The smart brand came bursting on to the scene 1994, as a cool and funky urban offshoot of its parent brand, Daimler AG, owners of Mercedes-Benz. The original smart was a two-seat city runabout that became known as the ‘fortwo’, a second generation version of which was launched in 2007. We’re now on the third-generation model, which was launched in 2015 and shares much of its engineering with a Renault Twingo. If you’re looking for a smart car lease, there are two body styles to choose from: the coupe and cabriolet. Those smart car lease drivers needing five doors might also want to know there’s a four-seat version of this model, the forfour.
If you’re looking at a smart lease, bear in mind that both designs are now available in full-electric form – variants which use a 60kW (81bhp) electric motor mated to a one-speed auto transmission. These models have a powerful onboard charger as standard, which allows for a quick charging time of just 2.5 hours. If you’re looking at smart car lease deals, but you’re more interested in performance, you’ll want to consider the BRABUS-badged versions, available across the range, which use a 109bhp 0.9-litre turbo powerplant able to reach 62mph in under 11 seconds.
