At last Smart due in North America

Mercedes-Benz are trailing the arrival of the Smart brand in North America at the end of 2004. The first Smart this side of the pond looks set to be the “Forfour” - a four-door, four-seat hatchback with all-wheel drive. The new Mitsubishi Colt will share major components. Mercedes are also contemplating selling the Smart two-seat coupe and roadster.
The question remains will the original Smart city-car make it across the Atlantic - will the modifications required to meet North American standards justify the cost and will consumers take to the Smart in sufficient numbers?
