The 89bhp 0.9-litre turbocharged Forfour is definitely the model to choose if you regularly drive on the motorway. It’s not the quickest city car, but is much gutsier than the 70bhp 1.0-litre non-turbo version, which has to be worked far harder to make decent progress.
The four-seat Forfour is around £500 more expensive than the two-seat Fortwo, and is pricier than most of its mainstream rivals, although it is pretty well equipped and there are lots of ways to personalise it.
Every version has climate and cruise controls, 15-inch alloys and ‘Readyspace’ rear seats, whose bases and seatbacks can be flipped down separately to boost luggage space. However, essential kit such as driver’s seat-height adjustment, steering wheel height adjustment and digital radio are all optional extras.
The Premium package is fairly pricey but includes sat-nav, a large touchscreen system that’s much easier to use then the standard infotainment set-up, and rear parking sensors.
