NEW TWINGO : RENAULT’S FRESH TAKE ON ITS POPULAR CITY CAR 

Renault has taken a fresh, bold look at Twingo. Twenty years after the introduction of the original, Renault is proud to take the wraps off the third generation of its small city car which has undergone an in-depth transformation. In addition to its cheerful expression, New Twingo is available in a choice of four body colours and is packed with innovations. Extensive personalisation opportunities are naturally part of the programme.

 

Playful, energetic styling 

New Renault Twingo was inspired not only by the original Twingo but also by the Renault 5. It is a modern take on the city car theme with the accent on innovation in terms of its lines and architecture. New Twingo is a fun, playful and vibrant city car. It is ultra-manoeuvrable, roomy and immensely practical.” Laurens van den Acker, Head of Industrial Design, Renault

 

 

New Twingo represents the ‘Play’ petal of the brand’s lifecycle-based design strategy, building on ideas previously explored by the Twin’Z and Twin’Run concept cars. Its original architecture with the engine at the rear ensures agile handling, along with a cheery expression, a unique profile thanks to its short bonnet and a roomy passenger compartment. New Twingo’s expressive gaze is reinforced by its big head lights, which are topped by the direction indicators, as well as by its LED daytime running lights. Like its forebear, 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!

New Twingo: roomy, practical and ultra-manoeuvrable 

 

Thanks to the bold decision to locate the engine at the rear, New Twingo is able to offer far greater agility and a bigger cabin than would be expected from a car with an overall length of just 3.59 metres. New Twingo’s turning circle of 8.65 m helps it to turn easily in cramped spaces. Indeed, compared with its competitors, it needs a metre less space to perform a U-turn. New Twingo’s flat floor, 50/50-split folding rear seat (which houses additional stowage opportunities) and forward-tipping front passenger seat back ensure a highly modular interior which adapts easily to the user’s needs of the moment. With the engine tucked underneath it, the boot (219 dm3) is particularly practical thanks to its rectangular floor and the fact that the wheel arches do not intrude on the available space. The flat sill is at the ideal height for loading, while the 50/50-split rear seat bench folds easily to reveal a flat boot floor of 1.35 m in length.

A fun-loving, energising and connected interior  

 

The passenger compartment of New Twingo has generous glazed areas. The dashboard features uncluttered forms and the interior trim plays on a contrast between black and white. New Twingo offers to the buyers two connectivity solutions. The R & GO ® application, which is a free download for owners, enables smartphones to link to the vehicle’s radio. It offers drivers a menu of functions like navigation, telephone, media, and trip computer. On the latest versions of New Twingo, R-Link multimedia system will be available.

 

 

 

A Twingo for all tastes: exterior and interior personalisation  

 

Thanks to a wide choice of colours, graphics and interior themes, New Twingo can be ordered to match the owners’ individual tastes, from sporty to ‘zen’, masculine or feminine, or even ‘vintage’, with graphics inspired by the Renault 5.

This personalisation programme enables customers to customise their New Twingo with co-ordinated exterior and interior decor elements colour-keyed to the exterior bodywork.
