Following in the footsteps of the smart fortwo with 52 kW/71 hp, the smart fortwo with 66 kW/90 hp and the smart forfour with 52 kW/71 hp are now also available with fully automatic twinamic dual clutch transmission. This costs an extra 1275 euros compared to the versions with 5-speed manual transmission (forfour: 1425 euros). This means that both model series now offer a choice between no fewer than nine engine/transmission combinations. Delivery of the new models will begin at the end of July 2015. At the same time, smart has made some detail modifications to the interior: the prime equipment line is now available exclusively in black-grey. The passion equipment line is now additionally available in black-grey.
The benefits of the twinamic are enhanced ease of shifting as well as especially smooth gearshifts without interruption of tractive power. Unique in the small/micro car segment, the dual clutch transmission meets the needs of all those drivers who, while valuing the convenience of an automatic transmission in city traffic, wish to keep the option of sporty manual shifting. The optional Sport package with shift paddles on the steering wheel makes for even greater driving pleasure.
