Daimler on Wednesday introduced a completely redesigned smart fortwo which will become available in the U.S. in the fall of 2015. A new four door model was also unveiled, with no plans to bring it to America yet.
Safety once again took center stage when designing the fortwo. Passengers will now be protected by more high-strength steel. Daimler even crash tested the fortwo against the Mercedes S class. The smart car performed well in frontal collisions with the larger Mercedes.
Plus, a new Crosswind Assist feature is meant to intervene with braking when the car detects it's being pushed by a strong gust of wind, helping the driver maintain control.
