2015 Smart ForTwo Spied Winter Testing

Spy photos of the next generation Smart ForTwo are showing the car undergoing cold weather testing.

Daimler’s littlest arm is going to get a little more shapely in the coming generation with styling cues to come from the Forstars concept seen during the Paris Motor Show last September. The mule seen here doesn’t have anything in common with what the production car will look like, but more revealing test cars can’t be far away.

That’s because its expected to go on sale in 2014 when it will come with a range of gas, diesel and electric powertrains. The electric and gasoline-powered cars will likely carry over, but diesel remains a difficult proposition to U.S. buyers.

    I sure would like a diesel option. I know the marketing people don't think Americans like diesels, but those of us who love our Smart cars are not the "normal" car buyers. And if a 60 mpg diesel were available in the States, I'm betting sales would go up.
