2008 is here! Among other things, this year marks the first time Smart Cars are available in the United States.
The cars get terrific gas mileage, and starting at $12,000, they're much more affordable than new hybrids. But they are tiny -- two feet shorter than a Mini Cooper. Smart Cars can park "nose-in" in spaces where other cars must parallel-park.
They certainly look fun to drive, and they're sure eco-friendly. But they're probably going to have pretty limited appeal. It sounds like it would be great for city driving or running light errands around the 'burbs. But driving a Smart Car on the Interstate sounds like no fun at all.
