Smart forfour details:
The vehicle was manufactured at the Nedcar factory in the Netherlands in conjunction with Mitsubishi Motors. This is the same factory that manufactured Volvo 340 vehicles in 1970s and 1980s. To save production costs, the Smart Forfour shares most of its elements with the 2003 Mitsubishi Colt. This contains the chassis, suspension and a new generation of MIVEC petrol engines, ranging from the three cylinder 1. 1 to to the four cylinder 1. 3 and 1. 5 L with performance up to 80 Kw (109 PS). The 1. 5 L cdi diesel motor, on the contrary, is a three-cylinder Mercedes-Benz motor derived from the four-cylinder of the Mercedes-Benz A-class, and is available with either 68 PS or 95 PS.
A Brabus-prepared sports version has been available since 2005. It is powered by a turbocharged Mitsubishi 4G15 motor, developing 130 Kw (177 PS), 27 PS more than its "brother", the Mitsubishi Colt CZT. It can reach a maximum speed of 221 km/h (137 mph) and accelerate up to 100 Km/h (60 mph) in 6. 9 seconds. thanks to slow sales, the Forfour has been phased out from production.
