I think it came out in 2005 as MY2006, while the Smart Fortwo started selling in 2004. I personally don't mind the B, it's not pretty but it's not ugly in my opinion, got one as a loaner a couple of times and they're ok. The first-gen Smart Fortwo with the 40hp diesel was absolute garbage though, worst...transmission...ever... I have yet to try the new body with the 3-cylinder Mistubishi gas engine but they're supposed to be much better.
