Upcoming smart ForTwo cabrio prototype crashes in Germany

Unsurprisingly, the first recorded crash of the upcoming smart ForTwo cabrio has already been confirmed by our colleagues from Carscoops, months before the planned debut of the new model.

The incident took place in Germany. Fortunately, the driver responsible for the mishap got away without a scratch. We’re not sure if the accident was provoked by another vehicle or not, but the tiny smart seems to have been alone in its quest outside the asphalt zone. Its bigger brother, the ForFour, promptly came to the rescue, pulling the prototype back from the bushes it has landed on.

It seems the new smart ForTwo Cabrio will not retain the fixed rear roof pillar, the electrically-operated canvas top now rolling all the way down and tuck away seamlessly into the baggage compartment.

Technical specifications are scarce at this moment, but it is safe to assume the engine line-up is set to feature the now familiar array of three cylinder petrol engine, in naturally aspirated (1.0-liter, 71 HP) or turbocharged form (0.9-liter, 90 HP).

The commercial debut of the upcoming drop-top has already been confirmed for December 2015 with the premiere of the all-new smart ForTwo Cabrio expected to take place this autumn, most likely at the Frankfurt Auto Show.
