The smart fortwo edition highstyle is Euro 5 compliant. The microhybrid drive (start/stop) in the 52 kW variant shuts down the engine as soon as the driver brakes and the vehicle’s speed falls below 8 km/h (5 mph). The engine starts again in the fraction of a second when the driver releases the brake pedal. In urban traffic with frequent stop and go situations, fuel savings of almost 20% are possible with mhd.

The new smart fortwo edition highstyle features exclusive paintwork in chocolate brown metallic and 12-spoke 15" alloy wheels. The interior features a mix of fabric and leather. The new smart fortwo edition highstyle is based on the coupé passion. Among other features this equipment line comes with softouch automatic gear program, electric windows, air conditioning with automatic temperature control, and a panoramic roof with sunblind. Electric power steering, heated seats, a lockable glove compartment and the smart sound system with a smart MP3 interface are optionally available.
