Smart models with an internal combustion engine are in full swing. The popular brand of urban vehicles has decided to become a fully electric company. A change that is going around the corner. It will be on May 31, 2019 that will be placed the end point in the production of the gasoline models that the company continues to sell today.

To bid farewell in high style of this type of mechanics, the German mark presented the special edition Urbanshadow Edition. This ‘run-out’ series will be available for the three body versions that make up the line and is characterized by offering a sporty and at the same time differentiated image, with a complete equipment as standard. It is already available from the brand’s European dealers.

It was April 2018 that Smart officially announced that it would stop marketing the petrol versions of its models to produce and sell only electric cars. Although it has been quite a while since Smart began its particular transition to electric mobility, it was a real surprise to know that this trip would culminate in such a short time.

Those interested in purchasing a copy of this special edition will be able to choose between the Smart ForTwo, Smart ForTwo Cabrio and Smart ForFour. For the creation of the version Urbanshadow Edition was taken as a starting point Passion line, in which were added different elements such as the comfort package and sports skirts signed by Brabus.

It also has antinebline headlights integrated in the front skirt. Both the alloy wheels as well as the tridion safety cell and the external rearview mirror housings feature a black tone finish. Among the standard equipment there are LED lights for daytime running, antinebline lights, alloy wheels, Bluetooth, USB connection, cruise control and speed limiter, electric windows and central locking with remote control.

The Urbanshadow Edition special edition is already on sale at the brand’s European dealers. It has a starting price of around 13,000 euros, which corresponds to the ForTwo Coupe. With this finish Smart highlights that customers of the latest gasoline models will benefit from a discount applied on the included equipment of 39%.


Smart will also be part of the EQ electric car family that was started by Mercedes-Benz under the auspices of Daimler. In fact, they will be the first EQ models to go on sale. And to celebrate this occasion the German brand decided to introduce a special edition called Nightsky Edition. It will be available for Smart’s three electric cars, which will now adopt the EQ acronym in their names.

The new Smart EQ ForTwo, EQ ForTwo Cabrio and EQ ForFour show a more stylish, urban and stylized image thanks to the differentiating details provided by the Nightsky special edition. Regardless of the vehicle chosen, they all have a common denominator. They feature a body painted in black that combines very interestingly with the details in blue. A characteristic feature of EQ models.

The body panels, the Tridion safety cell and the front grille are black in color. In addition, the ForTwo Cabrio also has a black hood. As standard, the three models are equipped with the Brabus Style package for the exterior, which features a front spoiler, new side skirts and a new rear aerofoil. All in shiny black.

The exterior rear-view carcasses were painted Pacific Blue and the two urban two-seaters fit 16-inch Brabus Monoblock VIII alloy wheels. In the passenger compartment the two-tone environment is maintained. In addition, different elements such as lever shifter and handbrake levers, door sill plates and sport pedals come from Brabus specialists. The standard equipment is another of the most relevant features of this special edition, since it has the confort package with object holder, in addition to the LED & sensor package.

Leaving aside the new Smart EQ ForTwo Edition Nighsky, if we take a look at the four-seat model, it draws attention to its image that combines black as the main color with the same blue details mentioned earlier. In addition, it shares some traits with the Smart ForFour Crosstown, which gives the Smart electric car an air type SUV. It also has a complete equipment, where the Sleek Style package stands out.

Over the next few days the new Smart EQ ForTwo, ForTwo Cabrio and ForFourNightsky Edition will be on display at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show where they can be seen live. Its marketing will start from the second half of this year.


The Paris Motor Show 2018 is already around the corner and manufacturers are quick to present the news that will be leading to the French automobile event that will happen from next October 4.

The German manufacturer celebrates its twentieth anniversary and for that occasion prepared this new conceptual work that will be presented in the Paris hall. It is a prototype that pays homage to two other roadsters that Smart presented as prototypes earlier, the Crossblade of the year 2001 and the Forspeed exhibited in 2011 at the Geneva Motor Show.

The Smart Forease Concept is a two-seat roadster based on the Fortwo Cabrio, which stands out for its open body, its small windshield, in addition to new format bumpers, specific design protection bars, new grille, new headlights main and new 3D drawing taillights.

The interior of this prototype has also been subject to revision, as it has a unique design steering wheel, upholstery in green color, and specific trims for this version, including air vents of the air conditioner with hive screen, aluminum pedals, etc.

The manufacturer has not provided technical details about this new conceptual work, but it is understood that like the convertible version of the Fortwo on which it is based, the car is powered by a 60 kW (80 hp) electric motor and a maximum torque of 160 Nm, enough to reach a top speed of 130 km / h and accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 11.8 seconds.

