NEW FOR 2014:
-Standard heated seats and multimedia touchscreen
-Electric Drive model gains standard panoramic sunroof
-New wheel designs for Passion and Electric Drive models
This year brings minor, but tangible changes to the Fortwo’s interior: heated seats are now standard, as is a touchscreen for controlling the car’s multimedia system.
Otherwise, this short little song remains the same, with the Fortwo getting its motivation from a 1.0L three-cylinder gas engine mated to an automatic five-speed transmission, or, in the Fortwo Electric Drive, an electric motor with single-speed transmission. Coupe and convertible body styles carry on: the coupe comes in Pure, Passion or BRABUS trim, the cabriolet in Passion or BRABUS, and the Electric Drive in a single trim as a coupe or convertible.
The cabriolet features a soft top that peels back electrically at the touch of a button; the side rails can also be removed and stored in a special area inside the trunk for full open-air.
Features on the Pure coupe include 15-inch steel wheels, air conditioning, head and thorax side airbag, knee airbag, cloth seats with matching dashboard insert, door storage compartments, external temperature display, dash-mounted rev counter and clock pods, locking glove compartment, power windows, power locks with keyless entry, CD stereo, fold-down passenger seat, and two-spoke leather-wrapped steering wheel.
The Passion coupe adds 15-inch alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights, automatic temperature control, six-CD/MP3 stereo, panorama glass roof with sunscreen, three-spoke leather-wrapped steering wheel with shift paddles, cargo cover, electric power steering, heated electric mirrors, and heated seats.
The Passion Cabriolet is equipped similarly to the coupe, but includes an automatic fabric roof with glass rear window and detachable roof bars.
The BRABUS adds 15-inch front and 17-inch rear double-spoke alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights, sportier suspension, sport exhaust with chrome tailpipes, heated leather seats, sport steering wheel, matte brushed aluminum sport pedals, BRABUS velour floor mats, BRABUS fuel filler door, and body skirt package.
