smart coupé

At the beginning of the 2003 model year, the smart coupé evolved into the second generation. Among them, the mostimportant technical modification lay in an increased enginedisplacement. The new engine features a displacement of698 cc, increased from the previous unit's 598 cc byextending the piston stroke as well as widening the bore.The basic architecture, remains unchanged from a three-cylinder turbocharged SOHC with a charge-air intercooler.As a result of this, the power output has increased to 45kWfrom 40kW and the maximum torque has been increased by80 Nm to 95 Nm. Additionally, such a high torque isgenerated at 2,000 rpm, a 500 rpm lower than the precedingengine, and consistently maintained up to 4,000 rpm.
The more dynamic engine is mated with "SOFTOUCH", a six-speed automatic transmission with a manual-mode function.A new gear ratio was determined according to thepower/torque increases. Ease of use has been furtherimproved through the standard Hill Start Assist that aids theIn terms of safety, the second-generation smart city-coupé is safeguarded more comprehensively by the ESP®(Electronic Stability Program) and the BAS (Brake AssistSystem) as standard.
The smart coupé has the sporty aluminum alloy wheels as standard. The optional sliding roof, offered as option,further enhances cabin comfort.

smart K

The smart K, launched in the Japanese market in October 2001, was designed exclusively to conform the Japanese kei-car standards by adopting specially developed rear fenders and modifying the track width and tire dimensions. As a result, with a reduced width of 1,470 mm, the smart K complies with the Japanese kei-car car standard. Also, the engine displacement remains unchanged from 598 cc, as specified in the standard.
