Smart introduces ForTwo ICE Edition
30 June 2010 | The special edition model, available in striking deep black with black carbon fibre finish tridion safety cell, focusses on in-car entertainment with the very latest Pioneer audio and navigation technology. Only 200 Smart ForTwo ICE edition models will be available for purchase in the UK. There will be 140 micro hybrid drive petrol versions priced from £10,495 on-the-road as well as 60 diesels, which will cost £11,245.
Smart and Pioneer collaborated to ensure the AVIC-F920BT Navgate package (incorporating a two-way speaker system and active subwoofer) could be seamlessly custom-fitted into the soundproofed spaces occupied by the factory-supplied audio equipment.
In addition to its hands-free Bluetooth capability, the ICE edition's Navgate unit is streets ahead when it comes to navigation, issuing pre-warnings about traffic jams and accidents as well as highlighting more than six million points of interest in 44 countries, such as cash machines or petrol stations.
Owners can use the system's ECO Graph package to analyse their driving performance too. It reveals how efficiently and economically they are driving by displaying the Smart's fuel usage as well as its CO2 emissions. Its black exterior is complemented by 15-inch Brabus Monoblock VII alloy wheels and panoramic roof. The Smart's interior features black leather heated seats, leather optic upper dashboard and 3-spoke leather sports steering wheel with steering wheel gear shift amongst its luxury appointments. Its extensive specification also includes a lockable glove compartment, air conditioning, electric windows and dashboard-mounted clock and rev counter.
