2017 Smart Fortwo Cabrio Priced from $19,650

The 2017 Smart Fortwo Cabrio will arrive in U.S. dealerships this fall, starting from $19,650.

With that price tag, the 2017 Smart Fortwo Cabrio is the most affordable convertible on the market and shoppers can opt for a dual-clutch automatic transmission for $990 additional. The model was last offered in the U.S. as a 2015, and Smart brags about its versatility as an open-top, two-seater that serves as three cars in one. With the touch of a button, the new Smart Cabrio can be transformed from a closed two-seater into a car with a large sliding canvas sunroof, or a full-fledged convertible with the soft top completely open.

Sharing its powertrain with the coupe, the Smart Fortwo Cabrio has a 0.9-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine providing 89 horsepower and 100 pound-feet of torque. A five-speed manual transmission is standard. Standard equipment on the subcompact convertible include Bluetooth, automatic climate control, power windows, cruise control, a steering wheel with redundant controls and LED running lights.
