Renault Twingo

Renault Twingo rear

Unlike all its rivals such as the Volkswagen Up, Peugeot 108 and Hyundai i10, the Twingo's engine is mounted at the back rather than at the front and drives the rear wheels. This has allowed Renault to give the car a stubby 'wheel at each corner' look, impressive space in the back and incredible low speed agility.

The Twingo shares its chassis with the Smart ForFour while a shortened version of the platform underpins the ForTwo. The Twingo is priced from just under £10,000, is available in three trim levels and with two petrol engine choices with the Dynamique TCe model at the top of the range. 

The pick of the range is the Play SCe70 which has all the kit you really need, including air conditioning and driver’s seat height adjustment. While good value, this means the Renault Twingo is a tad more expensive than a Skoda Citigo and Hyundai i10.

For now there isn't an automatic version of the new Twingo - all cars get a five speed manual gearbox. There is a wide range of personalisation options and colour scheme combinations while standard equipment across the entire range includes front electric windows, DAB digital radio and a system which alloys you to link your smartphone up to the car and use that as its central display and infotainment system.
