The all-new, third generation Twingo has the distinction of having its engine in the rear. Renault claims, that it's more compact, spacious and agile than the current car - and it's certainly more stylish and fun.
There are three trim levels (Expression, Play and top-spec Dynamique) and two three-cylinder engines a 1.0-litre naturally aspirated unit with 70bhp and a 900cc turbocharged one with 90bhp.
All versions have body-coloured bumpers, door handles and door mirror shells, a rear spoiler and LED daytime running lights. There's also electric front windows, remote central locking, a speed limiter, a height-adjustable steering wheel and a trip computer. Practically is aided by a unique-in-segment folding front passenger seat and a plit-folding two-seat rear bench.
As become the norm, an extensive range of personalisation optins will allow customers to tailor a virtually bespoke Twingo, such as interior style pack and an exterior sport pack.
Key options are an electric panoramic fabric sunroof, rear parking sensors, a choice of premium sound systems and the 'Seats', 'Techno', and 'Convenience' packs, which offer themed items of extra equipment at lower prices than if bought individually.
Connectivity comes as standard via a new, smartphone-operated R & GO system. This combines the stereo, a universal cradle and a free app to provide access to navigation, telephone, multimedia and trip computer functions as well as internet radio and other practical features.
Dynamique models offer the option of the R-Link multimedia system with a 7in touchscreen, voice control, TomTom navigation and a Arkamys 3D sound system.
A rear-mounted engine driving the back weheels promises entertaining driving characteristics as well as packaging advantages - the new Twingo is 10cm shorter than its predecessor at 3.59m, but has a 12cm longer wheelbase (2.49 Metres) and a 22cm more cabin room. It also has a full complement of five doors.
The luggage capacity is 219 lithres and can be extended to 980 litres by flding the 50:50 slip rear seat. There is also 52 litres of personal storage space within the cabin, including a removable compartment at the bottom of the centre console as well as space under the front seats and a large glovebox.
The new Twingo shares its platform with the next generation of Smart Forfour, thanks to a collaboration with Daimler. Both cars will be built at Renault's factory in Novo Mesto, Slovenia.
