Entry-level Pure-trim cars get steel wheels and basic kit; cuts the base price of the Smart Fortwo by £1375

The Smart Fortwo and Forfour Pure models have been launched, priced at £9995 and £10,490 respectively.

Pure is now the most basic trim available, creating a new entry point in the Smart line-up.

The cars get electric windows, remote locking, and a height adjustable steering wheel and driver’s seat.

Confusingly, Pure also gets electrically adjustable and heated wing mirrors as standard; previously these weren’t standard until the £12,215 Passion Premium Fortwo, and are otherwise a £295 option on all specs but those with Premium in the name.

This is because the Pure is a newer model, said a Smart spokesman, and that the brand will be making this feature standard across the Smart range in due course.

Cloth seats and 15in steel wheels are also fitted, as are halogen headlights, although the cars retain their LED daytime running lights. Mechanically, Pure-spec cars are no different to higher-spec Smarts, though.

Previously, the entry to Smart ownership was the £11,370 Fortwo Passion, but the Fortwo Pure cuts £1375 from this. For the Forfour, it was previously £11,865, with Pure undercutting the Passion-spec Forfour by the same amount.
