The only direct competitor for the 2014 Smart ForTwo is the Scion iQ, which is less unpleasant on highways and is more suited to mixed-speed commuting use.
You can almost fit three adults into the Scion's "3+1" seating, and it offers many modern features unavailable on the Smart.
The Smart Electric Drive's nearest competitior is the Mitsubishi i-MiEV, which is slow and small, but offers four seats and four doors.
If you view the Smart as a lifestyle car, both the MINI Cooper and Fiat 500 may be competitors as well, though they're pricier.
The biggest challenge is that five-door subcompact hatchbacks like the Honda Fit and Hyundai Accent are no more money than a nicely equipped Smart, offer twice as many doors and seats, and get close to the same gas mileage.
The same also applies to the Chevy Sonic, Ford Fiesta, and Kia Rio--limiting the Smart to those buyers who value its unparalleled ability to park anywhere above all else.
