Busy as a bee is the rumour mill with the word out that Mercedes-Benz and Renault has partnered to bring about the revival of the Smart Roadster.

Smart may be looking to reach out beyond their mini urban transportation specialties with the help of Renault, something that the French car-maker is well versed with producing inexpensive small cars, which might just be what Smart is looking for.

There isn’t anything confirmed about which Renault platform the Roadster will be based on and there is word about a Mini Countryman competitor indicating a keen sense of providing Mini some competition in the near future for the CUV class of vehicles.
