smart forfour named City Car of the Year at UK Car of the Year Awards


smart was recently voted UK City Car of the Year at the 2016 UK Car of the Year Awards. The awards were judged by the country’s most influential motoring journalists where the smart forfour was recognised as both “full of character” and “young-at-heart”.

The judges said the smart forfour offered “great packaging and a great drive” while also commenting that the car is “small but surprisingly practical and affordable to own.” They concluded that “smart is one of those brands that are easy to describe: urban, young-at-heart, intelligently packaged, eco-minded and well, smart.”

The smart forfour is an innovative four-seater vehicle which is ready for the city with its compact size and traditional smart agility. The new smart forfour has been designed to tackle the demands of city driving, including innovative assistance systems to avoid accidents, a state-of-the-art smart multi-media system and striking two-tone body design.

Krishan Bodhani, Head of smart UK, commented: “The smart brand is growing faster than ever. Last year sales increased by 95% and we outperformed the brand’s previous nine years. Winning the ‘City Car’ title is proof that the smart forfour is as popular with the motoring media as it is with our customers.”
