The fresh styling cues of the Twingo do much more than just replace those of the model we tested last year - they're an indication for Renault's future design identity, as the car is the first to use the carmaker's new styling language, which will be seen on all future Renaults.
You can tell that this is a little car with a big attitude from the moment you spot the headlight eyelids (take this tuners!), the big Renault logo, as well as the positioning of the fog lights. The modifications have also brought the car closer to the image of the first Twingo.
These changes, together with a few ones brought to the rear end, such as more rounded lines, contribute to better aerodynamics and therefore increase the efficiency of the car a little bit.
Renault also made efforts to bring the Twingo closer to status vehicles such as the MINI or the FIat 500. Just look at the two new colors introduced by the revamp: the first is the Bermuda Blue shade of our test car, while the second has a name that speaks for itself: Fuchsia.
In addition to that, we have more factory-fitted decals, some of which can be assorted with certain interior details and more ally wheel designs.
While the result isn't the most masculine we've seen, the various combination of colors brings a strong personality to the car, with this being confirmed by the sea of heads our test vehicle turned while being driven through the city. We have to admit that this is a pretty nice effect for a car with such a low price.
The facelift focuses on exterior changes, so the cabin only received a few fresh goodies, but these will go unnoticed to most eyes. However, if you're interested in Buying a Twingo you will want to know what there are - you can find them in the next chapter.Continue reading
Hold on, Sir May B. Bach would like to say something...
Do they still sell this piece of canned stupidity on wheels? Gentlemen, do call my mistress and ask her to... ahem... pinch me, I must be trapped inside a nightmare: not only is it still on the market, but a team of designers and engineers took the time to offer it a revamp. This can’t be real!
