Renault's third generation Twingo might look like a conventional citycar but under the skin, it offers a very different approach the whole business of urban mobility. The decision to mount its engine at the rear made this model almost unique in this segment, freeing up extra interior space and making the car brilliantly nippy in crowded city streets. If that's just what you're after in an affordable little used runabout, it's well worth a look.
Here was another example of Renault once again being willing to do things a little differently. This company has often been at its best when it tears up the rulebook. It did that way back in 1993 in creating the original Twingo model and again did so here with that car's appealing third generation successor. The almost unique selling point in this case, the rear wheel drive layout, ought to be just another engineering solution, though a very intriguing one. In practice though, it's more than that, conferring upon this car a different feel and giving it a more individual character you can then further personalise to your heart's content.
That specialness - that individuality - is something you'll enjoy every day in ownership of this Renault. When marvelling at how easy it is to see out of: how simple it is to park: and how tightly it can turn. In other words, it's about more than just stickers and colour co-ordination. The technology's supremely user-friendly too, smartphone-savvy right across the range. And in summary? Well it's true that some other citycar rivals from this period might be cheaper, slightly more efficient or a little better built. But try any one of them after living with a Twingo and you might well find the ownership proposition a little. mundane and conventional. Isn't life too short for that? If you think that it is and you're shopping in this segment, then here's a great place to start.
