The new Renault Twingo has gone on sale, with prices starting from £9495.
Revealed at the Geneva motor show earlier this year, the third-generation Twingo takes on a new rear-engined, rear-wheel drive layout, and comes with a choice of two petrol engines at launch.
The first engine is a turbocharged three-cylinder 0.9-litre Dynamique TCe 90, which develops 89bhp and 100lb ft of torque. The 0-62mph sprint is covered in 10.8 seconds and the top speed is 103mph. Fuel economy is a claimed 66mpg on the combined cycle and CO2 emissions are 99g/km.
Also available is a new naturally aspirated three-cylinder 1.0-litre SCe. It develops less power and torque than the TCe, with 69bhp and 91lb ft, while 62mph is reached in 14.5 seconds. This version of the Twingo has a top speed of 94mph.
The new Twingo is available in three trim levels, called Expression, Play and Dynamique. Expression and Play models get Renault's new R and Go docking system, which links a user's mobile phone to the car to provide navigation, infotainment serves and trip computer functions via the use of an app.
Standard equipment includes a rear spoiler, 15-inch wheels, electric power steering, electric front windows, split folding rear bench and remote central locking as well as ESC, hill start assist and emergency braking systems.
Mid-level Play models add air conditioning, a height-adjustable driver's seat and steering wheel and new black wheel accents.
The top-spec Dynamique variant gets 15-inch alloy wheels, front fog lights, cruise control, a start-stop system, leather trim for the steering wheel and gear knob, and rear door bins.
