Ironically, my "worst of Geneva" pick is – much like the CLA Shooting Brake – is also from the Daimler group. As cool and funky as it might look, the Forease+ is more of the same in the sense it's merely an evolution of the Forease speedster shown last year in Paris. The only real change is the adoption of a removable fabric roof. Big whoop.
Don't get me wrong, it looks smart (pun intended), but the fact it's essentially a recycled concept is a big turnoff. Smart has had some truly interesting concepts over the years, but the Forease+ is not on that list. Aside from the all-too-familiar exterior, the interior looks plain, certainly not worthy of the vehicle's concept status.
