We’re Taking a Tiny Road Trip in a Tiny Smart Car
Some of the best things in life are tiny; kittens, LEGOs, tangerines. But does the same rule apply for cars? Here in the U.S., the Smart ForTwo is somewhat of a social pariah. But with a fully revamped platform, and even quirkier looks, Smart hopes to win back some buyers looking for a small, efficient city car with a bit of personality. So we thought what better way to really put the new Smart ForTwo to the test than to take it on a road trip—a tiny road trip, of course. We’ll be driving from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, up to Kissimmee, Florida, on Friday for the ongoing Mecum Auction. There will be plenty of beautiful classic cars to see when we get there, but it’s the road—and car—in between that we’ll be exited try out for ourselves (we hope).

The brand new Smart ForTwo in our driveway features a 1.0-liter 3-cylinder engine, 89 horsepower, and up to 39 mpg highway. With just over 200 miles of road on the way to Kissimmee, that's not bad all things considered. Let’s hope this city-focused Smart car can handle the task of Florida highway driving.
