Something ain't adding up - if the new fortwo is 105.5 inches, that's 8.79 feet. The current fortwo is 8.8 feet (106 inches) long. :confused:

It definitely seems that something has been misstated somewhere. Seems the CEO should know, but it also seems too good to be true. Maybe he said it would shrink 6.5 inches but then Autoblog did the math wrong?

Indeed a false alarm. Autoblog sourced the information from World Car Fans, and seems to have made a miscalculation in the process.

Here's what World Car Fans actually said, "Zetsche also confirmed the new Smart ForTwo will be 2.69m long and the ForFour will have "more interior space than any comparable competitor model despite a length of only 3.5m." The executive went on to say the ForFour will be unveiled in July and go on sale in the fourth quarter."

2.69m equals 105.9". Now, back to your regularly scheduled programming.

Yeah, I was about to say. Daimler already confirmed the new fortwo would only be wider and length would not change except for a longer wheelbase.

Silly blogs...
