The 2011 Smart Fortwo’s 33-mpg city rating doesn’t wow—especially considering it only carries two—but lots of emphasis on recycled materials and recyclability tips the scales.

33 mpg city, 41 highway
U.S. EPA

ForTwo models averaged 38.8 mpg.
Consumer Guide




EPA fuel economy ratings for the 2011 Smart Fortwo, at 33 mpg city, 41 mpg highway, just aren't that impressive. And that's even before considering that premium fuel is required.

Larger and more capacious hybrids, including the Honda Insight and Toyota Prius, do better without the sacrifices, though admittedly they're pricier. However a growing legion of subcompact and compact cars, ranging from the Ford Fiesta to the larger Chevrolet Cruze Eco and Hyundai Elantra, can haul four or five passengers and achieve at least 40 mpg on the highway.

The Fortwo's body panels are made of plastic and are molded in color with eco-friendly water-soluble paints, while 100-percent recyclable synthetics are used in several aspects inside.

A greener, all-electric Smart Electric Drive model is in the works, but it's not yet available to the public in 2011.

Conclusion

The 2011 Smart Fortwo’s 33-mpg city rating doesn’t wow—especially considering it only carries two—but lots of emphasis on recycled materials and recyclability tips the scales.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
