Smart 451 Roof on Passion Coupe

Close up of Smart Car Roof If you have the passion coupe model of the new 2008 smart 451 then you are in for a treat as the roof is not only amazing for the driver its an amazing feat of engineering.

Canadian 2008/451 Smart Passion Review

Smart 451 Today I manage to get an hour with a Canadian version of the 2008 Passion smart car.

Canadian 2008 smart fortwo 451 all Models

Canadian smart fortwo 2008 Brochure While the car's might not be all here yet the brochure for the Canadian model of the 2008 smart car is and its well worth a read. Even though the American version will have a few different options most of the things are the same in terms of the engine spec and style.

Smart USA hasn't released a brochure yet and I would think part of the delay is that some parts the US smart is getting are actually exclusive to the US and smart hasn't had time to get this all printed. Canada… Continue
