Masterparts stocks a range of aftermarket Smart car parts and spares for Smart models available in South Africa.
Are parts from Masterparts cheaper than those from Smart dealers?
Parts and spares from Masterparts are generally less expensive than those available directly from Smart dealers in South Africa. However, this doesn’t mean you’ll be compromising on quality.
We deal directly with many original equipment manufacturers and suppliers (OEM and OES), locally and internationally. The parts and spares we provide are the same quality as those offered by dedicated Smart dealers, just at lower prices.

Smart models we offer parts for
We offer Smart parts and spares for the smart fortwo and the smart forfour models.
The design for the first Smart car was the idea of Nicolas Hayek, CEO of the company responsible for the Swatch brand of watches. The car featured a stylish but very compact body.
Up to 1993, Hayek partnered with Volkswagen. He then signed on with Daimler-Benz (now Daimler AG).
The first Smart car, the Smart City-Coupé, was released in 1998. However, it had a conventional gas engine rather than the hybrid drivetrain that Hayek had envisioned.
The Smart City-Coupé, renamed the smart fortwo, was followed by a four-seater super-mini and the Roadster sports car.
After a period under the Smart GmbH marque, production of Smart cars continued under Daimler’s Mercedes-Benz Cars division.
Since 2018, Smart has been producing only battery-electric cars, under the EQ Smart marque.
In 2019, Geely purchased a 50% stake in the brand. In a joint venture, Geely and Daimler are manufacturing the latest range of Smart vehicles in China.
