In Pictures: How Small is Too Small?

1 of 6

If you say the Smart ForTwo is too tiny, few will argue with you. It seats two, and holds up to 12 cubic feet of cargo. Although it’s a good commuter car for the city, it’s a different story on the open road. With a zero to 60 mph crawl at 12.8 seconds, you need nerves of steel to drive a Smart next to Mack trucks. If that isn’t enough to deter you, in a 2009 crash test performed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the Fortwo was crashed with a Mercedes-Benz C-Class, went airborne and spun 450 degrees.
