This is the Smartest car I’ve ever reviewed!

This is the all-new Smart #1!

When you think of Smart cars, chances are you remember tiny cars like the ForTwo or ForFour. However, the #1 is clearly much bigger than these, and now sits as a competitor to the likes of the Megane E-Tech and Kia Niro EV!

So let’s see how this all-new Smart stacks up. Starting with the design, it looks pretty impressive on the outside. There are full-length light bars at both the front and rear, and the back of the car is giving us serious Mercedes EQB vibes! Along the side, you’ll see a set of smart-looking 19-inch alloy wheels, as well as flush door handles to help with aerodynamics. It also comes with a two-tone paint job, which is a nice touch.

Step inside and the good looks continue! The #1 comes with a minimalist design, with nearly all controls running through the central infotainment screen. That’s a bit annoying when you come to control things while driving, but thankfully it comes with voice controls and the screen is pretty easy to use. The cabin is largely covered in soft-touch materials, and the build quality is pretty good. Unfortunately, though the digital driver’s display is a bit small, if you pick the Premium trim, you’ll be treated to a heads-up display as well.

There are two trims to choose from – the entry-level Pro+ or the Premium. Both come with a single electric motor that can produce 272hp. Both cars come with a 62kWh battery pack, but while the Pro+ can run for a range of up to 260 miles, the Premium can run up to 273 miles.

The starting price of the Smart #1 is around £36,000. So is it worth it? You’ll need to stick with Mat to see for yourself!
