16's you can. 17's absolutely not. There is a 2017 at Three Pont Motors in Victoria that was towed behind some guys RV. Transmission was destroyed. They've put 2 new transmissions in but have not been able to get it to talk to the rest of the car.

TPM bought it back from the customer, he went elsewhere and bought something he could to 4 down.

Yep--the 451 (2008-2015) is pretty easy to flat tow. Here's the link on wiring: http://rvnerds.com/2016/06/20/wiring-a-us-spec-smart-fortwo-451-for-flat-towing/

 

There are some accounts of people messing with bungee cords to stop steering wheel shake, but towing it flat isn't really any different than coasting. To be sure there wasn't a problem, my mother has watched theirs with an iPad sitting in the front seat of the car--no shake.

 

Getting the car ready to go is as simple as key on, shift to neutral (and make sure the display shows "N"), key off; and it's recommended that you wait for the display to shut off before leaving it.
