The smart fortwo gets a nip and tuck for 2012

The smart fortwo has been given a small cosmetic facelift for 2012, and will debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.

The perpetual loss-maker for Mercedes that is the smart car (the other being Maybach, which is now being left to wither on the vine) still continues, and Mercedes are planning a replacement, previewed by the recent smart forvision concept which heralds the new smart fortwo which will share its platform with the next Renault Twingo.

But to freshen the current smart fortwo until the all new smart fortwo arrives, Mercedes has rolled out a few cosmetic tweaks for the current smart fortwo for 2012, but haven’t bothered to tweak either the chassis or engines.

The smart fortwo gets the same updates that the recently revealed 2012 smart fortwo ED, which means a new front grill with logo, new spoilers, butch sills and a set of tweaked LED running lights.

On the inside the smart fortwo gets upgraded materials (leather and cloth) as well as a leather dash if you’re prepared to pay even more for your fortwo than the silly list price. Trim levels are Pulse, Passion and Brabus.

The 2012 smart fortwo will debut at Geneva in March and is ready to order now with first cars in dealers in April.
