How many people can fit into the diminutive Smart fortwo?The amazing answer is 13, a number that surprised many onlookers following a car cram staged to help celebrate Smart's 10th anniversary. Owners and visitors to the annual Smart Destination Brooklands event held at Mercedes-Benz World in the UK were invited to participate in the Smart-packing challenge.

With remarkable flexibility, a total of 13 contortionists managed to climb aboard the micro Smart, which measures just 8.9ft long by 5.25ft wide, proving that the fortwo is small on the outside but big on the inside.

LOOKING BACK AT THE SUPER STREET COROLLA The new 2021 Toyota Corolla is an entry-level car that we’ve had a ton of experience with as we built a 2019 hatchback two years ago. With the help of our friends at Auto Tuned and a rendering by Jon Sibal, we transformed our little XSE into a

Putting down the first few sentences of a feature like this 1987 Honda CRX Si is a little tougher than usual. It’s not the familiar story of picking up an old, used Honda, adding wheels and a drop before giving in and going all out on a full-blown build. Furthermore, to be clear, it’s also

Rodrez: It’s the measuring stick that offers as much speculation and attempts to discredit driver achievement as it does real-world data and raw, obsessively focused attempts to chip away at the clock.
