Which used Renault Twingo hatchback should I buy?

The range starts with Expression. This gets the basics and nothing more: daytime running lights, a DAB radio, Bluetooth, hill start assist, electronic stability control, remote central locking and front electric windows.

Play adds to this with driver’s seat height adjustment, air conditioning and 15in alloy wheels.

Our favourite trim is Dynamique, because this adds cruise control, front foglights and a leather steering wheel.

Dynamique S goes even further upmarket by fitting part leather seats, 16in diamond-cut alloy wheels, aluminium pedals and stripes for the grille, doors and door mirrors in red, white or blue.

The top-of-the-range GT comes with 17in alloy wheels, twin exhausts, doorsills with Renault Sport written on them and, to top it all off, a metal gearknob. GT cars are only worth seeking out if you really want the more powerful 108bhp 0.9-litre engine.

The entry-level 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine produces a mere 69bhp. This means that if you want to get the best from it, you’ll need to rev it hard. If you do go for this, we’d suggest that you find the stop/start (S&S) version, because it offers lower emissions and cheaper running costs.

There's also a turbocharged 0.9-litre engine with 89bhp that is much more usable when venturing out of town. The downside is that it costs more to buy and isn’t anymore efficient than the standard 1.0-litre engine.

Then there's the 108bhp version in the GT, but that's only worth it if you really want the most powerful Twingo. But, because it isn’t that much fun to drive and it costs more to buy, we cannot recommend this engine unless you can find a really good deal on it.
