20 January 2004

Smart has today announced the name of its fourth model - the Formore. Arriving in 2006, it'll be a reinterpretation of the SUV, or a Smart Utility Vehicle, looks like it'll be based largely on this year's Forfour, and will usher the firm into a new era of larger-scale production.

As of the beginning of 2006, it'll sit alongside the four-seater, as well as the company's coupé and cabriolet versions of the city car, renamed the Fortwo. The Roadster and Roadster-Coupé will retain their current names for the brand rethink, as they're deemed utilitarian enough already.

The Formore will also mark Smart's introduction to the US. It hopes to sell 30,000 of the new urban off-roader in its first year, complemented by as many sales elsewhere in the world.

    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
  • Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer
    First Drive
    13 October 2017
    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
