SMART FORFOUR LAUNCHED IN IRELAND

  • First smart with four seats and four doors goes on sale in Ireland
  • First smart with diesel engine in Ireland
  • First manual gearbox in a smart

smart has announced Irish prices for the new forfour, starting from Euro 14,995 for the special launch black edition.

The smart forfour, the first smart with four seats and five doors, is available with a range of five powerful engines, including two responsive diesel engines built by Mercedes-Benz; the first time customers have been able to buy a diesel smart in Ireland. 

The lively 1.1 litre, 3 cylinder petrol engine in pulse trim is available from Euro 16,395, rising to Euro 23,495 for the 3 cylinder 1.5 cdi (95 bhp) in passion trim.  The range will also feature a manual gearbox for the first time, while still offering smart’s softouch automated gearbox as an option.

Jeremy Simpson, Head of smart in the UK and Ireland, said: “This extremely attractive pricing is great news for customers and means the smart forfour is an absolute must for the shopping lists of anyone looking to buy a distinctive but practical small car.” 

As well as offering 30 exterior colour combinations, the smart forfour’s innovative and versatile interior offers a high degree of functionality combined with the emotional appeal common to all smart models.  Customers will be able to choose from two design and equipment lines: the entry level pulse version and the top of the range passion model.

In keeping with the high level of innovation customers have come to expect from smart, all the available engines in the smart forfour offer a much higher horsepower from a small cylinder capacity engine, than many of its competitors.  For example the smart 1.1 litre petrol engine gives the same output as some competitors’ 1.4 litre engines, whilst offering better fuel consumption and lower CO2 emissions.

Customers can get more information about the smart forfour, including details of their local retailer, by logging onto www.smart.com/uk or by calling 0808 000 8080.
