One stage removed from a mobility scooter, hardly any room for the shopping, and no respect from 4x4's.

Friends of ours have one which I presume they are fond of? Easy parking in the blue badge zone, but as the bays are generally wider than standard, well no not really.:

Seriously uncool, I tend to think some folk who buy them are like the Prius set.
That said for the work commute..

Uncool. But as Sif said, the little coupe is cool

Brabus ones are a bit cooler though

Funny isn't it, I only popped in here to make sure Shant wasn't making a fool of hmself and what do I find?

NOT 'cool', it might be clever in the town, feel funky, be regarded as chic, but it ain't cool.

Everyone has his personal opinion. If not then why have the cool wall?

My neighbour sold his MGTF and got one of these, I now joke with him that he has given up on motoring but at least he's allowed to drive it on the pavement

The first series had some design flair like the "wave" dashboard and nice form , but the current one is more like a commercial vehicle especially the Sprinteresque interior . Fun Yah?

I dont know about the new one but my friend bought the first version smart a couple of days ago and its so noisy inside when you drive it it really makes your head go bang.

Its a fun little car to drive but its too noisy from inside
