Coming To Europe: Deluxe 'Edition Highstyle' Smart Fortwo

August 26, 2009

Nearly everything is shrinking these days -- electronics, the economy, the globe (thanks, Facebook) -- but with few exceptions, luxury automakers have been reluctant to join the "less is more" crowd. Bucking that trend, Daimler has announced plans for an "Edition Highstyle" of the Smart fortwo. Its "exclusive" brown paint job isn't a huge selling point, but the leathery interior (seats, steering wheel, instrument panel) gives a posh feel, as does the panoramic roof. So far it's exclusive to Europe, but given Daimler's growing interest in the U.S., you might see one of these brown bombshells cruising the interstate before long. [MotorAuthority]
