The Twingo's depreciation is roughly on a par with its larger hatchback sibling, the Clio, and slightly below that of the Captur and Kadjar SUVs. It’s also competitive against its class rivals the VW Up and Fiat 500, with only the Hyundai i10 performing better.
The base spec Twingo has one of the cheapest PCP rates in its class, bettered only by the Suzuki Celerio, while low CO2 emissions mean that company car users will benefit from low BIK rates.
Base models come with a DAB radio, Bluetooth, hill start assist, electronic stability control and front electric windows. Play trim adds driver’s seat height adjust and air conditioning. Our favourite trim is Dynamic, which adds 15in alloys, cruise control, front fog lights and a leather-rimmed steering wheel. Range-topping Dynamic S gets external decals, part-leather seats and 16in alloys, while the range-topping GT gets even larger 17in wheels, a twin-exit exhaust and Renault Sport-badged doorsills.
Like the best cars in this class, the Twingo gets six airbags and a tyre pressure-monitoring system as standard. Stability control and emergency brake assist are also fitted to all versions. The Twingo was awarded four out of five stars in its Euro NCAP crash test, and performed well for adult and child safety. An alarm isn’t fitted, but security experts Thatcham awarded the car good scores for its resistance to theft.
