Description

The Passion Smart is a Sporty Little two seater gas driven automobile that is very popular in Europe and San Francisco because it fits into spaces for parking and turning that no other car can. It is half the size of a Toyota Corolla. It cruises at 70 MPH and only uses 40 Miles per gallon of fuel. It is a utility automobile that does not have fancy features although we provide an external GPS for free as part of the package. Black interior with two bucket seats and automatic transmission that feels like a manual (Manual mode is optional on Stick) We provide USB Cigaret lighter charging ports and cables. It carries two passengers comfortably with lots of leg room and head room for someone over six feet tall. People say that once they are in the passenger seat they feel like they are not in a small two seater car. It has a 5 star safety rating and is a Mercedes Dealer product although branded under the Smart name Plenty of room for two suitcases behind the front seats. . It's best feature is that it is "Zippy" to drive and fun. Enjoy "Zippy" my sporty little Passion Smart Car.

Faqs

  • Is SMart Car Electric?

    There are smart cars that are Electric but My car "Zippy' is all Gas with a 1000 cc gas engine and it takes premium Unleaded gas. It can get up to 40 MPG.

  • Is A Smart Car Safe?

    Smart Cars are very safe and the US has Given the smart a 5 star safety rating with 5 airbags including curtain and Knee airbags and seat and dash airbags. Mercedes is the dealer for the Smart and they are known for High end safety standards. There is a safety shell surrounding the driver that acts like a cage of protection. First innovation for small vehicle safety. Smart car was a collaboration between Mercedes Benz and the developer of the Swatch Watch.. It is extremely fun to drive.

  • Can the smart go on the highway?

    Yes, The smarts are rated up to 85 MPH but I recommend going at no more than 70MPH with my little smart because it is only a small engine that you do not want to over stress. It zips along on the highway at 70 MPH just fine. If you are looking for a longer trip I would recommend one of our other vehicles especially our tesla for the comfort factor. Don’t forget the 40 miles per gallon fuel economy. Because of the small size wind may be a factor in open areas and you need to be attentive with such a small vehicle. In the city she is dream to drive getting around traffic easily and you can park in half the spot of normal cars.

  • How to Open Trunk Lift Gate back of car.

    When you press the key open switch twice. All car doors open including rear lift gate. A button just above the license plate (Rubber handle) when push will release the upper lift gate(glass window ) open the glass liftgate window that acts like a typical hatchback liftgate, then the lower liftgate latches are accessible & will fold down when the two side switches on the right & left side tabs on the door are fulled toward you at the same time to release liftgate door that will fold down toward you.

Easy pick up and return with lockbox at airport lot. Car gets great mileage and was surprisingly roomy for a small 2 seater. GPS included was a nice touch.
