Sorry for my counterpoint, but I think it looks cheap, cold, and outdated. The uninspired Twingo interior disappoints me, and I hope the Smart version will be better in all aspects.

I think more people would drive small cars if the interiors didn't look so cheap and plasticky.

Makes sense to me. Although I think the upper dash is made out of the same kind of soft touch materials Toyota and Chrysler are using.

Agree on other points though, it's missing some "zazz". I think it needs more colour.

Though, the smart version shouldn't look anything like the Twingo, so my point is moot anyway.

It's a French car designed by the French for the French. Once Mercedes has made the interior more Germanic it should get its smart personality back. Hopefully smart will add seats with whiplash reducing headrests to increase the car's safety rating. Odd, having the dash say "hello" instead of "bonjour" when the power comes on.

Sort of looks like a mini cooper's interior, dont like it. I think the smart has the nicest looking interior with the Fiat in second.

Steven - for the first few moments of the video, I didn't understand your comment - but when the video got to the door pockets with the simple elastic strip to hold the water bottles in place, I had to agree whole-heartedly with you. I think they wanted something like the new Mini Coopers, but didn't come close.

That looks very low end, almost like a very cheap Nissan? To it's defense I don't think the Twingo is designed to be a "Premium" micro car right? So we should see much more Daimler influence on the smart... I hope.
