Smart Paint Code Location
What does your Smart Car's color code mean?
Smart car paint codes tend to vary in length and composition depending on the year and model. Some may have three characters, and others will have four. Typically, they will have a mix of numbers and letters.
An example code is: C02L
C02L is the color code for Tridion Silver Metallic, which is a top pick for Forfours. Other examples include C50L/ EAD River Silver Metallic.
The code can be written both ways, and you can use both on our online searching tools.
On the VIN sticker, the Smart Car paint code is often on the right-hand side of the tag near the bottom. Unfortunately, it doesn't have a header to identify it by, but it should be placed just above the bar code.
Smart Car Trivia
Smart Car was born out of a collaboration of Mercedes Benz and the Swiss company Swatch. The Swatch CEO felt there was a market for small, personalized, and stylish micro vehicles. Despite struggles in the early 2000s, Geely purchased a 50% stake of the company and now plans to open a new plant in China.
The Fortwo and Forfour and the company's leading models. The initial model was just 8.8 feet long and under 5.5 feet wide, which was part of its popularity for city dwellers. Despite their size, the micro cars have been rigorously safety tested. An SUV was once placed on its Tridon safety frame to prove its sturdiness.
