufacturer. There are two types of petrol powered engines a buyer can choose. 51 and 61 horsepower. The reason why they are eco-friendly is their fuel consumption. It can average 43 mph in a city and 69 mpg on highway.

These cars have a Tridion safety shell. This means that they are very safe, despite their size. This is the most common mistake when a person decides to buy a Smart car. Its safety is in question. Actually, these are safe cars. If you want, you can see the crash test of them on YouTube. 

This isn’t an electric or hybrid car, so it isn’t completely eco-friendly. But it cause very little pollution and you don’t have to search for the parking space in the city (this also reduces the fuel consumption). This should be the choice of many people who want to buy a new car. You don’t need big SUV cars because you won’t use their capabilities.
