fresh Cabrio style of the Smart Fortwo comes complete which has a novel, three-stage folding fabric roof
The two-seater Cabrio’s ‘tritop’ fabric roof can be pushed back as a more conventional sunroof, with the rear screen built into the item still up. Alternatively, the item can be fully folded onto the tailgate along with the rear screen, at which point the two roof rails can also be removed along with stored inside the boot to turn the item into a full convertible.
The roof, which is actually offered in three different colours, can be fully opened in 12 seconds, even when the vehicle is actually travelling at top speed. the item can also be opened via outside the vehicle using the key fob.
Design-wise, the cabrio shares its look with the standard hard-top Smart Fortwo on which the item is actually based. The Mercedes-Benz-owned brand has, however, improved upon rigidity underneath the vehicle to compensate for the lack of a fixed roof.
A steel cross has been added beneath the vehicle, the A-pillars have been reinforced, along with the front along with rear bulkheads have been beefed up. The result is actually a car in which is actually 15% stiffer than its predecessor.
The engine range of the Fortwo cabrio is actually shared with the hard-top, meaning a pair of three-cylinder petrol units is actually offered: a normally aspirated 70bhp 1.0-litre along with an 89bhp turbocharged 0.9-litre. Transmission options include a a few-speed manual along which has a DCT dual-clutch automatic.
The fresh Smart Fortwo Cabrio will be available to order via mid-November, when prices will be revealed. The style will reach dealers in February 2016.
