With the all-new Renault Twingo, Renault has created a vehicle that turns the city into a driver's playground. Fully utilising the heritage of the Renault brand, the brief for the Twingo was to "design a car that smiles and makes you feel happy, with a cheerful, friendly face that brings back memories".
Th exterior design of the Twingo is one that will elicit a fond smile both from long-standing Renault customers and newcomers to the marque's vehicles. Elements such as the tailgate angle, the sculpted sides, the small round lights and the rectangular headlights all draw on inspiration from past models, whilst reinterpreting them for present-day tastes. Alloy wheels are available in 15" and 16" versions, and the exterior is available in colours such as Crystal White, Flame Red, and Powder Blue.
Renault has ensured that the interior luggage space is enough to be able to provide maximum boot space of 980 litres when the rear seats are folded down - an extraordinary figure for such a compact vehicle. Interior technology includes the DAB radio AM/FM tuner with Bluetooth®, AUX and USB compatibility, as well as the R&Go application. There is also the option for Renault R-Link, which operates through a 7" colour touchscreen and includes features such as satellite navigation, drive information, and a reverse parking camera.
A choice of 0.9 or 1.0 litre three-cylinder petrol engines are available to Twingo buyers, with the smaller engine producing 90hp to the 1.0 edition's 70hp. If equipped with Stop/Start technology, the latter can attain combined fuel consumption of 67.2mpg, and CO2 emissions of 95g/km - exempting owners from Vehicle Excise Duty.
Driver and passenger front airbags are included as standard, as is Emergency Brake Assist (EBA) and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) with Hill Start Assist (HSA). A warning is sounded if the seatbelts are not properly fastened, and remote central locking is also included.
