Smart are bringing out a roadster and coupé later this year. By the time it’s out, my Mini Cooper will be two years old, and I had wondered about doing the trade-in thing – the Mini is holding its value astonishingly well at the moment, so it might make no less sense than any other plan.
But today, I discover that the smart Roadster will cost £13,495, the Coupé £14,495. Add in a few options, and… but… that’s more than a Cooper S would be.
Bang goes that plan, then.
