And Then There Were 3

Well, I think I've narrowed down my new ride choices to 3. Either the Smart Car, a Vespa or a new bike. We're getting an official Smart Car dealership here in San Antonio with a scheduled opening sometime in February. I've been drooling over these for ten years after spotting my first one in France back in 1998.

Smart USA has officially announced pricing and sale date for the new ForTwo. It'll be available in three trim levels with the entry level Pure Coupe starting at $11,590.

All models get a five speed gearbox with an automatic clutch that can be shifted manually or left to switch gears automatically. The middle offering (above), the Passion Coupe, is the one I've got my eyes on. It's $13,590 and comes complete with a glass panorama roof, alloy wheels, and air conditioning.

For $16,590 drivers will be able to get open air motoring with the Passion Cabrio.

All three models get a 1.0L three-cylinder 71hp engine and should get mileage in the low to mid forties.

That's Right,
