Is the Smart car REALLY smart?

It looks small and dangerous. So, if it's smart, what does it have? Or does it save you? Or did Smart put out a random name out and it isn't smart at all.

^^ 'bout it.

If anything, it'll crumple you up like a tin can and you with it.

Besides, I'm too large to fit in one. Try sticking a toothpick in a HotWheels sometime.

And even then, it's not dramatically more fuel efficient than a Honda Civic or Toyota Corolla unless you're doing a ton of city/traffic driving.

Then why would they call their car company, Smart? Random name?

Because it got people's attention and was a functional gimmick.

A Smart car gets roughly the same fuel economy as a late '90's Honda Civic HX.

False. The passenger space of a Smart Fortwo is extremely well reinforced. The crumple zones crumple, like with all modern cars, and it protects the people inside.

The actual usefulness of the Smart brand is parking in cities with tough parking. That's what these cars are all about. San Francisco, Boston, New York City, etc.

The main question was does the Smart car company really make smart cars? It's small and sorta dangerous. Maybe not.

I don't think a truly smart car exists right now.
