The second generation, build series W451 (internally: C 451, Coupé – A 451, Cabrio), was introduced in November 2006—its length increased by 200 mm to 2,690 mm (106.1 in) and offering improved crash performance. The second generation retained the interchangeable plastic body panels as well as the prominent exposed, rigid steel safety cell, which is 50% high-strength steel, hot-dip galvanised and powder-coated—and marketed as Tridion.
The range received a minor interior facelift for model year 2011 with standard knee airbags, new instrument cluster, more extensive cloth trimming for the top of the instrument panel, circular rather than rectangular outboard dash vents, optional multimedia system with a 6.5" display, and optional surround-sound audio system. For model year 2013 all Fortwo's received a minor exterior facelift with revised lower facias, front and rear, and a relocated brand emblem located inside rather than above the front grille.
The second generation Fortwo remained the lightest production car on sale in Europe.

2015 smart fortwoSkye's smart, not dumb #1154.524
The car wasn't delivered to LAX but you have to pick up at a place near the airport.
Car does the job for getting around LA. Once I found the car, things were easy, but the car is NOT at the airport. You have to take an uber and spend $10 each way to get from the airport to the car and back when you're done. Also, the burden is on you to find parking for the car once you get back, as he doesn't have a designated spot for it and you have to find street parking. That aside, Skye answered immediately whenever I contacted him, which was great.
His car wasn't clean He didn't meet at the airport; had to spend my own money to meet him Unprofessional Was ignoring phone calls Didn't meet me at the end of reservation; instead he said leave the car at Denny and put keys under mat VERY RUDE
Skye was a really nice guy. The car was in good condition and I had no problems with it. The one negative is that I had to wait on him since he was about an hour late. I would rent from him again however.
