Smart has published a design sketch depicting the upcoming fourjoy concept which will be unveiled next week at IAA in Frankfurt.
With the fourjoy concept Smart is offering a first glimpse at the next generation of the ForTwo. As the name implies, the concept will be a four-seater and could have removable doors. The front fascia is host to sweptback headlights, a prominent grille and generous fog lights. Described as a "forerunner of a new smart generation", fourjoy should come with big alloy wheels residing within the muscular wheel arches.
As for the next-gen ForTwo, it's scheduled to go on sale early 2015 in Europe and several months later in the United States. It will be approximately 25-50mm (1-2 inches) longer and 76-101mm (3-4 inches) wider than the current model. Smart USA General Manager Mark Webster said the car's design will be "a change but not a breakthrough" and the model will most likely be available in "different editions and different variants."
