It has a three cylinder supercharged engine. About 54 to 65 hp I think in the Roadster. Sequential manumatic shifter.

The Smart fortwo is fairly roomy inside, I think you will be tighter in a single cap pick up truck.

In our wedding, back in 99, the bride limo was a Smart. Her uncle has the first one sold in Barcelona to zip around the city.

The popularity in Europe is due to its urban traffic capabilities. In some cities you are allowed to park perpendicular to the curb when everybody else has to do it along it (as bigcomfy mentioned)

OH!! There is a Brabus (higher performance) version of the Smart Fortwo coming out with about 100 hp! "Should be good for 0-60 in under 10.0 seconds"

I'm still confident that currently the Fortwo is the only one being made. I think they stopped making all other models for now.

I checked out the smart.com and smart usa websites. The Fortwo is the only one being made at this time. The other models are not being made any more. I also saw it on Top Gear, the sales were not sufficient to keep the other models in production.
