Thanks for the photos...

Wish the exterior was more aggressive...in these photos...seems rather "Vanilla" in appearance...

Although the alloy wheels are a nice design...they don't fill up the wheel-wells sufficiently...

Ditto, quite boring. Doesn't really look, any different then standard smart.

I think it looks like a sharp businessman's commuter coupe. Personally, I love that blue, and the contrasting matte Tridion. The interior is beautiful – here's a link with the video where you can see the details better:

Garage
The interior overall is exciting but the steering wheel has a huge grey airbag donut that just looks out of place. The current 451 steering wheel looks much better. I know they had to do something to incorporate the radio and cruise control into the wheel but it looks like the air bag was just thrown on the wheel as an after thought. Like a big zit on a beautiful face.

Needs some Brabus wheels, to set it a part.

Wow, my reaction was just the opposite.

I thought the airbag housing was exceptionally small and visually attractive. I like its contrast with the steering wheel spokes, and I think the overall effect is sporty. The steering wheel is a major upgrade over the 451's cheapish plasticky wheel.

Different strokes!

Too much focus on the inside and not enough pizazz on the outside. It needs PROJECTOR HID headlights, Brabus Wheels as well as racy front and rear air dams. It certainly needs something to counteract that Toyota Butt on the back.
Right there with you Dr. Killer Bee on the HORN blob. Racy is sexy, safety is not if you have to notice it first.