To know more details of this new conceptual work of Smart will have to await its official presentation that will happen next week in the city of Paris. At the moment it is not known if this prototype will become a model of production, just as timely occurred with the Crossblade presented in 2001, which eventually reached the market in a limited series of 2,000 copies.


Brabus is almost always synonymous with powerful and radical creations based on Mercedes-Benz models. But the German coach also modifies the Smart line, creating versions in partnership with the brand and others of their full responsibility.

Named Brabus 125R, this pocket rocket is based on the Smart ForTwo Cabrio and has been transformed into an authentic ‘urban rocket’. The 898 cc turbocharged three-cylinder engine started to generate 125 horsepower and 200 Nm of maximum torque. The Brabus usually offers much more impressive numbers, but it should be remembered that from the factory this model produces 72 hp and 91 Nm.

This significant increase in power, due to a new air filter, new intercooler, new modified ECU and a new exhaust system, allows the Brabus 125R to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 9.2 seconds and reach 175 km / h, an electronic limit defined by Brabus itself.

In addition to this increase in power, the German trainer equipped the Smart with an aerodynamic kit and a set of 16 (front) wheels and 17 (behind) inches that give it a more aggressive and more sporty image.

But the exterior looks complete with a new sports suspension that leaves the 125R about 30 mm closer to the ground and with a huge rear diffuser that accommodates a triple central exhaust outlet that makes this Brabus not go unnoticed.

Brabus has already confirmed that it will only produce 125 copies of the 125R, and in Germany each copy has a price of 39,900 euros.


The new Smart Forease Concept is not the only novelty that the German brand has led to the Paris Motor Show 2018. Taking advantage of its presence in this relevant automobile event and the celebration of its 20th anniversary this year, Smart also decided to introduce an interesting new special limited edition of its small and attractive two-seat urban car. This is the new Smart ForTwo Edition PureBlack.

The exterior of the new Smart ForTwo Edition PureBlack, as its name implies, is a ‘black sea’ where the matte black finishes contrast in a peculiar manner with various details in bright black and red. It is also important to note the finish presented on the grill and the beautiful 16-inch alloy wheels along with the emblem of this special series.

Regarding the interior of the Smart ForTwo Edition PureBlack, a passenger compartment appears where black leather upholstery with contrasting red stitching helps create a more welcoming environment. The sports-style steering wheel is also upholstered in leather. Nor can we ignore the velvet carpets and the complete equipment used by this edition of the Smart ForTwo.

Among the equipment there are the Comfort, Stowage Space and LED & Sensor packages. The Cool & Media package will also be available at the factory. Thanks to this the Smart ForTwo Edition PureBlack will feature heated seats, automatic climate control and the panoramic roof with sun protection, among many other things.

Regarding the mechanical part, breaking a little with the line followed by Smart to this day, this new special limited edition will be offered with internal combustion engines, as well as in a fully electric version. In the first case it will have a gasoline engine of 0.9 liters with 90 hp and 135 Nm, or a block of 1.0 liter with 71 hp and 91 Nm. In relation to the pure electric version, it is propelled by an engine of 82 hp and 160 Nm.

The commercialization of the new Smart ForTwo Edition PureBlack will begin in a few months in Europe and deliveries will begin in the first half of 2019. As you approach your release date Smart will provide the rest of the details about this limited special edition. That is, your complete serial equipment, as well as all your prices.


In just a few days the 2018 Detroit Motor Show will open its doors. The first major auto event of the year will bring together a significant number of top-level manufacturers and brands. One of them that will be at the event is Smart, which will take advantage of the American salon to celebrate its 10th anniversary in the United States.

A decade ago Smart officially landed on the American market, and the best way to celebrate that date is with a special edition of one of its most relevant models: the Smart ForTwo Electric Drive. In the image we can see the aspect that will have this special edition ’10th Anniversary Edition’ of ForTwo ED.

The small urban electric appears with an exterior where undoubtedly highlights the new work of painting. The ‘Sapphire Blue’ metallic color is also used in the safety cell and other relevant elements such as the front grille. The result is quite interesting, as few external details continue to have a black finish to create some contrast.

In addition to painting, the Smart ForTwo ED 10th Anniversary Edition offers two options of 16-inch Monoblock VII alloy wheels, signed by Brabus and in Gray Anthracite. It has also been equipped with some elements of the German preparer, such as the rugs and the lever of the shift lever, which give a sporty touch to the whole of the vehicle.

Mechanically there is no change, so it continues to be propelled by an electric motor of 60 kW (82 hp) and 160 Nm, powered by a 17.6 kWh battery that gives it a range of 160 kilometers (NEDC cycle). The small German electric model is capable of reaching a top speed of 130 km / h.

