The unmistakable smart has its front and rear aprons, side skirts and filler cap finished in body-color as standard. There are a number of new wheels and the cars can be specified in the brighter shades of new light blue and matt light green.

In addition, it is now possible to open the lower tailgate using just one of its two release levers rather than both as previously. A new upper dashboard design is the most striking interior change and the styling of the fabric-covered instrument panel, which houses restyled dials, complements the improved fabric and color designs available for the cockpit, seats and door panels.

All models now benefit from extra storage in the shape of a new glovebox design and net pockets on seat side bolsters. There are new steering wheel designs too, either a three-spoke leather sports wheel or a two-spoke leather item with matte chrome bezel.

Enhanced technology is another feature, with some model gaining USB/iPod connectivity and high line audio and navigation system, which has a large 6.5" touchscreen display, RDS radio, Bluetooth, auxiliary and USB ports, iPod interface and CD/DVD/SD functionality. The new generation smart continues to use the same engines as its predecessor, with the popular 71hp micro hybrid-drive gasoline unit fitted with softip transmission now emitting just 97g/km CO2 - an improvement of 6g/km. This means the most popular gasoline and diesel engines in the smart range now fall below 100g/km CO2. In fact, the entire smart range now emits less than 120g/km CO2.

Earlier this year, Subaru announced the WRX STI would get a 5-horsepower boost for 2019. No, it wasn’t much, but at least the STI would no longer be outgunned by the turbocharged four-cylinder Mustang. Subaru’s latest special edition STI, however, comes with a much less underwhelming boost in power. It’s called the WRX STI TC 380, and
