ATLANTA, Aug. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- BRABUS is returning to the smart lineup in the U.S. market, featuring a sport package on fortwo coupe and cabrio models. Available as a $1,900 option, the BRABUS Sport Package allows customers to further customize their smart fortwo with unique styling and a sportier driving experience.
The introduction of the all-new BRABUS Sport Package expands the customization options on smart fortwo coupe and cabrio models. Exclusively available on the smart lineup, the BRABUS Sport Package is available for both manual and twinamic transmissions on passion, prime and proxy trim levels.
For a sportier driving experience, the BRABUS Sport Suspension lowers the vehicle by 0.4 in (10 mm) compared to the standard smart fortwo. Additional suspension upgrades, including a stiffer anti-roll bar and new BRABUS-tuned damping system, ensures a sporty ride and improves handling and driving dynamics.
The BRABUS Sport Package gives the car a more aggressive look with staggered fitment Monoblock IX wheels finished in matte grey paint (Front: 16" / Rear: 17"). These performance wheels are fitted with Yokohama summer performance tires (Front: 185/50 R16 / Rear: 205/40 R17).
The BRABUS Sport Package offers unique interior and exterior styling options., including BRABUS wheel center caps, a matte grey rear diffusor and both a BRABUS front spoiler and rear apron finished in the vehicle's body color.
The interior features grey stitching on the BRABUS 3-spoke multifunction sport steering wheel and BRABUS logos on the gear knob and handbrake lever. The upholstery parallels the trim level—passion, prime or proxy—of the smart fortwo. The interior is further refined by brushed stainless steel sport pedals with rubber studs. Models equipped with the twinamic transmission also add steering wheel mounted paddle shifters.
The BRABUS Sport Package will be available on 2017 smart fortwo coupes and cabrios starting this fall.

Classified as ultra-low emissions vehicles by the State of California Air Resources Board, smart models are 8.8 feet long and just over 5 feet tall by 5 feet wide.

All smart vehicles, designed to be 85% recyclable and over 95% reclaimable, are produced in the environmentally oriented "smartville" factory in Hambach, France.
