Will we see the update for the 2014 model year? Or is it going to be 2015?

"Renault engine" and "apparently indestructible" used in the same sentence? :eek:

Guess it's no longer your father's Renault from back-in-the-day . . .

That's pretty much the comments on Kane's FB post.

I have a little more information on the engine/transmission. It's actually a modified LSA engine from gm putting out 552 hp and mated to a tremec 6060 6 speed. Please keep this information private.

Not really anything new; this engine is supposedly the one in question: The smartest Renault engine ever! Meet Energy TCe 90, Renault’s first 3-cylinder engine | Renault.com – blog

Frankfurt Auto Show in September - 453 smart reveal (as long as smart sticks to their announced plan)

453 production for the EU as a 2014 model - possible deliveries in late 2013, certainly in 2014. The US and Canada get it later as a 2015 model.

Caveat: all subject to the whims of Daimler/Renault/smart....
