The diesel-powered smart fortwo cdi demonstrates how economical and environmentally-friendly a car can be. Now, with its micro hybrid drive (mhd) technology, smart can offer a fuel-efficient solution for its petrol engines, too.
The micro hybrid drive technology in the smart fortwo mhd uses a start/stop function that automatically switches the engine off at traffic lights or in a traffic jam, and back on when things get moving again. The mhd switches the engine off as soon as you brake and fall below a speed of 5 mph. When the time comes to set off again, take your foot off the brake pedal and the engine will start again seamlessly with first gear automatically engaged so that you can continue your journey. This reduces consumption and CO2 emissions. In fact, the smart fortwo mhd's start/stop generator enables a fuel saving of 8%* or up to 11% in city traffic**, all without compromising on performance or comfort.
Combined fuel consumption for fortwo coupe 71bhp mhd of 65.7 mpg / 4.3l/100 km, combined CO2 emissions of 103g/km; combined fuel consumption for fortwo cabrio 71bhp mhd of 64.2 mpg / 4.4 l/100 km, combined CO2 emissions of 105g/km.
