You have to keep 1 thing in mind. Kelly Blue Book is not the industry standard value guide. NADA is. Dealerships typically use Kelly Blue Book when assessing trade-ins, yet use NADA when assessing used cars being placed on the lot to sell. In most cases, the assessed value according to Kelly Blue Book is lower than that of NADA. According to NADA, the "clean trade in" aka "showroom condition" is only $9600USD for a Smart Fortwo Passion with Leather, Sunroof and alloy wheels. Only $9150USD for a Smart Fortwo Pure with leather, sunroof and alloy wheels. Considering it's been involved in an accident, regardless of damage done, $8,500 is in-line with the average value of $8,325 as assessed by NADA. NADA = National Automotive Dealers Association.
