Is this BRABUS the BEST tuned SUV on sale?

Satisfy the Smart # 1 !

It's the top-of-the-range performance edition of the brand-new Smart # 1, however the concern is, does it should have to come embellished with the name, which is frequently synonymous with luxury and high performance?

Well, let's begin with the power statistics. The typical # 1 includes a single electric motor which can produce 272hp. Nevertheless this Brabus edition comes with an extra electrical motor on the front axel, and combined it can put down 428hp! What's more, it likewise has a claimed 0-60mph time of just 3.9 seconds!

Then we have the style, and there are plainly a number of styling modifications over the typical automobile. At the front you have 2 vents in the bonnet, in addition to a red impact on the grille and a prolonged front splitter. There are unique alloy styles consisted of, along with an extended side skirt with some red trim. Then lastly at the back the are some more visual modifications, including an extended spoiler. All-in-all the modifications are mostly visual, but it certainly looks more aggressive than the normal # 1!

Step within and it's quite the same story. You'll find smatterings of red stitching and colouring throughout the cabin, however otherwise, the # 1 Brabus is pretty much identical to the normal automobile – but that's no bad thing!

The Smart # 1 Brabus expenses around ₤ 43,000 – about ₤ 4,000 more than the range-topping Smart # 1. So is it worth it ?! You'll require to stick with Mat and see for yourself!

    Looks like a cross between a mini Cooper clubman and a eqe

      That is the perfect description

      Basically the Mercedes EQ design team took the Mini Clubman structure and applied their design language to it. That is probably what literally happened.

    This vs the MG4 X power would be great in a drag race.

      I’ve driven both the MG is 435 Hp 600 Nm torque the Brabus 428 Hp 543 Nm. 3.9 v 3.8 0-62 although they are both quicker. The MG does the quarter mile in 12 seconds dead. I can only estimate the Brabus at around 12.5 seconds. Even though the MG is slightly quicker and £7k cheaper I’ve bought the Brabus because the six pages of extra kit plus the added luxury are well worth the difference to me.

      If we had more electric cars on our roads, it could even improve traffic jams at intersections since they start so fast.

    Shades like the new mini EV. But I loved smart from day 1. It’s a Brabus. Nice bit of kit.

      Brabus cant modify any aspect of an EV other than aesthetics. This is not a real Brabus, its just pure marketing. Attach 4 plastic bits and some stickers and idiots will pay a lot more for it.

      ​@PaulBRABUS 1 imo gonna be quite pricey in Asian countries. Probably around $300.000 in Japan and Australia.

      @Woo LALA yes we have to pay 10% import duty and 20% tax on top. This adds £10,000 to the price.

    A little range test between some EVs like the Smart #1 Brabus would be a very great idea

      Brabus Smart 1 gonna cost $450.000 on some countries.

      @Purwanti Allan THAT MUCH ??? what country would put a prize that it’s as high as the revuelto with nothing !

    3. malo devic Avatar
      malo devic

      @Purwanti Allan the lowest prize of it is 45k, but I think that you didn’t understand the prize, bc 450k is extremely expensive and NO one would buy it

      Some of you don’t know, Vietnam and Thailand has a 300% tax. So if a $50k car in US will cost $150k over there, cash only!

      @Hoàn Vũ Massachusetts oof, that makes sense in that case

    Nice car, 5 cool features are rather underwhelming! Raced one of these Brabus versions in my Born E-boost and bet it, then check its stats on my phone later as wasn’t sure what it was, and realised she was prob using half throttle and playing with me!

      Brabus 1 had some nice touches like Nissan Pickup.

    Looks great – I also prefer the Brabus above the normal Smart#1 if I can afford of course, also the MG4 – it is the cousin of the VolvoEX30 right? Same Geely platform and drive train?

    1. imWSss Avatar

      Indeed. Volvo EX30, Smart #1 & #3 and Zeekr X are cousins.

      @imWSss soon to be joined by the Polestar 4 and Lotus.

    3. imWSss Avatar

      @Garry Croft Emeya and Eletre are very different, but Polestar 4 is the brother of Zeekr 001, which these two guys share many similarities with their compact cousins.

    5:42 Matt has a great point here, straight line performance has nothing to do with when we’re talking about the true level of “performance” in a car, it doesn’t matter it’s an electric or ice cars. being said, we all should wait and see what the Hyundai has to offer with their N division on their EVs, especially the Ioniq 5 N!!!!

    1. Garry Croft Avatar
      Garry Croft

      This is quite true, it’s because of weight 1,900kg if you want a fun to drive electric car then the rear wheel drive BMW i3s at 1,285kg is really fun to drive.
      I have one until next week when I get the Brabus.

    2. redone Avatar

      Indeed, but I do have an issue that nowadays people who were used to 2.0 TDI engine cars can jump into a new medium price EV and launch themself into a pole or another car in 3.7s. This EV trend is just road accidents waiting to happend!

      ​@Garry Crofti3 and Brabus 1 both only weighed 1340kgs imo.

    Once sat next to a black Brabus CL My first thought looking at it was if Bielzebub drove that would be his car of choice, I think they had 800bhp

      Brabus CL and 1 have 300bhp plus.

    This BRABUS 1 against MG XPOWER 4 and Wuling Air EV could be an interesting way to do a drag race.

    That’s probably the cleanest brabus car i have seen. They usually make cars too much over the top

      Which is more cleaner? A mansory or Brabus.
