New Generation smart fortwo Lowers Fuel Consumption

The new generation smart fortwo, to be launched in the autumn of 2010, will feature engines with lower fuel consumption, as well as a fresh interior look and an upgraded exterior.

The 40 kW cdi turbodiesel features CO2 emissions of just 86 g/km. The optimized gasoline engines also lower their CO2 emissions. Resulting from work on the engine control unit and exhaust system, both the 45 kW mhd and the 52 kW mhd consume 4.2 liters of gasoline per 100 km (56 mpg US) (combined figure)—corresponding to CO2 emissions of 97 g/km (combined figure).

The 62 kW version consumes 4.9 liters of fuel over 100 km (48 mpg US), corresponding to CO2 emissions of 114 g/km. The power output of the BRABUS version has been increased from 72 kW to 75 kW. Despite this, at 119 g CO2 per 100 kilometers (combined figure) even the more powerful engine remains below the 120 gram threshold.
