CC Outtake: Smart Enough to Crawl Rocks

The Smart Car hasn’t been exactly popular here in the USA . Although I’ve never had the chance to drive one, their reputation is not good. I have heard they are slow, have clunky transmissions, and get unspectacular MPG for their small size. For some bizarre reason I still like them.

I took a walk the other day and spotted this one with off road tires and likely lifted suspension. While I’m no off-roader, the approach and decent angles of this little car suggest at least that won’t be a problem. With traffic and pot holes being as bad as they are in our cities lately, maybe this off-road little Smartie actually is the future of urban transportation.
