Car loan customers may be impressed by smart technology

People considering taking out a car loan, so they can trade in their current motor for a more fuel-efficient model, may be impressed by the latest offering from smart.

People considering taking out a car loan, so they can trade in their current motor for a more fuel-efficient model, may be impressed by the latest offering from smart.

This month sees the manufacturer introduce micro hybrid drive technology to its 61 hp and 71 hp versions of the fortwo.

A system which automatically stops and restarts in traffic, the carmaker claimed the feature will help to provide significant savings in terms of fuel and emissions.

According to smart, the new models will cut petrol use by 24 per cent and lower CO2 emissions to 103 grams per kilometre.

If a driver decides they would prefer not to use the technology, it can be deactivated by the flick of a switch on the central console.

The system will then reactivate the next time the car is started up.

Prices for the model start at £7,060 on the road.

Earlier this year a smart fortwo claimed victory in the Cannonball Run.
