2020 Smart EQ Fortwo And Forfour Introduce Subtle Styling And Connectivity Updates

The 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show hosts the mildly facelifted 2020 Smart EQ Fortwo and 2020 Smart EQ Forfour, the last Smart models that don’t carry any input from Geely.

As you probably know, the next-generation of Smart vehicles will be co-developed by Geely and Daimler. The Chinese will engineer the new EVs scheduled to launch in 2022 while the Germans will style them.

Until then, Smart is presenting the facelifted EQ Fortwo and EQ Forfour electric vehicles in Frankfurt. As you can see, the updates are on the subtle side, with the electric city cars gaining discreet exterior tweaks and a new infotainment system.

The 2020 Smart EQ Fortwo and Forfour introduce styling updates inspired by the ForEase and ForEase+ concept cars such as the redesigned radiator grilles, refreshed bumpers, optional full-LED headlights, and funky LED taillights with a new signature.

Inside, the diminutive EVs gain a new 8-inch infotainment system that offers integration with smartphones and promises to be more intuitive and easier to use. There’s also a new center console featuring a larger storage compartment in front of the shifter. According to Smart, that’s big enough to hold modern smartphones or two coffee cups thanks to a removable cup holder.

Smart has also revised the range structure, offering three trim levels (Passion, Pulse, and Prime) and three equipment packages (Advanced, Premium, and Exclusive).

No changes have been made to the powertrain, with the electric motor delivering 80 hp (82 PS) and 118 lb-ft (160 Nm) of torque and sourcing electricity from a 17.6 kWh lithium-ion battery.
