2013 Smart ForTwo Pure, Passion vs Cabriolet

By Staff Contributor.

2013 Smart Pure Coupe has an MSRP starting at $12,490 and gets a cool 38MPG highway. AutoComparison top features for the exterior of the Smart Pure Coupe include the solid roof and the 15” steel rims with the Smart wheel covers. The interior features that we found pretty exciting is the flat fold passenger seat that allows large gear to fit like surfboards and the knee-bolster airbags for safety. It comes with the Smart 48 month/50,000 mile warranty is pretty cool. Options we would get are the Smart radio USB and AUX inputs, retractable cargo cover to hide shopping bags, heated seats, fog lamps, electric power steering, AC and the anti-theft alarm system, which would add about an additional $2300.

2013 Smart Passion Coupe has an MSRP starting at just $14,890 not the Passion Coupe has an awesome panoramic roof vs. the solid in the Pure Coupe plus the alloy wheel, AC, one touch power window control, heated side mirrors, a cool sporty 3 spoke leather steering wheel and instead of steel it has 15” 12 spoke alloy wheels. AutoComparison would recommend that you include these option packages including comfort, style, cruise and the technology with navigation we didn’t really see a need to add the cruise control package as this little car is so fund to drive with the shift paddles. Additional options would up the price by about $2900.

2013 Smart Passion Cabriolet has an MSRP starting at only $17,890 to go totally topless and get a stunning tan. The convertible is so easy with remote roof release with rear glass window with defroster, storable side roof bars so anytime you want to put it down it’s simple, fast and fully automatic. It has the same 15” 12 spoke alloy wheels as the Passion Coupe or you can upgrade to the 15” 6 spoke alloy wheels with the wide all seasons tires that look really sharp adding only $250 to the price, or tack on the packages with about 2900 and the fog lamps for $110 and you’ll look smoking hot in the Passion Cabriolet.

AutoComparison team loved the Cabriolet but for the cost in difference to the other two models to get it equipped just right is a big difference in price $8410 more than the 2013 Smart Fortwo Pure Coupe base model. Get the Pure Coupe and put the windows down.
