2008 smart fortwo

The 2008 smart fortwo makes its U.S. debut with a good amount of buzz in the background. An eco-friendly mini-car best suited for urban roads, the fortwo comes in three trims that sound like tropical drinks: pure, passion, and the passion convertible.  

The '08 fortwo measures 8.8 feet long, 5.1 feet tall, and 5.1 wide, with smart claiming you can fit two fortwos in a single parking space. Gas mileage comes out to around 40 mpg, and top speed hits 90 mph. The trunk holds 8 cubic feet of cargo. If you're worried about safety, the smart fortwo features a "safety cell" consisting of three layers of steel.

So far, the fortwo gets props for its unique look and stable ride. On the other hand, remember that the fortwo rides best in the city, so make sure not to veer off onto the highway. Overall, the fortwo looks like a cool car that should do well in a market looking to go green.
