Trim levels consist of entry-level Expression, mid-spec Play, Dynamique and flagship Dynamique S, while the GT model gets its own trim alongside its exclusive engine.
Opt for an Expression trimmed Twingo and you'll find 15in steel wheels, LED day-running-lights and hill start assist on the outside as standard, while inside there is Bluetooth, USB connectivity, a smartphone cradle and front electric windows.
Upgrade to Play and luxuries such as air conditioning and a height adjustable driver's seat is added to the package, while the Dynamique models gain cruise control, front foglights, 15in alloy wheels, and electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors.
Topping the standard Twingo range is the Dynamique S trim which adorns the Twingo with 16in alloys, a sporty-looking bodykit, a part leather upholstery and orange interior details, while the RenaultSport tweaked GT model includes, 17in alloys, a beefier bodykit inclusive of a rear diffuser, twin chrome exhaust system, and sports-tuned chassis and suspension as standard. Inside there is automatic lights and wipers, climate control and tinted rear windows thrown in.
The Twingo’s cabin has plenty of colour and visual interest, as well as some novel storage solutions, but there’s a bit of sleight of hand going on in here: eye-catching features intended to cover up for a cabin that isn’t as practical as it should be.
The driving position is sound, but you don’t get the reach adjustment on entry-level models, and neither do you get ISOFIX child seat anchorages for the front seat as standard, which could be an issue for parents with child seats that are too bulky for the back. Adding ISOFIX points to the front requires that you opt for the 'Seats pack', which also adds front seat heating.
There’s decent room for your extremities up front but headroom in the back is poor. Most adults will struggle with only 860mm of it. An Up gives you 920mm and most family-sized cars at least 950mm.
Up front, we like the pragmatic universal mounting clip for a smartphone, which fits neatly into the centre of the audio control console. Less impressive is the gimmicky storage box, which doesn’t fit so neatly into its dock ahead of the gearlever and sticks out sufficiently proud of the fascia to foul your left leg. There’s a pair of cupholders underneath it, but they’re small and shallow.
