For A tight turning circle, spacious and versatile interior, and strong resale values all work in the Twingo’s favour, and some versions come with plenty of standard equipment.
Against Spongy controls, a flawed driving position and poor motorway refinement prevent the baby Renault from challenging the class leaders. The lower-powered model is slow, too.
What Car? says
The Renault Twingo mixes cheeky retro styling with genuine practicality. It’s neither as refined nor as comfortable as the best city cars, though.

There are 4 Renault Twingo versions available
Target Price team says:
The nippy 0.9-litre turbo version is available only in top-spec Dynamique trim, which makes it pretty expensive compared with other city cars. The 1.0-litre non-turbo SCe versions are slower, but they’re a lot cheaper and are easier to drive around town, so we’d go for one of those.
The SCe can be combined with three trims: Expression, Play and Dynamique. Play offers the best balance of equipment and price, and includes air-con and a height-adjustable driver’s seat, although you still have to pay extra for alloy wheels and parking sensors.
Most Twingos can be personalised to suit your tastes. There’s a broad range of colour packs for the interior, plus stripes and decals for the exterior and a variety of quirky styling accessories.
