    The most obvious advantage of the Smart car is its manueverability on city streets. As you can see, two eight-foot Smart ForTwo cars take up almost the same space as one taxi. Gas mileage is estimated 46.3 miles per gallon in cities and 70.6 on the highway, according to DaimlerChrysler. And imagine the parking possibilities.

    One of the current models is the Smart ForTwo Passion Coupe. DaimlerChrysler describes Smart car owners this way: "Smart people are open minded, question the existing and live consciously."

    The three new models to be sold in the United States are expected to be announced near the end of 2007.
