Hello - a newbie here looking at purchasing my first smart car. I went to the dealership (Hunt Club) on the weekend and all they had for choice were base black coupes and a black and white coupe with "Canadian Package". Where are all the choices/color/varieties I see in pictures and driving around town? Why must my choice be a base car with Bluetooth/NAV or a upgraded car with no Bluetooth/NAV? Am I missing something? Why can't I get a car in the color I want with the features I want?

Welcome to the club!

If you're looking for more selection I suggest that you call Noah:

smart specialist

MB Markham

8350 Kennedy Rd (N of hwy 407)

Noah.kroll@mercedes-benz.ca

905-305-1088

This gentleman supported our club at the recent Mystery Run and I know that one of our members in London bought a smart from him and was very pleased with the transaction.

I went to Hunt Club to get mine. You can get all the options you want but you have to wait for it to be made and shipped there. It takes 12 weeks usually............

smart142 - Thanks but I am not driving over 4 hours for a car dealership.

Accept2 - Thanks - guess the sales guy wasn't clear on that - his attitude seemed to be here is what we have - take it or leave it ...

BTW - the cars he was showing me were advertised as 2015 and looked identical to the 2014 but from what I see online the new 2015's are the 453 and look different than the 451. Is this correct?

Welcome! 2015s will be 453's in Europe (I believe), but we will be getting 451's for 2015. We should be getting the 453 for the 2016 model year.

Personally, I prefer the all black, but based on the steel rims, it's a pure (And based on your original description, has the nav/bluetooth), while the other, presumably a passion, does not have the nav or bluetooth. Colour wise, you may be able to convince them to swap the panels for you if you want one with the colours of the other.

Thanks - I didn't know they could swap the panels around for a sale. Any insight as to the contents of the "canadian package"? The smart canada website is very lacking in details ...

Noah describes a Canadian package (Probably the same one) HERE

PURE Canadian Package - Is essentially a PURE plus Alloy Wheels, LED drl's and Panoramic roof.

Which I guess means the white one is the one with the Canadian Package, and is actually a pure.

Except the Pure he lists has the multimedia touchscreen radio standard, while the white one has just a standard radio.

Yes - so I am having a hard time deciding. I like the panoramic roof, rims and color of the white one - but like the bluetooth/NAV of the black one.

They might swap the radio for you if you ask nicely (For an added price...)? That's assuming that they both have equivalent speakers and whatnot of course.

I would just order one the way you want it. I think its a North American thing to just buy whats on the lot. If I am getting a new car it should be my way or the highway. When I went in they told me 12 weeks, but they did find one in the specs I wanted already on the boat, so it was reserved and it only took 4 or 5 weeks...........
