Performance
The fortwo is certainly not going to win any races, but the improved acceleration is admirable. Handling is also improved thanks to the wider stance, but it feels a bit top-heavy when entering corners quickly. The new dual-clutch transmission provides smooth shifts once the car is moving; however, the ride is rough in stop-and-go traffic — the gears don’t seem to engage smoothly at slow speeds.
