What is it?
It's the new Smart Fortwo, fitted with the 'Twinamic' dual-clutch automatic transmission and a 0.9-litre three-cylinder turbocharged 89bhp petrol engine.
We've driven this car abroad previously, during which it proved to be an agile and competent city car, but now we've had the opportunity to try it on UK roads – albeit still in left-hand drive form.
In 'Proxy' trim, as tested here, the Smart is a well equipped car. It comes with climate control, Bluetooth and USB connectivity, cruise control, lane keeping assistance, heated seats, a panoramic roof and sports suspension as standard.
It'll set you back £12,615 in this specification, with the turbocharged engine and automatic transmission, which is a hefty chunk of money for a small city car.
A similarly specified Volkswagen Up will cost you £11,890, though, so the Smart's pricing isn't entirely outrageous. The Up does come with sat-nav and DAB, mind, but it isn't offered with climate control. The Fortwo is also much smaller and more distinctive.
