Renault Twingo hatchback

The Renault Twingo competes with models such as the Volkswagen up! and the Hyundai i20, although it is starting to feel old against these newer rivals and a new model is set to be revealed at this year's Paris Motor Show in October.

Dwindling sales mean the Twingo is now only available with one engine, although it can compete with the best in class when it comes to CO2 emissions and fuel economy. The Renault is also limited to one trim level, which means it is well equipped, but also looks expensive compared to the more basic models offered by rival manufacturers.

The Renault got a minor facelift in 2011 and with it came new colours and a host of customisable options designed to make your Twingo stand out from the crowd.
