New Season – New Car: The Smart ForFour Proxy*
Another season, another fashionable update! This time, I switched my beautiful summer brights for some cool blues this Autumn/Winter season.
I did love my gorgeous previous Smart – Buttercup, yup, that’s what I named my yellow car (more about her here) and it was hard letting go. Apparently Smart car owners compared to other car owners, tend to name their cars more – think we honestly fall in love with them so much and get attached. However, move over Buttercup cos here comes Zangief! And I make no apologies for my Street Fighter II based childhood references here…
It’s just stunning isn’t it? The car stands a mile out because of it’s gorgeous bright colours and style. It has an edge of urban cool.
I named it Zangief after the Street Fighter character as it’s beefy and strong and because of the Z in the licence plate. It’s an upgrade from my last one, which had it’s own awesome features but this Smart ForFour Proxy basically is faster and stronger. I don’t know much about cars, horsepower and all that. I just know it’s so smooth driving it around and it just kicks ass. I honestly feel proud when it pulls up next to bigger (and more boring) cars on the road because it’s an incredibly powerful car.
The good thing about the new Smart cars is you can truly pick one for your own personality and style. The previous one had lovely leather seats (heated!), and was bright and bubbly. This one is cool and sporty, with little touches like sport pedals and these gorgeous tyres including stunning black 16” alloy wheels.
Look how cute the sport pedals are! The rest of the interior is a dream too. Love the crisp colours and lines and the seats are ultra comfy. I’ve had a long drive to Sheffield already and didn’t feel at all achy, which I normally do after several hours in a car.
By the way, isn’t it exciting when you get a new car and you have almost zero milage on the screen. And is it just me but don’t the orange colours of the screen just look super stylish against the blue? Not that it’s a reason to get a car, but you know, it helps!
All the great features are here including an inbuilt sat-nav, paranoramic roofs and back doors that open 180 degrees, making it easy to pack anything in the back. Ahhh, it’s my little social butterfly…
Another epic thing about it is the space, I’d previously termed my Smartcar, a “cardis” – small on the outside, massive on the inside. You can fit so much in and the boot is plenty roomy, ideal for anything from day trips out to shopping expeditions.
All my friends who’ve had a lift in it so far have just oohed and ahhed. It’s spacious inside for passengers and is just incredibly good looking. It’s the Derek Zoolander of cars, but with brains.
The good thing for everyone though is the Smart ForFour is soooo affordable! It’s just a £149 deposit and £149 per month and seriously not much else! You have to sort out your own insurance but it’s got ZERO road tax, yup NO ROAD TAX, no MOT for 3 years, breakdown cover is included and there’s 3 years warranty, meaning you have complete peace of mind.
For any shopper or city chic individual, this is one thing you’ll want to pop into your shopping basket. If you want a FREE test drive, give the guys at Synter Mercedes Benz a shout via their website here. Go on, you know you want to.
Thanks for reading and ciao for now! x