Following its launch at the 2018 Detroit Motor Show, this special edition will be available on the American Smart ForTwo ED line. It will add up to $ 1,950 over the basic model price and will go on sale for a limited period of time.

Toyota’s overbearing name is also called a unique design


Speaking of Toyota overbearing, many people are very familiar, because the local tyrants at the time liked the car very much, but in recent years, the name seems to be less, this is why, the original Toyota overbearing is changed. The name is gone, but only the Chinese transliteration has been changed. The original English name has not changed. So what is the name of Toyota Overbearing? It is the Prado that we have heard recently.


First, the design is unique


What is the name of Toyota Overbearing? Why changed to Prado? I believe many of my friends know it. If you don’t know, you can also look at the difference between Toyota Prado and Overbearing . Let’s take a look at the appearance of this model. The front face of the 2018 imported overbearing 2700 looks fierce. The newly designed straight waterfall front grille makes the new Prado look rougher than the previous model, and the new bumper makes the front face fuller. The unique multi-angle reflective headlights are perfectly matched with the natural and simple front grille. The wide rear window and round taillights make the new Overbearing 2700 even more glamorous. The overall body has a good layering, which fully reflects the wildness of this large SUV.


Second, the interior is comfortable and intimate


The improvements in the Toyota Overbearing 2700 interior layout are also subtle, very comfortable and intimate, mainly for some optimization of the interior materials and protection buy mercedes car covers. The new Toyota overbearing center console intentionally designs the style of the body. The ladder layout separates the multimedia and air-conditioning control areas in a harmonious manner, which is not only clear at a glance but also easy for the owner to master. The overbearing 2700 interior is more stylish, and the steering wheel and dashboard shape are redesigned to be more stylish and technological than the current model. Compared with the 18-barreled double-barreled instrument panel, the instrument panel of the new model has a smaller movement, but it looks more compact.


Third, pay more attention to security configuration



The Prado 2700 is the king of off-road and has an absolutely reliable off-road performance. Toyota Overbearing 2700 pays more attention to vehicle active safety design and configuration while exerting more power and performance of off-road dynamics. The system has a Tossen central differential that distributes torque between 40 and 60 between the front and rear axles. If slippage occurs, the torque can be distributed up to a maximum of 29:71. The Toyota Overbearing 2700 2.7 four-cylinder engine has a high fuel economy and is very sensational when shifting gears, which greatly satisfies the pleasure of driving.The above is some of the answers to the Toyota overbearing configuration. When the suv model first entered the country, it was not unreasonable to be liked by the local tyrants. It is indeed as domineering as the name. From appearance to configuration, it belongs to the top.Years ago, Japan’s Toyota Overbearing was mixed in the domestic market. Although the price is relatively high, but the configuration is also matched with the price, and there is no shortage of local tyrants in the country, so such a high-quality suv is also very marketable. of. Today, Prado is no matter how many years ago it was overbearing. So where is the difference between Prado and Overbearing?


First, some people think that it is not a model


The appearance of the car, the difference is not very big, the overbearing is more rough, Prado is more delicate and full of vitality. Comfort. Prado is more comfortable and has a stronger driving feel. Driving feeling. The overbearing driving operation feels very good and can kill Prado. Power. The overbearing car is in its name, full of power, but the fuel consumption is high. However, this price does not have to consider fuel consumption. Off-road. Both cars are similar and have excellent off-road performance. Bloody.


Second, in fact, this is a model


In fact, Toyota overbearing and Toyota Prado are the same model, but the name is not the same. In fact, Prado is the real name of this SUV, which is the PRADO we often hear. It’s just that many years ago Toyota didn’t have to overdo it, and it switched to Prado. I originally thought that many friends also know.


Third, many models have multiple names


Toyota is overbearing and Toyota Prado, there is no difference, they are the same, but later changed their name, previously called hegemony, and later changed to Prado. It was originally the same kind of car, but the name was different. Just like Lexus and Lexus, Corolla and Corolla.Look at the above article is not the answer to the difference between Prado and hegemony. In fact, a model does not have to be too entangled name, easy to use, although it has been changed from overbearing to Prado, but still deep High-end luxury suv that is loved by local tyrants.Nowadays, the suv market is very popular. This is the most popular model in the domestic market. Therefore, major manufacturers also attach great importance to this part, so the various types of suv models are very numerous, and Toyota  As a small suv of Toyota, Ze has attracted a lot of attention before the launch, so how about sales of Toyota Zeze, let’s take a look.


