Daimler Announced smart forfour’s ComebackClarissa August 29, 2012
A lot of smart fortwo owners gathered at the smart times event in Antwerp. In that occasion, these small car enthusiasts showcased their prized vehicles and mingled with other people of the same interest.
In the same event, Daimler announced that they are releasing the four door version of the smart car again, in year 2014.
If you can still remember, the smart forfour was made and launched before, between April 2004 and July 2006. But the numbers were not quite what they expected, so they stopped production. But Daimler, with their partner Renault-Nissan, deemed that it is now the time to introduce it to the market again. And it was made official when the smart big boss Dr.Annette Winkler mentioned in smart times, “… do not worry, by 2014 we will again have the 4-door available! ”

A lot of Smart forfour owners took part in the smart times festivities in antwerp too!
Yeas…a lot did arrive n take part, but apart from one fleeting glimpse of it in a video it was ingored and postively shunned like an ugly duckling.
And the 2014 model is not a comeback…it’s a completely new car. Based on the Renault Twingo….so it’ll be smaller than the previous model, so no worries about it competeing for the A-Class market like the original one was.
Such a shame no one asked existing owners for feedback, comments, ideas or anything in the choice or design, so as usual it will be a car designed for you without you having any say in it. A bit like the Model T…any colour you like, just so long as it’s black.
