New trims, a new engine and lower prices
31 March 2010

The Renault Twingo range has been revised.

Changes include new trims, a new engine and lower prices and emissions on some models.

The new entry-level trim is called Expression rather than Freeway, and gets new upholstery and a slightly higher list price of £7695.

The Expression model will still be powered by the 59bhp 1.2-litre petrol engine, but the next two models up get a revised version of the 74bhp 1.2 16v engine.

The updated engine emits 119g/km of CO2 – a 16g/km reduction – and averages 55.4mpg, an improvement of almost 12 per cent.

A new trim, I-Music, has also been introduced, replacing Extreme. It is £600 cheaper and gets more kit, including a sports front bumper, aluminium-effect door mirrors and front foglights, and Bluetooth connectivity.

The Dynamique model adds alloy wheels, air-conditioning, sliding and folding rear seats, a height-adjustable driver’s seat and side airbags.

The GT’s engine now emits 132g/km of CO2 – a 6g/km reduction – while its price has dropped by more than £400 to £10,695. This is despite having an upgraded stereo and Bluetooth.

The two Renaultsport models now emit 5g/km less CO2.

The full range is available to order now, with the first deliveries expected in May.

Our Verdict

Renault Twingo 2008-2013

The Renault Twingo is fun, versatile and only slightly flawed. It’s a great effort

Aluminium effect, ahahahaaha.

i go crazy.

Why effect and not real aluminium? lets face it the wing mirrors are hardly going to push the price so high they were forced to look at effect over the real thing.

Other than that these are just mid life updates to keep up with the Jones'

    Fully-loaded, big-hitting diesel CLS shows the potential perils of ticking too many options boxes on your order form. A good car with a bad suspension combination.
