Driving with the Renault Twingo: Is it for you?

The Renault Twingo was first unveiled in 1992 at the Paris Motor Show. A year later, it started production and was sold in continental European markets.  A combination of the words “Twist”, “Swing”, and “Tango,” the Twingo launched its second-generation model in 2006. It was later on restyled in 2011 to showcase Renault’s new design identity dubbed the Circle of Life. Along with more immediate brand identification, the Twingo also features a more appealing front end, with round sidelights and fog lamps to highlight its playful character.

Pros

New colors have been added to the range available for the Renault Twingo, like the Fuchsia et Bermudes Blue, aiding in attracting more attention to the car’s redesign. And speaking of redesigns, the Twingo may also be fitted with a sunroof, an option open to certain markets where Renault is selling the vehicle.

The Renault Twingo is marketed as a fun car, with its interiors matching this characteristic perfectly through coordinated colors on the air conditioning controls and door inserts. Side air vents also come in a number of shades so you can customize your Twingo however you want. Quality is of course impeccable, as shown in the improved dashboard featuring denser grains.

The Renault Twingo also scores plus points for smart packaging, most especially in the way it combined seats. Seats at the back, for instance, are split and may be moved forward or backward separately to boost boot size when needed. The passenger seat may also be folded away and turned into a table while the rear seats may be removed to turn the Twingo into the smallest van in the world.

Its small size is definitely a limitation on the Renault Twingo but it is this very same factor that allows this vehicle to do things bigger cars can’t. It’s agile for one and suspension is quite soft so you’re not in for a jerky ride. You may experience some level of body rolling but the Twingo stands up to others in its category as one of the most enjoyable of small cars in the market today.

Cons

A lot has happened to the Renault Twingo on the outside but not so much under the hood. It’s just got one engine option available as a result of streamlining Renault’s UK lineup. So, if you’re interested in the Twingo, this means sticking it out with a 74bhp 1.2-litre petrol engine. It’s not so bad for city driving but it definitely takes away the power to choose an engine that would address your needs best. Not to mention that 74bhp really isn’t much power at all.

Renault definitely made an effort when it comes to color options but many of the interior components are left wanting, like the steering wheel that feels incredibly cheap and uncomfortable. Front seats also lack support and the already-disappointing steering wheel cannot be adjusted. The dashboard features an appealing design but it can be overpowered by the immense drabness that is the hard grey plastic it is made from.

Renault Twingo

                Renault Twingo is city car that was produced since the year 1992 by the French multinational automobile manufacturer, Renault S.A. This was designed by Patrick G.

                The car’s name was derived from several words, including twist, swing, and tango. The first generation Twingo was produced in 1992 and sold in the market by April 1993. This was originally assembled at the Flins factory in Frace since 1992, and production later followed in Montevido, Uruguay and in Envigado, Colombia by the year 1997.

                The second generation of the Renault Twingo, also called the Twingo II, was produced since 2007 and is assembled in Novo Mesto, Slovenia. The Twingo II was based on the floorpan of Renault Clìo II and is available as a five speed manual and five speed automatic transmissions. The concept for this car version was first seen at the Mondial de l’Automobile in 2006, and the production version was displayed at the Geneva Motor Show in 2007.

                Other versions of the car include a battery electric vehicle version that was displayed in 2006 at the Geneva Motor Show. Other special and limited editions of the Twingo include the Twingo Renaultsport Gordini, Twingo Renaultsport Silverstone GP, Twingo Renaultsport Red Bull RB7, Twingo Bizu, Twingo Miss Sixty, Twing Gordini TCe 100, and Twingo Pzaz.
