Smart has great news for those living in urban areas such as Los Angeles, San Diego, and Santa Barbara.

Built for the Big Town

The smart fortwo was specifically designed for a city environment.

The new collection of smart fortwo cars has something for everyone including both gas and electric models, dynamic manual transmissions, and spunky new engines.

Increased Safety Technology

As a member of the Mercedes-Benz family, smart is dedicated to providing the highest level of safety technology. Many new safety and design advancements have been made to the smart car, and drivers are invited to experience these for themselves as the new models are released. For example, the new models feature an updated tridion safety cell that provides a higher proportion of ultra-high strength steel for added protection. Designed by the Mercedes-Benz engineering team, the updates offer the highest safety standards to date.

Exciting Power

The new smart cars offer an even more dynamic driving experience thanks to the available five-speed manual transmission and optional six-speed dual clutch twinamic transmission.

Santa Barbara Auto Group Highlights smart Safety Innovations

2016-01-29T02:28:51+00:00July 22nd, 2013|smart|

Santa Barbara drivers are learning how innovative smart safety technology is expertly engineered to provide protection.  Every smart car is crammed with engineering designed by forward thinking safety pioneers at Mercedes-Benz.  Each model is built to meet the strongest industry standards and beyond to keep drivers and their passengers safe in the event of an accident or emergency.  If you have ever questioned the safety of these innovative little cares, we invite Santa Barbara drivers to meet the awesome features that come standard with every smart car. SBAlogo5

The Patented Tridon Safety Cell:

This design element is inspired by racecar roll cages.  The reinforced high-strength steel tridion safety cell is engineered to be a barrier between you and pretty much anything else you may encounter on the road.  It is built to evenly distribute crash energy so you can have peace of mind on the go.

Crash Management System: 

Seat belt tensioners, belt force limiters, and a collapsible steering column make for a completely protective car that’s thought of everything.  Speaking of thinking, smart makes decisions in the event of a crash or collision by automatically shutting off the engine, turning on the hazards lights, and unlocking doors to increase vehicle accessibility.

ESP:  No, the smart car does not have mind reading capabilities, but it does feature an Electronic Stability Program which means you stay steady, even if the road isn’t so friendly.  It will recognize if you are in danger of swerving on the road before you do and reacts automatically to make preventative adjustments.  It throttles the engine and applies the brakes to the wheels to keep you in control especially in the most unstable conditions.

Full-Size Airbags:  Mercedes-Benz invented the airbag back in 1981.  Building on 30 years of airbag innovation, they have equipped smart with 8 full-size airbags (6 in the cabriolet).  Top-to-bottom, side-to-side, and up-and-down, everyone inside a smart car enjoys all-around safety and protection.

ABS: The road is full of unexpected hazards.  Things can pop up out of nowhere especially while you are driving.  So, smart’s Anti-Lock Braking System prevents the wheels from locking during braking.  This allows you to steer safely and stay in control and out of harm’s way.

Learn more about innovative safety features from smart at smart center Santa Barbara.  Call us, email, or stop by to schedule a test drive and experience the fun of driving a smart car for yourself!  Select from our complete line including the pure coupe, passion coupe, passion cabriolet, and electric drive.
