If you have a need for a weather proof toad vechicle for two people, there is no better choice than the Smart. If you need to transport more than two people, you don't need a Smart car.
We do not tow ours four down nor would I tow any car four down for that matter. The ability to back up and use the aluminum trailer for things like picking up fire wood with the Smart at the camp site works very well. I see much less road rash from towing on our Smart than any 4 down toad in the camp ground.
Our Aluma tilt bed trailer weighs around 625 lbs and the Smart weighs around 1750 lbs which yields less than 2400 lb towing load. The all aluminum trailer can easily be around by hand when unloaded.
