Masterparts stocks a range of aftermarket parts and spares for Smart vehicles, including the smart fortwo and the smart forfour.
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 obtain parts directly from original equipment manufacturers and suppliers (OEM and OES). Often the Smart car parts and spares we supply are identical to those offered by Smart dealers – just at lower prices.
Types of Smart parts we provide
Masterparts doesn’t offer body panels, lights or mirrors for any car makes or models. It’s likely that we can provide almost any other Smart part or spare you need. Some of the most commonly requested Smart parts Masterparts supplies are spark plugs; brake pads, disks and rotors; fuel, oil, air and engine filters; water pumps; and timing belt kits.

Smart models we offer parts for
We offer Smart parts and spares for the smart fortwo and the smart forfour, currently the only Smart car models available in South Africa.
The design for the first Smart car, featuring a stylish but very compact body, was the idea of Nicolas Hayek, CEO of the company responsible for the Swatch brand of watches.
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 – with 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.
In 2019, Geely purchased a 50% stake in the brand. Planning is now underway for production of a new generation of Smart cars.
