Smart cars require special consideration when attempting to tow them. Because of their small size and low weight, smart cars have to be towed flat --- meaning on all four wheels. Another option for towing a smart car is a flatbed trailer. A flatbed trailer will reduce wear and tear on your smart car and reduce the miles racked up on the odometer. A smart car cannot be towed with its front axle in the air. This can damage the breaking system and will not be covered under warranty.
