2016 ForTwo Cabrio On the Attack!



Smart's third-generation ForTwo has gone topless, but in these rainy spyshots the roof has stayed firmly shut. The dinky city car will get an electric fabric hood much as before, and its expected to be unveiled towards the end of 2015.

The distinctive styling of the 2.69-metre long runabout remains largely unchanged from the hardtop car that went on sale at the start of this year. The only marked change is the cloth top, which extends back to the edge of the tailgate. The standard car gets a pull-out rear window, but this one will be fixed.



The roof, likely with an electric mechanism, will be offered in a wide variety of colours to complement the ForTwo's already bold paint options. The spyshots show a neat rear spoiler built into the hood, that looks like it folds back with it.

Mechanically it'll be business as usual, with the underfloor-mounted 0.9-litre three cylinder petrol engine in either naturally-aspirated or turbocharged form. It shares its underpinnings and suspension with the ForFour and Twingo superminis, and comes with a five-speed manual or new dual-clutch automatic.

We predict the ForTwo cabrio will command around a £1,500 premium over the standard car, meaning a pricetag of around £12,500 is a reasonable estimate.

White Nosebear cabriolet with black roof bars? Still doing that? I had hoped it'd be a prototype thing....

I agree with the black roof bars, hopefully they will change that... Im not crazy about the nose.. and the lites front and rear look too much like a FIAT... will be interesting to see the final product and what aftermart suppliers come up with..

Those black roof bars are going to look really good on a white car with blue soft top

They already look bad on this car with its grey roof.

Use your imagination. It could have a red tridion, a silver grille, yellow panels, a blue top, and black rails. Perfection, in a something-for-everyone sort of way!
