Smart has released a new teaser video for the next generation ForTwo and ForFour, thus hinting at an imminent full reveal.

The teaser clip shows how Smart's recent concepts have influenced the upcoming ForTwo and ForFour which will both be reportedly introduced on July 16. The duo will share 70 percent of their components with the all-new Renault Twingo so expect the engine lineup to include a three-cylinder 1.0-liter naturally aspirated unit with 70 PS (51 kW) and 91 Nm (67 lb-ft) as well as a three-cylinder 0.9-liter turbocharged motor rated at 90 PS (66 kW) and 135 Nm (100 lb-ft). There should also be a beefier Brabus variant packing 100 PS (74 kW). An electric variant has already been confirmed but probably won't be offered from day one.

Smart's overhauled ForTwo is said to be 100mm wider (at 1659mm) while retaining the same 2569mm overall length. Bigger changes are planned for the ForFour which will measure 3500mm, thus making it 252mm shorter than its predecessor. Both of them will feature a rear-wheel drive layout and are going to be offered with a 5-speed manual transmission and a dual-clutch 6-speed 'box at an additional cost.

It is believed the cars will be available on order on July 31 and customers will start getting them in September. Other known features include a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, front bumper-mounted turn signals and daytime running lights built into the headlights and likely featuring LEDs. Inside there will be a multi-function three-spoke steering wheel and a tachometer mounted near the A-pillar.
