Smart has come a long way since it initially entered the European market some time ago. After offering only one product at the start, it has already offered the Coupe, Roadster, and ForFour. It appears that its product lineup will receive another entry through an upcoming crossover vehicle.
The Renault-Nissan platform used on the Nissan Juke will be the foundation of the upcoming vehicle, autoexpress.co.uk revealed. The upcoming crossover will become a part of a three-model lineup, together with the Smart ForTwo and the Smart ForFour.
Smart collaborated with Renault to develop an upcoming model of the Smart ForTwo, which is based on an underpinning that will be used on the upcoming model of the Twingo. The Smart ForTwo is expected to be unveiled in 2014 while the crossover will reportedly be launched one year after.
The interior of the upcoming Smart vehicles will be redesigned to enhance its quality and give a more modern look. The detachable touch screen tablet control unit gives hints of this redesign. The control unit is expected to be positioned on the center console, which is similar to the location on the Volkswagen Up!.
