The German importer is China Automobile Deutschland who claims it'll sell the Noble priced at around €7,000, making it Germany’s cheapest car. A Mercedes spokesman has said the company is looking at legal action and alleges that the Noble is trying to cash in on the hip appeal of the Smart.
One factor being overlooked is safety. Mercedes can afford to sell a car like the Smart because it’s backed by their leading safety record. In crashes with much larger cars, the ForTwo has fared extremely well for such a small car. We wonder how well the Shuanghuan Noble will do.
