Two new cars are redefining the meaning of “compact.” The Smart Fortwo is already selling like hotcakes here in the U.S. And Volkswagon is developing its new Up! vehicle, which it hopes will match the sales phenomenon of the early Beetle.

Can you envision yourself tooling around town in one of these?
UPDATE (4/22/08): But not every Smart car is a little toy. My son just returned from a business trip to Germany, where he snapped this pic of a Smart car that is much more manly.
