    1. A few years ago I rented a Smart Car for a couple days. The inside is as roomy as any small car, but getting into it feels odd as there is very little car behind the driver's seat. They drive just fine and get around 60 MPG. The diesel ones do even better. They are great around town and will run highway speeds, but it's unnerving to look up at truck tires.

    1. They are not unusual in San Diego. I've seen lots of them, but in other parts of the country they are not so common.

    1. They make great sense in congested cities. They get around just fine, use little fuel, and as you say, are easy to park.

    1. In the U.S. they are gas engine. In Europe and Canada they also off a diesel motor. Perhaps they now have an electric version, but I think these are gas powered.
