Renault Twingo gets range-topping Dynamique S trim
The Renault Twingo Dynamique S comes with loads of kit and offers a funky Sport Pack as standard
Renault has added the new Twingo Dynamique S TCe 90 to its city car range, costing £12,545 and available to order now. Intended as the flagship of the standard Renault Twingo range, the Dynamique S comes with a Sport Pack as standard that adds a number of styling touches.
The Dynamique S is powered by the same turbocharged 0.9-litre engine available in the formerly range-topping Dynamique TCe 90 – this engine is good for 0-62mph in 10.8 seconds, with a top speed of 103mph.
On the outside, the Twingo Dynamique S has 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, matt black side decals and red styling touches on the door mirrors, side door protectors and front grille insert. If this touch pack is a little too garish for your taste, white is a no-cost option. The paintwork itself can be specified in Crystal White, Diamond Black or Flame Red.
The Twingo Dynamique S offers impressive fuel economy of 65.7mpg, aided by stop-start, which is standard. This is only 1mpg less than the greenest Twingo in the range, the Dynamique SCe 70 Stop & Start. CO2 emissions are 99g/km, which means there's no annual road tax to pay.
Inside, unique to this trim, the Dynamique S has an aluminium pedal set, red/black part-leather upholstery and a red interior touch pack. This pack adds colourful finishing touches to the steering wheel, centre console and air vents.
Other equipment fitted as standard includes daytime running lights, cruise control, lane-departure warning, air-conditioning and electric power steering.
As with all Renault models, the Twingo comes with a 100,000-mile/four-year warranty – with the first two years offering unlimited miles. All-inclusive service packages are available to spread out the cost of maintenance.
The Renault Twingo goes up against Carbuyer favourites such as the Skoda Citigo and Volkswagen up! in the city car class. The Dynamique S is the most expensive Twingo, but it still costs less than the top-of-the-range up! and offers better fuel economy, too.
The Dymanique S can be ordered now, with first deliveries expected in April 2015.
