The smart forfour Brabus was recently spotted by our photographers, frolicking in the snow. Seeing that it’s a tuned-up version of the little four door, there’s little change in terms of the way it looks save for a new front and rear bumper.

Additionally, the four-door compact here looks like it has been lowered as well, while a dual exhaust system is also present. This perhaps suggests that the Brabus version of the forfour could be packing a little more punch, in terms of power. To recap, the standard forfour comes with a 71 hp/91Nm 999 cc naturally-aspirated unit or a Renault-sourced 90 hp/135 Nm 898 cc turbocharged mill.

That said, seeing how Brabus works, the said mills will likely be tuned to propel the forfour to speeds similar to that of superminis – perhaps somewhere within the range of 110 hp to 130 hp. As a refresher, the forfour is fitted with a five-speed manual or a six-speed dual-clutch transmission that sends power to the rear wheels.


Aside from a firmer suspension setup, other enhancements that can likely be found include thicker anti-roll bars and a tuned steering system to improve the handling. Outside, apart from new bumpers, exterior items might include a different set of wheels as opposed to the ones seen here, and a rear spoiler to spruce up its overall look.

Not much else can be said, seeing that this Brabus-tuned forfour has been relatively discreet. Inside however, a different set of front seats and instrument panel as well as Brabus badges and a different interior trim, could also be a possibility here.
