Renault reveals new look Twingo
Renault has previewed the new face-lifted version of the Renault Twingo city car which incorporates the French brand’s new design identity.
Some of the styling changes include a new front end and an enlarged Renault badge on the bonnet, which is also centred in a more vertical position then previously.
The new look is heavily inspired by some of Renault’s recent concept models including the R-Space MPV, Captur crossover and Zoe Z.E. concept.
More details on the new Twingo will likely be revealed prior to the car’s official presentation at the Frankfurt Motor Show this September.
The first and current generation Renault Twingo, is available in seven specifications. The standard ‘Pzaz’ model includes a radio CD player with AUX input, electric front windows and front bumper sport styling.
Most specifications come with a 1.2 litre petrol engine with 75hp, delivering a combined fuel consumption rate of 55.4mpg and CO2 emissions of just 119g/km.
The higher-spec Renaultsport models are equipped with a 1.6 litre petrol unit providing 130hp. With this the four-seater hatchback will accelerate front 0-62mph in 8.7 seconds and hit a top speed of 125mph.
The more powerful engine still delivers a fuel economy of 42.2mpg and emissions of just 155g/km of CO2.
Pricing for the current Renault Twingo starts at £7,795 for the Pzaz specification, and increases up to £14,995 for the limited edition Renaultsport 133 Silverstone GP.
