Smart 2.4L iVTEC 4-cylinder feels bigger than 166 hp on flat ground; comfortable seats with excellent positioning. Solid, quiet road presence with good handling. Ample cargo room. Attractive shape. Smart “kid watch” mirror in overhead console.
Rear visibility could be better. Engine feels smaller than 166-hp on any incline.
It looks like a Honda, rides like a Honda, and works like a Honda, which means you could live happily—and cheaply—with it for a long time. Though ultimately underpowered, even the AWD model gets decent fuel economy, returning 27 mpg highway.
