This smart, the third smart we've owned, is rally red and ready to go, with touch-screen navigation and cruise control.
Cruise control is not standard on most smarts, but it *is* standard on this one.
Power steering is not standard on smart cars, but it *is* on this one. If you thought a standard smart could whip a tight turn, "you ain't seen nothin yet"
It has a parking sticker for zone C, which lets you exceed the two hour limits in Nob Hill and the closer parts of Russian Hill, North Beach, and Chinatown.
And no car finds San Francisco street parking easier than a smart. Nothing. A Scion IQ? 10 inches longer. A Mini? Not so mini. A Fiat 500? Ha!
And a Smart with power steering, "now you're cooking with gas".
Touch screen GPS works great to navigate, either to an address or to an intersection destination.
The touch screen stereo/GPS has Bluetooth connectivity to your smartphone, a microSD slot, and a CD slot that can take even a CD full of MP3s (but please *no video*. it's illegal in California). (Audio input is Bluetooth, AUX analog audio is not connected.)
It's a great little car for one or two people, and the amount you can store in the hatchback is surprisingly bit.
No pets, unless very well contained. Any evidence of animal damage or smoking will result in cleaning fees and penalties.
Not suitable for three or more ;-)
It gets 35-44 MPG on the highway, depending on how fast you drive and how much start/stop. When I set the cruise control for 65, I always break 40 MPG. I've even hit 50 MPG for flat miles at a time. The cruise control package comes with instant and trip-average MPG display.
Oh, and it has a surprisingly large usable area for your stuff in the back, and if you fold down the passenger seat, you can fit even more. Did I mention I carried a washing machine home once?
It's a great little car suitable for a great drive. And did I mention it'll park in spaces other cars didn't even consider?
Request with confidence- I keep my calendar up to date and respond as quickly as I can.
