Not to start a thread on this, but I am curious about how the two compare, in your opinion (apart from the DCQC, of course).

Well one has 4 seats and the other has 2 - that automatically places the Smart at a huge disadvantage in terms of utility.

As has been said, the rear seats fold down to create a usefully square load area. I have had a washing machine in there already, and no problems fitting it in, and 2 carts of Costco stuff - try doing that in a Smart

From my own personal views, I trust Japanese reliability, and I don't trust anyone else's anymore.
