But there's no sign of a power hike.

Available for coupe and cabriolet body styles, the new optional kit costs $1,900 and brings a series of cosmetic and mechanical upgrades available on models with manual or twinamic transmissions on passion, prime and proxy trim levels. Fitted with the Sport Package, the ForTwo models will ride 0.4 inches (10 mm) lower and will benefit from a stiffer anti-roll bar and a bespoke damping system optimized by Brabus. Smart says that with the tweaks in place, the ForTwo Coupe and Cabrio will provide better handling and a sportier ride.

Also part of the package is a fresh wheel set with 16-inch front and 17-inch rear alloys shod in Yokohama summer performance tires measuring 185/50 R16 and 205/40 R17, respectively. You also get a matte grey rear diffuser and Brabus center caps, while the body-colored front spoiler and rear apron are both the work of Brabus.

Stepping inside the cabin, the optional kit encompasses brushed stainless steel sport pedals with rubber studs for a dash of extra sportiness. Both models come with a three-spoke multifunction sport steering wheel from the Brabus catalog and a different upholstery finish depending on the selected trim level. Go for a model fitted with the optional six-speed, dual-clutch twinamic transmission and you will also get paddle shifters mounted on the steering wheel. As a final touch, Brabus will slap its logo onto the handbrake lever and gear knob.

There aren’t any power upgrades included in the kit, so the cars will continue to feature a turbocharged three-cylinder, 0.9-liter engine with 89 hp (66 kW) and 100 lb-ft (135 Nm) of torque. It will be enough for a 0-62 mph (0-100 kph) sprint in 10.1 seconds (10.5s for twinamic-fitted model) before maxing out at 91 mph (146 kph) regardless of gearbox choice.

The Brabus Sport Package tailored to the 2017 ForTwo Coupe and Cabriolet will be available this fall.
