Renault Twingo hatchback
- Distinctive looks
- Decent luggage and passenger space
- Low running costs
- Expensive compared to rivals
- No five-door model
- Quality still patchy
The Twingo did get an update in 2011 to try and compete, adding a new grille, headlamps and a new range of colours to brighten it up. Even more so, the interior also got a makeover that introduced soft-touch plastics, a higher premium feel and gave the car a far more upmarket appeal than previous models.
It's always been a practical, spacious car, but now the Twingo stands out a bit and feels like a genuinely good car to own. It's only available in one specification – the Dynamique 1.2-litre 16v three-door.
