Smart has announced the first details on the facelift version for their ForTwo line-up that will go on sale at the beginning of April 2012. The model will be offered in Pure, Pulse, Passion, Brabus, and Brabus Xclusive versions with pricing starting at €10,275 (about $13,500 at the current exchange rates).
With the new model, Smart has focused on offering a more dynamic appearance for the car, thanks to a larger radiator grille with integrated logo, striking front aprons in a new design, horizontally arranged LED daytime driving lights, muscular side skirts, and modified rear aprons. The chrome-colored logo is now positioned directly in the black radiator grille, while the air inlets under the number plate have been combined into a single unit. Smart is also offering a choice of three new alloy wheels, three soft top colors for the smart cabrio and new exterior colors.
The interior has received a new, high-quality package in crystal grey, comprising a fresh leather/fabric combination for the seats, an imitation leather/fabric mix for the door trims and black imitation leather for the instrument panel in combination with a grey knee pad.
The engine line-up remained unchanged: a 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine for the petrol models, a 102 HP for Brabus version and one 0.8-liter cdi turbodiesel.
