Smart Fortwo Coupé

Cool cars needn’t be gas-guzzling monsters custom-built by Italian engineers who live on racetracks. These days, “cool” can mean something else entirely—particularly if you’re small enough to fit inside a Mini Cooper with room to spare. So check out a Smart Car, the tiny, fuel-efficient two-seater that has been popular in Europe for years. With the price of gasoline ever volatile (and often rising), you’ll welcome the Smart’s 33 city and 41 highway mpg rating. Considering this model was originally named the City-Coupé, though, you might want to keep it off fast, busy highways.
