A Smart Quiz

on Wed Aug 22, 2018 10:52 am
Right then, a simple question.

Q. Other than plastic panels, what do the Avantime and Smart Roadster have in common?



- Ohh, and you can't just say they're both sh1t!!

They are both rear engin.........nope.

Something in my brain is telling me that both the Avantime and the Smart were built in the Matra factory? But im not sure? Im not sure if thats right and i havent googled it to check. I will let you advise me.

I know the Avantime was built there but i dunno about the Smart.

I think the Renault Avantime had a lot of plastic parts and I'm guessing the Smart Roadster is the same.

So they are; but it's not the answer I'm looking for!!

Interesting the article goes on about the Roadster gearbox - but it's the same one as in the ForTwo, which has sold very nicely over the years?!?!?!?

Sold very nicely, yes, but it's not a good gearbox! I wont be swayed on this! It's just not! It's too slow and jerky. Yes, one can modify their driving style...but one can tell it's the weak link in the chain.

Still, i do like them (Smart) as they have been doing their own thing really.

It's just a very very slight lift off on the throttle on up change. Totally gets rid of jerks!

But, yes - a nice manual g/box would have been better!

in 1999 they were both in Paris.


Reminds me of the poem, one could eat no fat the other could eat no lean and together they licked the platter clean.

Just about there!


Both were shown as concept cars in the 1999 Paris roadshow, and made it into production with comparatively little change.

There’s more room in an Avantime for trifle than the Smart

Yeah one is fat (and can swallow a trifle) and one is thin and Hugh has a split personality as he's owning both...
