First impression is Funky and stylish head turner! Soon we were on the dual carriage-way, the power it kicks out is amazing for a 1.2, It would give the Corsa VXR or 1.8 SRi a run for it's money, it gets to grips up with speed well and just keeps going whilst sticking to to the road with no loss of grip from the front or back end. 0-60 in just 9 seconds was impressive. can be a little noisy when idling due to lack of sound insulation to reduce weight of the Twingo and it makes a difference as the Clio 1.2 TCE has all the extra weight and it pays the price on hard acceleration. Styling on the interior was good and attention to detail has gone into the Twingo. chic design tachometer and the idea of the rev counter on the steering column is a good afterthought! seats are comfy and space and practicality was clearly a plus side with this car, not something you would expect from such a small car. The Twingo does take a willing thrashing though, No need to keep changing up and down the gears, one thing i did not expect was the lower revs torque, Uphill in 4th at 35mph was brilliant. Overtook all in its path. With this cars brilliant performance, chic quality styling and afterthoughts overall this is surely a great car for the younger market or a sporty little second car and the price tag for a standard equipment model is very good and plan it on being my next car!!! Smart, Chic and Versatile!
