Prices revealed for diminutive new Renault city car; on sale September
20 June 2007

Renault's diminutive new Twingo will start at a relatively diminutive £8375 when it finally arrives in the UK in Spetember.That means the base Twingo will cost more than the poshest Smart ForTwo, and more than any of the Citroen C1/Peugeot 107/Toyota Aygo triplets.However, the base 1.2-litre 74bhp Twingo Dynamique undercuts the Citroen C2 1.4 (also with 74bhp) by £740 and the Fiat Panda 1.4 by £520.Only two varieties of Twingo will be available in the UK, the 1.2 Dynamique and the GT 100, which will cost £9995 – bang on the power and price of the Fiat Panda 100HP.The Dynamique gets 15-inch alloys, foglights and a CD radio; the GT adds air-con, sports suspension and dark-tinted rear windows.Renault's trumpeting the Twingo's frugality and fun. The Dynamique claims a combined economy of 49.5mpg and CO2 outputs of 135g/km, and the GT 47.8 and 140g/km. Find out what it's like behind the wheel here.

Our Verdict

Renault Twingo 2008-2013

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

    The Volvo V90 is a big estate ploughing its own furrow. We’re about to see if it is refreshing or misguided

    Handsome entrant into the bulging small crossover market has a strong engine and agile handling, but isn’t as comfortable or complete as rivals
