Renault Twingo review

£10,530 - £13,235
Published: 13 Jan 2015
Renault has tried something different with the Twingo, and it's worked

Good stuff

Renault's been brave with the new Twingo and the results have paid off

Bad stuff

The only engine to go for is the dearer one


What is it?

The third generation of Renault’s city car, and every bit as radical now as the first was when it arrived in 1993. Architecture shared with the new Smart ForTwo and ForFour has helped both Renault and Mercedes justify the costs of development and allowed them to be a bit braver with the underpinnings. So here we have a rear-engined hatchback that drives the rear wheels, giving packaging and refinement benefits. 

The current engine line-up is limited to either a turbocharged 0.9-litre or a naturally aspirated 1.0, and we understand Renaultsport will be getting involved at some stage, too. Excellent.

What's the verdict?

As entertaining and satisfying as the old Twingo was mundane and mediocre.
