ofcourse i knwo the len is diff, I could make that out even with photos but i meant its meant to tackle the same kind of market..its just that mini has a sportier feel to it..but i think they are meant for the same purpose..i really dont think they are completely different segments..i dont know but if i am buying a smart(god forbid) i am going to be considering the mini as well(and thats the one i would pick)

so thats all i am saying..with those respects..they target the same buyer...

For me , its neither the mini nor the smart
call me the typical Indian who always thinks abt VFM.

I can get a much better car with better comfort, looks , speed , etc at the same price.

both cars are good. if givin a choice and had the money heck i'd buy both . but then again i wud not think VFM when u have tons of money and passion for cars. dont think anyone will mind then eh. dont say VFM counts but then once u drive such a thing and then get that attention. heck even if you have a E class ppl will check out the mini or smart first.

im not sure but i think i see the same car near jaslok hospital or near heerapanna

hey x ure pics are quite cool

well the car is expensive , not a car to buy but should be good fun to rent out
what say
in switzerland there are some swiss hotels with a smart room where the person occupying the room has a smart car to drive around...
reently when i went there, interlaken , swiss inn, the owner took me for a small drive in the car ...
not too fond of the dash but the car looks HOT

Weird how Brabus this time around didn't replace the manufacturer's symbol with a 'B'.

Hey I didnt know there was a thread on the Smartie!!! Good to see someone's brought it down to India...18 lakhs for this one? OUCH!

The one in the pics here is not a Brabus, though - the tail lamps are a dead giveaway that its either a 'Pulse' or 'Passion' street car. Its probably got the Brabus kit (which is available separately).

It retails for the equivalent of Rs.10 lakhs here, but I bought mine from the Sheikh's garage where they were selling this lovely Brabus convertible with only 5,400 kms on the ODO. Got it for < 3 lakhs...
