dont get too hung up on miles per gallon. there's also tons of pollutants to measure. perhaps the smart emits less than other cars with equal gas mileage...

I would rather buy a Honda Fit Sport with the 5spd. You get more bang for the buck and then some.

Really close to the same gas mileage- 4 mpg less per gallon
Seats 4
I can haul stuff in it.
Its a Honda
Same cost, if not cheaper.
More fun to drive
More power
Looks Better
Did I mention it looks better?
Runs on 87
