Renault Twingo in Weston-super-Mare
The Renault Twingo is the world’s first rear-wheel-drive and rear-engined city car. That is the same layout as you’ll find in a supercar, and there’s no getting around the fact that is the best-handling and most fun-to-drive Twingo to date. Fun is only half the story with the new Twingo though. There’s an extra 22cm of legroom in the rear, and the turning circle has been reduced for outstanding low-speed manoeuvrability. Add to that fuel economy of up to 67.26mpg combined, a 188-litre boot and a range of high-specification trims, and you the ultimate go anywhere, do anything city car.
With its funky shape and a compact silhouette, the Renault Twingo stands out. Dynamique models come as standard with 15” alloy wheels, and inside, you can go bold with the Interior Touch Pack which adds some colour to the cabin.
You have a choice of SCe and TCe petrol engines, with the SCe 70 returning up to 67.26mpg combined. All engines offer good performance, and the Twingo’s short wheelbase ensures excellent manoeuvrability. Dynamique models come as standard with cruise control.
The Renault Twingo boasts a spacious 188-litre boot, which expands to 980-litres if you fold down the rear seats. Space throughout the cabin is excellent too. 5 doors come as standard, and the back row is full-size with ISOFIX points.
Living with it
The Renault Twingo is an easy car to live with. Dynamique models and above come as standard with cruise control for effortless motorway driving, and all models get LED daytime running lights and Hill Start Assist to improve all-round safety.
