The Smart forfour, the first Smart with four seats and five doors, will be available from September 1.
Customers can choose from a range of five engines, including two diesel engines built by Mercedes-Benz; the first time customers have been able to buy a diesel Smart in the UK.
The 1.1 litre, 3 cylinder petrol engine in pulse trim is available from £8,995 OTR, rising to £12,370, for the 3 cylinder 1.5 cdi 95bhp in passion trim.
The range will also feature a manual gearbox for the first time, while still offering Smart’s softouch automated gearbox as an option.
All 56 Smart retailers have a Smart forfour on display in their showrooms and are taking customer orders ahead of the launch. Throughout the summer the forfour will feature in a television advertising campaign starting on July 19; the first time Smart has been advertised on terrestrial television.
The commercials will focus on Smart features such as dent resistant panels, full screen satellite navigation with DVD player, lounge concept interior and panoramic glass roof.
Customers will be able to choose from two design and equipment lines: the entry level pulse version and the top of the range passion model.
