They wouldn't. Their rigidity is probably nowhere near that of a ForTwo's.

I don't even like the ForTwo, or any of the Smart models, but the crash capabilities for a car of its size is remarkable.

No, they wouldn't. Period. They didnt have to meet as stringent a test as modern cars do.

You know, I'd say it's 50/50 lauhging with and at, though I don't mind either. The funny part is little kids - the car really excites them, around Christmas I saw a little girl bouncing up and down pointing while pulling her dad's sleeve, it was adorable.

I've said I'll sell mine when I snag another parking spot at my building, but I'd sort of miss it. Unless you live in a congested city, you can't imagine the freedom you get from driving something that you know you'll find parking for, no matter where you're going. So many of my neighbors dread using their cars to go anywhere because they know they'll have a hassle finding parking where they go and another hassle finding anoher spot when they get back; with the Smart, I just go.