First, Toyota Yuze sales are generally


Regarding the sales of Toyota Takizawa, the car sold better in Japan, but after it came to China, it only sold 2,538 units. If it is in Japan, it is OK, but in the Chinese market, Such results may not even be as good as domestic cars. Then Guangzhou Automobile Toyota also announced the sales volume in the first month. In the first month, it sold 3,756 quantities, which is better than FAW’s Takizawa, but this still Not a good grade…


Second, Toyota ordinary highlighting


If the domestic market is not selling well, it is nothing more than the fact that the value of the car cannot attract the car buyers. After all, the design of the car in the face value determines the level of sales, although the front face of Zhai Ze still has a design existence, but this The design is quite unique to the domestic people. It is also a type that young people like, because this car is different from other cars. When driving this car on the street, the attention is still not It will be low, and this is also the positioning of this Takizawa, but the halogen tube is used in the headlights, which is relatively common now, and does not surprise the car buyers.

Third, Toyota’s price has affected sales

In terms of power, this car uses a 2.0T engine. The engine parameters are also excellent in the same level. It is also very good in terms of smoothness. The fuel economy is also a superior level. The fuel consumption of 5.7 is 100 kilometers. . In fact, no matter how good the power of Zhangze, the personality of the appearance, as long as it involves the issue of high prices, everything is white talk, the price of 149,800 to 175,800 is also for many people to choose to give up. C-HR is only 5,000 cheaper than Takizawa, and the result is more than a thousand more than it. I think the results explain everything. The above gives you an introduction of the sales situation of Toyota Tsuruhawa. It can be found that the sales volume of the Toyota Zeze is quite general. Although it is a good quality model, because Toyota’s appearance is not bright, The price competitiveness is also insufficient, which naturally leads to the decline in the competitiveness of Toyota Minze, and the sales volume is not high. In recent years, the momentum of SUVs is fierce. Almost every manufacturer has launched some SUVs. What are the Toyota SUVs? Although we see a lot of Toyota cars in the market, but actually seeing Toyota suv is not much, mainly Toyota SUV positioned higher, and some imported cars only, but several sales in the domestic or Very impressive and everyone is familiar.


I. Highlander


When it comes to Toyota’s suv, the first thing that comes to mind is Highlander. Since its launch, sales have been very good, and the style has not fallen behind. The most important thing is to have enough space to make a lot of praise. After all, the length It reaches 4855mm and the wheelbase is close to 2800mm. However, due to the explosion, some dealers have unreasonably increased the price, which is also incapable of spitting.


Second, Prado (overbearing)


Prado is a branch of Rand Cool Road in 1990, and was introduced to the country. It was originally named after hegemony and later changed to Prado. Just like its name, it gives a very overbearing feeling from the appearance, but it has a good experience in comfort, the operating lever is very good, and in terms of power, it is very overbearing, full of power, but high fuel consumption. After all, it is a four-wheel drive, but I am afraid that this price will no longer consider what fuel consumption.


Third, RAV4


As the “originator of the urban SUV”, RAV4 has been a leader in sales since its launch, but it is fierce, but it can balance the comfort of the road and the urban sports. It has become a “four-wheel drive leisure sports car” and has continued Toyota. The spacious space gives a very good driving experience, and the most important thing is that its pricing is not high.



The characteristics of Zhangze IZOA are very clear, the appearance is very cool, the interior has fun, and the driving has surprises. It can be said that it is more meticulous in all aspects, so that the visible and invisible are all high quality and also respond. FAW Toyota’s brand new slogan “To the very best”, it represents a life attitude that is not limited by life, dare to think, dare to do, dare to fight, and dare to be free, so it is a special for young people. SUV.


V. Land Cruiser


Rand Cool Road Ze has a domineering name in China: Land Cruiser. You can feel its off-road performance under this name. In addition, it has the characteristics of large space, comfortable and durable. As for the decades of its birth, it has a good reputation in the industry. Many people want to know the relationship between it and Prado. In contrast, you can find that Prado is just a reduced version of Rand Cool Road, and of course the design is not the same. FJ Cool Road Ze is the deformation car of the 8th generation Land Cruiser in 2007. It was awarded the “coolest design model” and “Golden Car Award Editor’s Choice Award” just after its launch, and immediately won the “10th” in 2008. The awards such as the best SUV four-wheel drive “the most popular off-road vehicle” show how popular it is. Although there is a genuine Rand Cool Road Ze, there is a reduced version of the overbearing, but in the middle of it, it still blooms its own light. From the appearance, you can feel the powerful gas field of Toyota Sequoia, the length of 5.2 meters, the wheelbase of 3 meters, and the powerful front shape make it full of muscle. Sequoia is responsible for assisting the North American market. The whole car is equipped with a 5.7L V8 naturally aspirated engine, with a maximum horsepower of 386 horsepower and a maximum torque of 544 Nm. All aspects are very strong, but you can only appreciate it. Hard to see.
