The Smart Fortwo will get a fabric covering on its solid roof as standard as part of model year updates announced by the manufacturer.
Base prices will remain the same for the Smart range in the UK, which starts at £11,125 for the Fortwo and £11,620 for the Forfour, but Premium and Premium Plus equipment lines have increased to £845 and £1345 respectively.
The increase in price adds the Comfort package (£295) as standard in Premium and Premium Plus, which consists of a height-adjustable driver's seat and height-adjustable steering wheel, as well as rear parking assistance, and Smart’s media system.
Premium Plus now comes with everything in Premium and adds ambient lighting, LED headlights and tail lights, rain sensors and a reversing camera.
A new Brabus sport line is available at the top of the range standard range but below the full Smart Brabus Fortwo model. Priced from £13,810, the Brabus sport line gets the higher powered 89bhp engine and includes 17in alloys as well as a sports steering wheel and other sporty cosmetic flourishes.
The fabric material cover for the roof is only available on entry-level Passion models. Despite having a fabric covering, it remains a solid roof model and not a convertible.
The first updated models are expected to reach dealers in September this year.
Other changes include an LED and sensor package, which now comes with front fog lamps with cornering lights, and a new child seat fastener as standard across the range.
