The interior changes brought by the facelift only cover the materials and colors used and while this might not sound too interesting, our test car managed to capture our attention by using black leather (a pretty fine one) with red stitching on the central instrument cluster cover.
The same material was used for the steering wheel and we have to tell you that it's funny to see how the leather on a Twingo, albeit covering microscopic surfaces, feels nicer to touch than the entry-level one offered by Mercedes and BMW.
Unfortunately, not all the boxes on the interior quality list are ticked, as, for example, you can see the wiring of the roof light at the base of the plastic that holds the interior rear view mirror in place.
The seats lack any form of lateral support but they are comfortable, even if you use the vehicle for incredibly long trips like we did. Speaking of long trips, the two individual seats in the back also offer a decent level of comfort, which, coupled with the reasonable space, means that the car can truly cater for the transportation needs of four adults.
It's easy to find a good driving position and thanks to the fact that the Twingo relies on the exterior details rather than on its shape to create an original look, you don't have to deal with any strange shapes and thus the visibility is excellent.
The vehicle's interior has "versatile" written all over it, as the independent rear seats can be folded and turned into a table, can be pulled forward to increase the luggage space or removed altogether.
The cabin of the Twingo might not be as fun as its exterior, but the original layout of the instruments and the practicality, which includes front door storage spaces with draining holes (we discovered this when we accidentally spilled a water bottle) make it a good package and not just for city trips.Continue reading
