Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Front space is actually pretty decent, so even if you’re tall you’re unlikely to struggle for head, leg or elbow room. You’ll probably find the pedal area a bit cramped if you’re shod with anything bigger than size eights, though.

How much space there is in the back depends how tall the driver is, but an average-sized adult should fit by splaying his or her legs either side of the front seat. Alternatively, the Twizy Cargo replaces the rear seat with a 180-litre boot for extra luggage-lugging ability. The maximum payload is a reasonable 75kg.

The standard Twizy has a meagre 31 litres of luggage space (under the rear seat), plus a pair of modest gloveboxes. Renault would argue, of course, that this is much better than the storage space in most mopeds.

The gloveboxes and under-seat compartments are lockable, but the lids are rather flimsy, so we wouldn’t leave anything valuable inside.
