How does the Renault Twingo stand out on the city car market
Today we are looking into the city car market once again with a brand new review. The car that we have chosen to focus our attention on today is the Renault Twingo which was first put on sale in 1992. There have since been three different versions of the car go on sale with the latest model arriving in 2014. Today this latest third generation model is the version we are casting our attention to. The Twingo in our opinion is one of the most customisable vehicles that Renault have on offer and it is available in many different combinations of looks and multiple trim levels are also up for the taking offering more and more equipment at each step up. Engine wise the car boasts two petrols with one producing 70 brake horse power and you alternative being the turbocharged option delivering 90 brake horse power. As you may expect from a city car, the Twingo is quite compact and not exactly the largest vehicle on the market but what it lacks in size, it certainly makes up for with some good options trim level wise.
What different kit do the trim levels offer?
So now focusing our attention on trim levels, there are a total of four options available to you. First up in the list though is the entry level Expression range. This gives a generous amount of standard kit out with some cool features including halogen headlights,a DAB digital radio, Emergency braking assistance,central locking and electric windows. There are more items up for grabs but these were just some of our personal favourites. Further down the line now and next up is the Play model. The same added equipment from the Expression come along with this range but we also now see air conditioning, two tone wheel trims in Black and a height adjustable drivers seat is also brought into play.
Dynamique models however start bringing some great gadgets into play. Stop-start technology, cruise control,a lane departure warning system,a leather gear stick and steering wheel,heated door mirrors and chrome inserts for the exterior design of the car also come into play. Now last but by certainly no means least is the Dynamique S. This range topper adds in partial leather seating,accelerator and brake pedals made from aluminium,leather arm rests and sixteen inch alloy wheels are just some of our personal highlights for the Dynamique S model.
What cars rival the Renault Twingo?
So when we look at the kind of competition that the Twingo has to face,the Aygo from Toyota and the Yaris range bring a good source of competition as does the Suzuki Swift. Prices on the Twingo range also get underway from £9,495.
