With 4WD

It seems Mercedes-Benz is bringing back to life plans of launching a Smart SUV/crossover.

It was the year 2005 when Mercedes-Benz played around with the idea of launching an SUV based on the Smart platform. Known as ForMore, the model never got to see the light of day but things may change in the next few years as a new report indicates the Smart lineup will be expanded with a sport utility vehicle sometime in 2016.

What we known so far is that it will come with an increased ride height, body cladding and a four-wheel drive setup (possibly optional). It will most certainly be based on the second generation of the ForTwo which is expected to go on sale in 2014, following a reveal later this year.

A Smart SUV/crossover... isn't that a contradiction in terms?
