Yes, it's an economy car, but the standard and optional features on the 2009 Smart Fortwo are still disappointing to many reviewers.

Reviews read by TheCarConnection.com all mention that the Pure comes with little more than four wheels and an engine. Cars.com notes "basic amenities like power steering and a radio are optional." While Edmunds points out that the Pure comes standard with "keyless entry, leather steering wheel and electric window defroster," the cheaper trim of the Smart Fortwo starts at only $11,590. The standard features list on the 2009 Smart Fortwo grows somewhat for the more expensive Passion trim level, which Cars.com says "adds a fixed glass roof, alloy wheels, power windows, air conditioning and a two-speaker CD stereo with iPod connectivity." The only difference between the Smart Fortwo Passion Coupe and Cabriolet is that "the Passion Cabrio adds an upgraded stereo with MP3-compatible in-dash six-CD changer."

You might expect an expansive options list to compensate for the minimal amount of standard features on the 2009 Smart Fortwo, but you’d be wrong. There is little available aside from adding the Passion's standard items to the Pure. The only other noteworthy optional feature is the available "two-tone paint," according to ConsumerGuide. There are a few conspicuously absent features on the 2009 Smart Fortwo, but Cars.com conjectures that perhaps the most glaring omission is that "cruise control is not available." Kelley Blue Book says that "the 2009 Smart Fortwo's options list includes heated leather seats, a fixed panorama glass roof and a sport steering wheel with paddle shifters."

Conclusion

The price is low, and the features aren’t plenty; the 2009 Smart Fortwo is definitely an economy car.

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.
