From October 2008, the smart models will include micro hybrid drive (mhd) technology featuring a user-friendly start-stop system.
NEDC consumption is reduced by about eight per cent with city-traffic savings reaching as much as 20 per cent.
A closed diesel particulate filter will also be fitted to the smart fortwo cdi that can all but eradicate particulate emissions.
The smart mhd automatic start-stop technology has only been available in the 71 bhp model but now the 61 bhp petrol models will also be fitted with the function.
In addition, designers are making the car even more attractive and comfortable.
Inside, the upholstery and fabric elements have been re-designed and an enhanced LCD display appears on the instrument panel.
The fuel gauge has been moved to appear centrally at the bottom and a digital clock and an exterior temperature indicator also appear.
