New Renault Twingo at the Geneva Motor Show

Published Date: 22nd Mar 2007

A long-standing player in the small car segment, Renault has sold more than 2.4 million Twingos since the model's launch in April 1993.  Now for the first time UK drivers will be able to get behind the wheel of the ever-popular city car when new Renault Twingo goes on sale in the UK in September 2007.

The launch of New Twingo forms part of Renault Commitment 2009 and the introduction of 26 new cars, including 13 aimed at conquering new markets.  New Twingo boosts Renault 's  presence in the small car segment alongside Clio Campus, Clio III and Modus.

Safety was at the forefront of the New Twingo design team's priorities. Their work covers all aspects of this key area, from positive, predictable road-holding and accident prevention systems to occupant protection in case of impact.  New Twingo's robust construction, braking and suspension performance, ergonomics and equipment from the next segment up put the car at the top end of the small city car segment in terms of safety and ensure its ability to pass even the most stringent crash tests.   Numerous comfort and safety features not previously available for Twingo have also been introduced, including lateral airbags, automatic climate control, cruise control/speed limiter, height-adjustable steering wheel and automatic headlamp activation, etc.

New Twingo is nonetheless very affordable, both to buy and to run.   CO2 emissions do not exceed 140g/km even with the most powerful engine and New Twingo makes a valuable contribution to the '120-140g/km of CO2' pledge of Renault Commitment 2009.
