smart fortwo cdi: There’s no more economical way of running a car
Despite the increased engine power, standard petrol consumption for the petrol versions is just 4.9 litres per 100 kilometres. And in the 45 kW and 52 kW versions, the smart fortwo coupé needs even less fuel: Here, standard consumption according to the NEDC is just 4.7 litres per 100 kilometres.
The diesel version boasts even lower consumption. With standard consumption of just 3.4 litres of diesel per 100 kilometres, the new smart fortwo cdi has the lowest consumption in its class. Or, to put it another way, at present there is no more economical car than the smart fortwo cdi.
With CO2 emissions of just 90 grams per kilometre, the smart fortwo cdi achieves "three litre" status. The diesel version of the new smart fortwo thus has the lowest CO2 emissions of any car on the market today.
