smart fortwo cabrio Coming To U.S. Early Next Summer
The new smart fortwo cabrio, with the same 89 horsepower three- cylinder engine as the coupe, can be combined with the five-speed manual transmission or the fully automatic twinamic dual clutch transmission. At the touch of a button its 19.4 sq-ft sliding canvas sunroof soft top completely opens in twelve seconds and removable roof bars can be stowed on the inside of the tailgate. With the 3-button key the soft top can also be opened from outside the car by remote control. The rear windscreen is heated and is made of glass. The torsional strength has been improved by around 15 percent compared with the predecessor. The open-top two-seater in pure (standard), passion, prime and proxy trim levels, will make its world premiere in a few weeks at the Frankfurt Auto Show and will launch in the U.S. in early summer of 2016.
