For a market where most car makers are expected to offer at least one model with an extended wheelbase that accommodates those long legged Asian businessmen and women, China is sure a strange place for the smart fortwo to be successful.

Well, believe it or not, but people in the Middle Kingdom are in love with long-wheelbase models and the tiny fortwo city car in equal measure, as the petite model has been recently voted as the “best micro car 2014” by readers of the “auto, motor and sport” car magazine.

We are naturally talking about the Chinese edition of the German magazine, whose readers elected the smart fortwo as leader of its segment for the fifth time in a row.

The fun fact is that an overwhelming majority of 42.9 percent of all votes went to the fortwo, with the rest being divided between all the other competing models.

Oddly, The smart fortwo is Best Car of 2014 in China

But when they "vote" smart do they know the difference between a French/German smart vs. their smart-NOT Chinese knock-off?

This is very cool -- we tend to think of things from our own perspective and forget there's a whole world out there who get their vote too. And low and behold, they love the Fortwo.
