Apart from the dual-clutch gearbox, buyers of the ForTwo Cabrio now have the choice to order the open-top two-seater with a five-speed manual transmission too.
Billed by Smart as the entry-level version of its city car, it boasts a comprehensive range of standard equipment. This includes the electrically operated soft top, LED daytime running lights, central locking, visual locking-verification signal and immobilizer, monochrome LCD display in the instrument cluster, exterior temperature indicator with frost warning, cruise control with speed limiter, trip computer and electric windows.
The manual ForTwo Cabrio comes with a choice of two engines: the 1.0-liter, rated at 71 PS (70 HP) and 91 Nm (67 lb-ft) of torque, and the more powerful 0.9-liter, producing 90 PS (89 HP) and 135 Nm (100 lb-ft) of torque. The average fuel consumption stands at 4.3 lt/100 km (54.7 mpg US) in both and while the former needs 14.9 seconds to go from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph), the 90 PS version can do it in 10.8 seconds.
