Cars.com has just posted a review of the smart fortwo:

http://www.cars.com/go/crp/research...=8791&year=2008&revlogtype=20&section=reviews

This review avoids the "It's so cute, we love it" and "It's different, we hate it" extremes of most reports. Instead it sticks in large measure to factual observations and objective criticism, and gives a decent idea of what the smart will really be like to drive in a range of conditions.

Footnote: the leather seats are reviewed and photographed. Definitely cloth insert in the back.

Perfect. That's the best, most objective review I've seen.

Me too. This sounds like it will be very similar to owning/driving one of the early Mini 1000s, except with rear wheel drive and an air conditioner. With 70hp, I expect the car to start going backwards when the A/C turns on.

I think Volkswagen Beetles were about 70hp and when I turned on there A/C there was virtually no reduction in power. Of course they all had the old "crank on the door" type A/C units. ;)
