introducing the smart fortwo micro hybrid drive
The micro hybrid drive comes with all the features to make your life infinitely easier. It’s functional, comfortable and unmistakably smart. The high quality design and features provide safety and comfort levels that redefine the small car segment.
Also worth a mention is that the micro hybrid drive comes with a racy high torque petrol engine rated at 52kW.
When it comes to negotiating urban traffic, studies have shown that a car comes to a stop every 1.3 km on average – at traffic lights or in a traffic jam.
Based on this intelligence smart mhd technology implements an idea that is simply brilliant – the automatic start/stop principle. When the vehicle approaches red traffic lights, for example, the micro hybrid drive shuts down the engine as soon as the car falls below a speed of 8 km/h and you press the brake pedal. The engine starts again in a fraction of a second as soon as you release the brake, and the journey can continue without interruption.
The result? Fuel savings are maximised by predictive engine shut-down as the car rolls to a stop at a speed of less than 8 km/h. A truly fuel-saving and earth-loving idea.
What’s more, these super-sized benefits come with only a slight additional weight of approx. 10 kg compared with the standard smart fortwo.

More about standard features.
The smart fortwo is a real trendsetter in terms of safety development in small cars. The fortwo boasts a number of active safety systems. The electronic stability programme (esp®) is a standard feature in every smart. When the vehicle is in danger of swerving, esp® throttles the engine torque and brakes specific individual wheels in order to stabilise the car. Hydraulic brake assist makes a decisive contribution to driving safety. It automatically initiates controlled emergency braking when you step on the brake pedal quickly( but not firmly enough).
