Smart Forstars concept

  1 of 11 | Next  | Last

The two-seat Forstars previews the exterior styling set for the next generation of Smart models. Those include the third-generation Fortwo and second-generation Forfour, both of which are being developed and will be produced in co-operation with Renault. The French automaker will get its own uniquely bodied versions of the new cars. The Forstars concept uses the same rear-engine/rear-wheel-drive mechanical package as the for-us pickup concept shown at the Detroit show in January. The Forstars also hints at what Smart describes as a new sport-utility coupe model that is under consideration as an affordable rival to the likes of the upcoming Volkswagen CrossUp.
