Transmission solutions by smart.

smart fortwo coupé

Geared for relaxation.

In typical stop & go city traffic gear shifting should be as comfortable as possible. Which is why the smart fortwo has a clutchless automated manual 5-speed transmission that takes the strain out of gear shifting.
With the softip manual gear-shifting function, you simply tap the gear lever forwards (+) to shift up a gear.

And backwards to shift down again (-). Thanks to the kick-down function you can automatically shift down one or two gears at any time by pressing the pedal to the floor. And if you fancy taking it easy, you can leave the gear-changing to the softouch automatic gear programme.
