The main point of a smart (compared to other subcompact cars) is that the
smart features two real seats instead of four too small seats. I am 6ft 9in
high and not very thin. I do fit in a smart, while a Ford Ka or a Fiat
Seicento are impossible for me. In Germany smart made a strange commercial
of two quite fat persons fitting in a smart and in no other car.
Even our former federal cancellor Mr. Kohl fits in a smart :-)

1. What interests me in addition is the question of
'pedestrian-friendliness' of US-cars in crashes. This is now an elements in
the EuroNCAP crash tests.
2. How much attention was paid to 'crash behaviour' in the these
down-sized cars, i.e. what measures taken to ensure passenger safety?
3. Are we comparing apples with apples?
