Smart cars on DesperateSeller.co.uk

When smart launched its City-Coupe and City Cabrio in 1998, it's fair to say it was a little ahead of its time. The concept of an ultra-compact, economical city car with a funky image designed expressly for use in town is one that's being employed extensively by manufacturers today.

A historic view on Smart

When the first smarts came on the scene, UK buyers didn't quite know what to make of it but now the brand's foresight is being appreciated, smart used cars are a very attractive proposition. Smart cars looked rather expensive when new, considering how little car you were getting for your money, but they work extremely well in town once you've got the hang of the idiosyncratic clutchless gearbox. Both coupe and convertible came in a wide range of different colour schemes, so it will be unusual to find two pre-owned smarts that look the same. The smart city car was renamed the Fortwo in 2004, making way for the larger Forfour supermini model which shared a platform with the Mitsubishi Colt. The smart Roadster had also been introduced by this stage and remains a decent bet as a used second hand sports car with low running costs. By 2006 smart's expansion plans had been scaled back with both the Forfour and the Roadster having been discontinued. Best smart second hand car is the second generation Fortwo launched in 2007. The better gearbox, higher quality interior, increased space and a smoother driving experience made this a big improvement over the original. A smart used car will hold its value better than the average city car model, so buy a used smart and you should get a decent return when you sell it on.
