The new smart #3

The new smart #3 coupé SUV is coming next year

The new smart #3 carries over a few design cues from the smaller smart #1, however it is larger, sportier and aerodynamic.

Up front it has a similar headlight design with triangular LEDs and a sleek-looking light strip across the bonnet. Three trim levels of the #3 will be offered in Europe from launch, although specifications for the UK market are yet to be revealed. Starting off the range is the Pro+ then the Premium, the limited edition ‘25th Anniversary Edition’ and then the top-level BRABUS. The 25th Anniversary Edition features a panoramic galaxy roof and leather seats with an integrated headrest along with bespoke badging. The BRABUS gets 20-inch wheels and sporty pedals but all models get a 12.3-inch touchscreen as the centrepiece of the dashboard and a 9.2-inch HD instrument cluster and a 10-inch head-up display.

The smart #3 power ranges from 272bhp to 428bhp for the BRABUS #3. The BRABUS version accelerates from 0 to 62mph in 3.7 seconds but the Pro+ with less power still manages the same sprint in 5.8 seconds. Maximum range of the #3 stands at 283 miles.

Following on from its European debut, the smart #3 is set to go on sale in early 2024. Until then, the smaller Smart #1 is available to order. Get in touch with us at Sandown smart to book a test drive!
