Renault has always been good at producing small cars, and the Twingo is no exception. A tiny city car with a lot of character, it’s one of the most popular superminis around, and for good reason. Newer models look great, but the overall package has been at the pinnacle of the genre for years. If you’re after something that’s pint sized but packs a big punch, the Twingo could be for you.
First released in 1992, the Twingo has been around for quite a while now, but if anything it has matured with age like a fine wine. While the original one looked a bit like a confused frog, it was nonetheless popular, and the latest offerings are sporty, funky and full of French chic. This 3 door hatchback really does offer quite a lot.
Yes exterior design has always been one of the Renault’s plus points and you can immediately tell it’s French. There’s a certain ‘joie de vivre’ about it that is contagious and makes you want to get in and go. Inside things are solid and laid out in a logical fashion, but the Twingo could be accused of being rather ‘plastic’ across the board. It is comfortable though, and there’s actually quite a lot of space inside for such a small car.
The Twingo yearns to be out on the road, and you can really tell as the driving experience is fantastic. It’s everything you expect a city car to be, and the nippy performance is accentuated with sharp handling and a quite a lot of poise. Basically it’s great for crowded urban areas and so easy to park. Fuel economy is low thanks to some tiny engines, so you won’t break the bank by any means.
