Smart ForTwo and ForFour colours guide and prices

May 23, 2016 by

The two-seater Smart ForTwo and five-door ForFour are two of the most distinctive city cars on sale. Cute, well made and enjoyable to drive, their sense of fun is reflected in the colour choices for both cars. We list all the colour options and prices to help you pick the one that suits you best.

Put either the Smart ForTwo or the Smart ForFour in our car configurator to see the deals carwow could help you get. Check out our car paint types guide to see the difference between solid, metallic and special finishes.

Solid paint finishes

Black – £0

Glossy black shades are notoriously difficult to keep looking their best because dirt shows up within metres of leaving the car wash. The difficulty is worth putting up with, however, because black is one of the easiest shades to sell to the used market.

White – £0

The only shade more difficult to keep looking its best than black, is white. Almost any dirt will spoil the pristine look, so budget for plenty of car wash visits. Like black, if you keep it clean, it’ll sell easily on the used market.

Red – £0

Continuing the straightforward naming theme is the third solid finish. Red is only available with the smaller ForTwo. Smaller cars tend to suit brighter shades so it’s unlikely used buyers will be put off by this bold hue.

Metallic paint finishes

Black-to-Yellow – £295

This bright finish is used by Smart in many of its press images, and it’ll be certain to stand out for the right reasons when the time comes to sell. It’s a lighter shade, however, so you might have to frequent your local car wash more than owners of darker cars.

Cool Silver – £295

Possibly the most conventional colour option for the Smart, Cool Silver is unlikely to offend any future buyers, so it’ll be easy to sell on. Silver shows up dirt pretty quickly, however, so make sure you keep it clean to get the best from it.

Hazel Brown – £295

Brown is the obvious choice for those who don’t fancy regular car wash visits – it’ll obscure road grime for a fair while. It’s a handsome colour but might not be one of the more popular choices meaning it might be marginally harder to sell to the used market.

Lava Orange – £295

A surefire way to never lose a car in a busy car park is to paint it bright orange. It’s a love-it-or-hate-it look so it might be marginally harder to sell on compared to more conventional colours. Like many lighter hues, regular cleaning will be needed to keep it looking good.

Midnight Blue – £295

Dark blue cars are unlikely to offend used buyers either, so should be easy to sell on. As a darker colour, it’ll hide dirt for longer than a lighter option, meaning you might not have to clean it as frequently.

Cadmium Red – £295

Cadmium Red is only available with the ForFour and should be relatively popular come trade-in time. It’ll do a better job of concealing the dirt than white or silver, but won’t hide it for a long as grey or brown.

Matt finishes

Moon White – £395

A sheenless matt finish means Moon White won’t appear as grubby as other bright shades, but it’ll still need plenty of attention to keep it at its best. Matt cars are still reasonably rare, so it’s worth paying the £395 asking price for this option.

Titania Grey – £395

A dark, matt paint, meanwhile, will be one of the best choices imaginable for those who tend not to fret over the need to keep a car clean. Only upon the closest scrutiny will it be obvious that it’s hiding weeks of grime.

Other colour options

Tridion safety cell

The contrasting door sills, door pillars and roof – called a Tridion safety cell by Smart – is offered in a variety of shades. Black is a no-cost option, while Cool Silver, White, Jupiter Red, Lava Orange (shown above with Moon White) and Cadmium Red cost £200 (or £0 on top spec Proxy models). Graphite Grey meanwhile, costs £250.

Cabrio roof

Cabrio models are offered with one of two fabric roof choices. A black roof is standard, while a red top is a £115 option.
