Renault has given its Twingo city car a radical redesign to keep the model ahead of its rivals in a competitive class. Refreshed styling and an unconventional rear engine arrangement are just the start of what you can expect. There are refined engines and a choice of many personalisation options to get the car that reflects your tastes.
The latest-generation Twingo has plenty of character which is shown through its expressive front fascia. Rounded headlamps sit between a wide mesh grille, and a second intake below it gives the car a distinctive 'face'. Short and rear overhangs keep the dimensions compact, while alloy wheels and a rear spoiler are sporty additions to the body. Modern decals, stylish alloy designs and bold paint finishes feature across the model range.
The charming eccentricity exterior design is matched by the cabin, where you can customise the finish of the steering wheel, air vent surrounds and dashboard trim. It seats four people in total, and by not trying to squeeze five into the cabin Renault gives everyone ample space. The rear bench also splits in half to increase the boot capacity if you need to carry more luggage.
Few other city cars can claim to offer as much advanced in-car kit as the all-new Twingo. Every model arrives with a DAB digital radio tuner featuring USB and Aux input. As well as connecting a personal music device to the system you can link your smartphone via Bluetooth and take calls hands-free. By downloading the R&GO smartphone app and mounting your phone to the dash you can also add a touchscreen display to the cabin.
A choice between two engines is offered by Renault when you opt for the Twingo Dynamique or Twingo Dynamique S. The SCe 70 petrol unit produces 70hp and plenty of torque to make it responsive and exciting. Certain models add Renault's start/stop system too for improved fuel economy and CO2 emissions. Up to 67.3mpg combined is possible from the engine. The energetic TCe 90 turbo petrol delivers 90hp and 135Nm of torque, and is sure to satisfy motorists who want extra pace without a compromise on economy.
Renault has made the all-new Twingo reassuringly safe as well as efficient, with much of its advanced safety technology fitted as standard. Electronic Stability Control (ESC) keeps you in control if the car loses grip and the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) prevents the wheels from locking up if you brake suddenly. Choose the Dynamique or Dynamique S for a lane departure warning system at no extra cost.
