The New Renault Twingo

The new Renault Twingo city car is due to go on sale in the UK for the first time this September.

The new Twingo will initially only be available in two sporty engine and trim levels in the UK. The popular and sporty new Renault Twingo Dynamique trim has a 1.2litre 16v 75 petrol engine and the new Renault Twingo GT trim has a new 1.2 TCE 100 engine – this new engine has also been used in recent Renault Clio and Modus models. The Twingo is set to compete against other small cars like the Ford Ka, Citroen C1 and the Peugeot 107.

A key feature of the new Renault Twingo is its versatility. At only 3.6 metres long, the Twingo has two separate rear seats which can slide back and forth by up to 22cm, giving lots of room for 2 adults. Also, both rear seats and the passenger seat can fold flat to give up to 959 litres of storage space.

Launched at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2007, the new model Renault Twingo has recently been test driven by both Auto Express and What Car?

Auto Express commented ‘ With a range of excellent engines plus a keen price tag, the new Renault Twingo has been worth the wait’. From their test drive around Paris they said ‘With accurate steering, a comfortable ride and impressive agility, it’s every inch the grown-up city car.’

What Car? commented ‘The Twingo is surprisingly mature for such a small car, with a supple ride, fine road manners and plenty of space for four’.
