Most newer Smarts have a number of beneficial safety features
- Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) is a smart safety system that automatically applies the car's brakes if the driver doesn't react quickly enough to a hazard ahead, the system can help avoid or mitigate potential collisions.
- Crosswind assist activates at speeds of more than 50 mph on straight roads and slight bends. It controls the braking of individual wheels to help you keep the car on course without having to put so much effort into the steering.
- Hill start assist prevents your car from rolling backwards when moving off on a hill. When you move your foot from the brake pedal to the accelerator pedal, it'll maintain the brake pressure so you don't accidentally roll back.
- Lane Keeping Assist helps prevent you from accidentally leaving your lane. A camera scans the road markings to detect the differences in contrast between the road surface and the lines. If you start to drift, it alerts you with a visual warning and a sound.
- ESP® - Electronic Stability Programme - this system compares the Smart Car's behaviour to your driving inputs. If necessary, it can brake individual wheels and adjust torque to stabilise the car.
So, where do Smart stand on electric cars?
Here's the lowdown:
Smart has the Fortwo and Forfour in its electric vehicle range, combining the best features of their existing models with zero emissions engines.
Both models boast the ability to travel up to 70 miles on a single charge.
All smart EQ Fortwo and Forfour models are in Vehicle Excise Duty Band A, so you’ll pay no road tax. You’ll also qualify for the Office of Low Emission Vehicles which offers up to £3,500 off the cost of the car.
