SMART FORTWO MHD PULSE 1.0 SOFTOUCH AUTOMATIC finished in Light Blue Metallic with Silver Tridion safety cell and Black cloth/partial leather look upholstery. This is a beautiful example of the fun to drive, characterful and incredibly cheap to run Fortwo range. This car has the 1.0 12 valve MHD petrol engine with 71 bhp, coupled to a five speed Softouch automatic gearbox. With the assistance of its standard stop/start system it can return a phenomenal 65.7 mpg on the combined cycle, is a very low group 2 insurance and benefits from free road tax. Performance is surprisingly lively too, with a top speed limited to 90 mph and a 0-60 time of 13.3 seconds. The Fortwo is like nothing else to drive with its rear engine; rear wheel drive layout and diminutive size, it handles like a little go-kart with a firm but not uncomfortable ride quality. It nips away from the traffic lights remarkably quickly with an appealingly sporty growl from its three cylinder engine. The gearbox can be used in fully automatic (Softouch) mode, or for a sportier feel you can zap through the gears manually (Softip mode) using the paddleshifters on the steering wheel – just like an F1 car!! There is an amazing amount of room in the cabin considering the tiny exterior dimensions, two adults will have plenty of leg stretching space and generous headroom too. The boot isn’t exactly huge but can easily accommodate the weekly shop or a couple of smaller suitcases. The passenger seat can also fold flat to make room for longer items when necessary. There are a few handy, user friendly features fitted too, such as – a lockable glovebox, front door storage nets, roller blind load cover with integral storage net (£65 optional extra), drivers storage shelves, dashboard storage drawer, large storage box in the lower tailgate section and a 12V power socket. Despite its small size the unique Smart Tridion safety cell provides reassuring crash protection backed up by its four star result in the Euro NCAP crash tests. It also comes equipped with driver and passenger airbags, ABS brakes and ESP stability and traction control to keep you as safe as possible if the worst happens. This Pulse model has a decent goodie count too, spec includes – air conditioning, electric windows, 15 inch alloy wheels, remote central locking and its original Smart RDS stereo with auxiliary MP3 connector socket and USB port.

This Smart has a great pedigree. It was originally supplied by Smart of Swindon to a gentleman from the same town. The same main dealer then supplied the vehicle again to another gentleman from Swindon back in June 2015, and he has owned it ever since. There is a full service history with three stamps in the book, all from the supplying Smart dealership. Together with the MOT records this obviously confirms the sensible mileage of just over 45,000 and also proves that the car has been properly maintained throughout its life. It is presented in excellent condition throughout and looks absolutely stunning in its lovely colour combination of pale blue and silver metallic paintwork with contrasting black upholstery. It is set off in particular by the racy alloys and front fog lamps, whilst the interior is enhanced by the nice to hold leather rimmed sports steering wheel and gearknob, classy half leather effect seats, plus the metallic effect door handles and air vents with matching inserts on the steering wheel, gearknob and glovebox lid. This vehicle also benefits from its original set of tailored to fit carpet overmats. If you are looking for a compact runabout that is absolutely unbeatable for urban use – then the Smart Fortwo is the perfect car for you, and in this price range I really don’t think you will find one better than this anywhere. With its ideal two private owner, full Smart history provenance backing up the below average mileage, plus the beautiful colour combo and virtually unmarked condition – this is a superb example that is a credit to its former keepers. Very affordable to purchase and fantastic value for money at only £3,995!
