Well, if some of you Checkered Flag Winners aren't so familiar with the friendly little smart cars, here's your chance to get schooled on the basics.
The instantly popular smart has much to brag about starting with their Mercedes-Benz Engineering. I have to admit, I was pleasantly surprised by the interior space of the smart fortwo. There's plenty of legroom and certainly more headroom than some of my friends' compacts. Tree huggers and bargain shoppers agree, the estimated 41 mpg efficiency of the smart is appealing across the boards! Also, I love that the smart fortwo is 95% recyclable! Why don't we have more vehicles that are as smart as smart?
Check out these interesting smart facts I picked up from David Bennett, one of our smart brand specialists over at Checkered Flag smart Center Virginia Beach.
