Smart was never smart and its time is over.

The only real party trick that Smart had was that the first gen was short enough to be tolerated to park transversely in some European cities; As it grew in length and width significantly since then (yet not offering 2+2 seats like the Toyota iQ), even the most tolerant Southern Italian police man will still give you a ticket, and it is not that cheap, you can get an actual car for the money. I agree, it is no longer relevant....

and 99,9% of SMarts I see seem to be some rolling advertisement posters or some cheap rental cars, so probably no one buying them privately anyway...

How dare you! The infotainment screen/surrounding are revised AND the cup holder housing is different!

I really love the idea of Smart and honestly really like the way they look too. But they are just way too expensive. It's silly how much car for the money you (don't) get.

Should be sub $10k. Would be great for a shared city car.
$15k for the EV.

It's sort of sad to see them fail as the hype for "tinier things" in the early 2000s fell flat. Diminishing returns on diminishing size...
