Renault at Geneva Motor Show 2014, has taken the wraps off the third generation Renault Twingo.
The new Twingo, which is packed with several new features, is available in a choice of four body colours. Thanks to the positioning of the engine at the rear, the new Twingo, as per the auto maker, is more agile and boasts of a turning circle of 8.65m, which is an average one metre less than that of its direct rivals. New Twingo is 13cm longer between the two set of wheels, even when its overall length has been shortened by 10cm.
The new Renault Twingo, which is available in five-door architecture, has clever stowage solutions, totally flat floor and a surprisingly long maximum load length of 2.20m, all of which make it supremely practical. The boot conceals either a normally-aspirated or a turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine. Both powerplants are fuel efficient and deliver punchy performance. New Twingo offers a choice of two multimedia systems: the R & GO radio and R-Link Evolution.
In addition to the unveiling of New Twingo, Renault has chosen the 2014 Geneva Motor Show to present other new developments in its small car range.
Renault’s new Flexi Charger, a cable which allows ZOE owners to plug their electric vehicle into an ordinary household power socket. Renault has also introduced a new Z.E. Access battery lease plan withprices starting from £45 per month for low-mileage motorists.
The new Energy dCi 160 Twin Turbo is a showpiece of downsizing and twin turbocharging. This 1,598cc Diesel engine delivers the driving enjoyment of a two-litre powerplant, but with fuel consumption reduced by 25%. It will notably be available for the brand’s upcoming D- and E-segment models.
