If smaller is better, you really can’t do any better than the Smart Fortwo, which has been completely redesigned for 2016. While the outgoing Smart models, cooperatively developed with Swatch back in the 1990s, were designed with Europe in mind, the latest, all-new 2016 Smart Fortwo puts the world in its lens.

Internationally, Smart has revealed both Fortwo and Forfour versions of this new generation of models. While the two-door, two-passenger Smart Fortwo is definitely coming to the U.S. and expected to go on sale by next fall the future of the new four-door, four-passenger Smart Forfour is still undecided on these shores.

The 2016 Smart Fortwo is redesigned for upcoming model. Designers followed the logic that the car must be smaller. And they have made it with 2016 Fortwo. This vehicle will be eagerly awaited all across the globe. Also, Forfour model could arrive soon after bas model of Fortwo. However, US sales of  Smart Fortwo 2016 will start next summer, and other version, Forfour is still not clear.

The 2016 Smart Fortwo has matured into a more serious contender in the microcar segment. It hasn’t lost its quirky and funky looks, but the Fortwo now sports improvements where it counts, including revised powertrains, new premium features, and a stronger body structure.

So after strongly hinting at the way forward with a series of show cars, Daimler revealed the all-new Smart Fortwo and its bigger brother, the Forfour, in July ahead of its debut at last month’s Paris Motor Show. With both the brand’s future and its supremacy in the urban mobility market hanging in the balance, we boarded a flight to Barcelona to see what Daimler had up its short sleeve. What we found was a two-seat city car that’s not just a substantial improvement over the model it replaces, but an altogether different beast one which doesn’t aspire to be everything to everyone, but just might be what drivers in the world’s densest urban cores will need and little more.

The 2016 Smart Fortwo will use a new platform for its building. It will be based on concept developed in cooperation with Renault. We know that car is going to use rear-engine layout, with rear-wheel drive system. Although Smart Fortwo 2016 is small car, it does look serious from outside. We have mesh grille and new headlights. Side is refreshed with few new lines and curves. However, it is again curvaceous. Inside, 2016 Fortwo is more lively. There are more bright colors in the cabin, and we have horizontal-shelf layout inside. Dashboard is revisited, with new rounded instrument panel with central console. Audio system is a part of upgraded infotainment system.

Although U.S. specifications haven’t been finalized yet, power will come from a turbocharged 898-cc three-cylinder engine making 90 horsepower and 100 pound-feet of torque. Shifting will be done via a completely new six-speed ‘Twinamic’ dual-clutch automatic transmission; there’s a five-speed manual to be offered in other markets, but don’t be surprised if it never arrives in the U.S. version. Expect gas mileage ratings to improve over the current model’s 34 mpg city, 38 highway EPA ratings. Ride and handling should be better, too. With a front MacPherson strut setup and a modified DeDion rear axle design, the suspension now has more travel, allowing better ride comfort. A sport package will likely be available, with stiffer settings and some appearance upgrades.

Without a doubt, the biggest question when it comes to replacing small cars is whether they should grow in size from one generation to the next. And when it comes to the new Smart Fortwo, the answer is both yes and no. Daimler has clearly paid careful attention to not make its new city car any longer than the tiny niche which the original carved out for itself. With the rubber already pushed out to the extremities, the Smart’s wheelbase has hardly grown any, either. And with an already upright orientation, neither has its height. Where the new Fortwo has grown is in width. At 65 inches, the new model is roughly four inches wider than the one it replaces, which might make it a little trickier to slot perpendicularly between full-sized parked cars, but it delivers more stable cornering and a roomier interior.

Our tester was also fitted with a seven-inch touchscreen (instead of the standard smartphone dock) that worked well along our route, as well as an optional adjustable tachometer/clock pod mounted atop the dashboard to the left of the standard TFT instrument display. We appreciated the supportive and adjustable seats, the sporty mesh dashboard trim, the spherical air vents and the simple climate controls that cleverly bridge the gap between cheap dials and costlier digital buttons with a magnifying glass sliding along a horizontal rule to set the desired temperature. Cargo capacity has increased incrementally as well, but a car as small as the Fortwo will still never be a top choice for hauling large items. However, Daimler claims a higher ratio of interior volume to exterior footprint than anything else in its diminutive class: measured from footwell to tailgate, the interior accounts for an impressive 75 percent of the car’s length.

The optimized packaging is enabled, to a large degree, by the position of the engine. Both the Fortwo and Forfour were developed in tandem with the new Renault Twingo we drove recently the Fortwo will continue to be produced at Daimler’s Smartville plant (ironically in France) with the Forfour to be built alongside the Twingo at Renault’s plant in Slovenia. Like the outgoing Fortwo, the new models pack a tiny three-cylinder engine all the way in the back. In order to take up as little usable space as possible, Daimler and Renault engineers (who remain tight lipped on the division of labor between them) canted the engine by 30 degrees, which necessitated a redesign of the cooling and lubrication systems to make sure water and oil still get to where they’re needed despite the altered gravitational forces. Slotting the engine in the back also means more evenly distributed weight front to rear, and with more space for the steering rack up front, a tighter turning circle.

As before, the Fortwo’s source of propulsion is found out back, behind the passenger seats. We’ll have to wait a bit to find out what engine(s) are headed to the U.S. as Smart has only released details for the Euro-spec model. That said, the 2016 Fortwo will launch in Europe with two engines, with a third coming at a later date. The first is a 1.0-liter inline-three rated 71 hp and 67 lb-ft of torque. Also offered will be a new 0.9-liter turbocharged I-3 that makes 90 hp and 100 lb-ft. The third engine will make 60 hp. While not announced yet, an all-electric powertrain should also be in the works.

It is not known what will be under the hood of the 2016 Smart Fortwo. Some experts predict, car is going to get naturally aspired unit which will be good for 70 hp. It could be 1.0-l drivetrain. Turbocharged version of this powertrain could produce up to 90 hp. We also have an announcement that 60 hp unit is being prepared, but this one could be launched few months after. However, last option of 2016 Fortwo won’t be available in US. Five-speed manual is standard transmission, thile new vehicle will offer six-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.

Europe and other markets will be offered a naturally aspirated engine displacing 1.0 liter that’s available in both 59- and 70-horsepower states of tune, the latter roughly equating to the output in the current model. A more potent option displaces less at 898cc, but it’s turbocharged to produce a more ample 89 hp. It’s also got variable intake valve timing and an electronically controlled turbo wastegate. This is the only engine Daimler will offer in North America at least upon its launch here in the second half of 2015 but that’s no bad thing. (An electric version will follow in 2016, and a more powerful Brabus version is under consideration.) Thankfully, gone is the much-maligned robotized manual transmission employed in previous iterations, replaced by a choice of a genuine five-speed manual or a new six-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
