Grandstyle Edition Adds Extra Appeal to smart

April 14, 2014: Drivers of the iconic smart fortwo can enjoy greater luxury, convenience, style and value with the launch of the new grandstyle edition.

Based on the well-appointed passion line, the grandstyle edition features an even more impressive specification.

But while the striking smart is big on equipment levels and eye-catching exclusivity, it can be enjoyed for surprisingly little. The grandstyle edition is available with a 0% interest finance package that puts drivers in the 71 bhp mhd coupé for only £99 per month, or in the 84 bhp version for just £109/m.

There’s certainly no chance of missing the grandstyle edition. Cool and sophisticated, the new model is distinguished by distinctive gleaming black 15” three-double-spoke alloy wheels, headlamps with titanium-coloured surrounds and subtle ‘grandstyle’ logos in the door mirror triangles. LED daytime running lights heighten safety as well as looks, while the contemporary appearance is completed with a choice of five exterior and tridion colours.

Its inside is equally attractive. Black Artico upholstery provides a classy, upmarket ambience and the feel of a leather-trimmed two-spoke steering wheel adds even more compact opulence. There’s also a handy cup holder and if customers desire even more comfort, they can specify the optional new Comfort Package that adds heated seats and electrically-adjustable and heated door mirrors.

The standard Audio system Navigation Highline with its 6.5 inch touch screen ensures grandstyle edition drivers reach their destination with ease, and air conditioning makes every journey as chilled or as heated as the driver desires.

Available as a coupé with a panoramic roof, or cabrio with a fully automatic soft top, the grandstyle edition offers a choice of 71 bhp mhd or 84 bhp turbocharged petrol engines. Both combine strong, nippy performance with the smart’s renowned efficiency.

The smart grandstyle edition is priced from £10,330 OTR.

“smart has always been small and stylish but the grandstyle edition moves it up a level,” said Gary Savage, Chief Executive Officer Mercedes-Benz UK Limited.

“Everything about the grandstyle edition is designed to enhance driver enjoyment, and it’s a car that will create a real stir in its sector.”
