Certain elements of the Twingo’s interior look and feel pretty good, such as the attractive gloss plastics around the dashboard, but there are some poorly damped switches and scratchy plastics towards knee level that bring the overall quality of the cabin down.
Ergonomically, the Twingo also has some basic flaws in its cabin design. The seat is mounted too high for tall drivers, who will catch their knees on the steering wheel, and there’s no clutch footrest. In addition, the steering wheel only adjusts for height and not reach.
Specification wise, entry-level versions are sparsely equipped, so we’d go for mid-spec Play trim. This comes with air-conditioning and a height-adjustable driver’s seat, although alloy wheels will still cost you extra. Using the free R&Go app, you can turn your smartphone into a touchscreen sat-nav system; the excellent R-link integrated touchscreen set-up is a pricey optional extra. Dynamique models also come with some desirable kit such as cruise control, but they’re relatively expensive.
