Toronto, Ontario – Mercedes-Benz Canada has announced the start of sales for the next-generation Smart Fortwo. Prices begin at $14,990 for the Pure Coupe, $18,250 for the Passion Coupe, and $21,250 for the Passion Cabriolet.
Smart was launched in Canada in late 2004 and while it was predominantly hailed as a city car, more than 50 per cent of sales have been in smaller markets and rural areas. More than 10,000 units of the first-generation Smart were sold.
The new Smart features a gasoline engine, better acceleration and higher maximum speed than its predecessor, but qualifies for the full eco AUTO Rebate of $2,000.
