New Renault Twingo : the third generation is coming
The DNA of a real Twingo : agile handling and extra cabin space
As all small city cars, New Twingo needs to be agile. Thanks to the position of the engine at the rear, it is manoeuvrable in built-up areas and parking calls for only a few turns of the steering wheel. Indeed, this engine position frees up the front end and considerably improves the turning circle.
Combined with the use of a smaller block and the positioning of the wheels at the car’s extreme corners, the rear-mounted engine also frees up extra cabin space, while New Twingo also boasts the sort of wheelbase and roomy interior more generally associated with models in the next segment up.
A colourful personality
Like its forebear, New Twingo oozes personnality. Its expressive gaze reinforced by its big head lights, which are topped by the direction indicators, as well as by its LED daytime running lights. New Twingo comes in a choice of four vibrant ‘pop’ colours (light blue, white, yellow and red), an unmistakable sign that the Twingo spirit is well and truly back!
Meanwhile, the new city car’s five-door architecture – a first in the history of the model – makes it even more versatile than ever.
New Twingo carries over some of the keys that are behind the success of its sibling, New Clio, including a sleek profile, concealed rear door handles and plenty of scope for personalisation thanks to the range of body colours and customisable exterior trim features like the door mirrors, side protective mouldings and decals.
