dawdle to drive smoothly and helps you perform very cheeky u-turns although because the wheelbase is quite compact well it’s very compact these cars all have a tendency to hop and jump as a single entity over slightly bigger abrasions in the road or things

like speed humps bastard for previous customers stepping out of the last generation smart fortwo the difference in refinement is like day and night the engines quieter the ride comfort is more compliant but the biggest improvement
