Powering the new Fortwo are a trio of new three-cylinder engines displacing 1.0L and ranging in output from 61hp to 84hp. A diesel unit is carried over from the previous model and delivers 45hp. The only transmission is a sequential five-speed gearbox from Getrag that enables a maximum speed of 145km/h, 10 more than the old version. A more powerful Brabus enhanced version is due in autumn next year.
The new Fortwo will come in three different flavors including Pure, Passion and Pulse, with the latter model sporting a panoramic glass roof. Sales will start in spring of next year for European markets ahead of its official debut in the US in early 2008, most likely under a new dealer network being run by the United Auto Group.
