not to mention its instant death if you get in a crash....at least you have a chance of surviving in a normal car.

BMW Yaris.



This is a cool concept though, and cheers to BMW teaming up with MBZ Smart. That is some cool stuff.

People in Austin, TX are already buying cars that are similar from other car manufactures. I see them every morning specially downtown. You might be surprised. I study the markets very closely and I honestly think we will see $5.85 - $6.00 a gallon gas by end of summer this year. Not kidding....

This is exactly what I am thinking

I have already seen 3 on the road. All blue also. The sad part is they are expensive for what you get and barely get even 30 mpg. There a MUCH better cars that are smaller for the money and offer much better gas mileage.

people will buy them.

Chances of car being totaled if hit by SUV 87:100

Chances you will die if hit by an SUV 93:100

this vehicle shouldn't come to America until the SUVs leave first (long after 2012)
