Renault will show off its third generation Twingo at the Geneva Motor Show in March. "Positioning the engine at the rear is a significant plus for a small city car since it frees up the front end and considerably improves the turning circle. Indeed, New Twingo is surprisingly manoeuvrable in built-up areas and parking calls for only a few turns of the steering wheel," states the French firm.
"Combined with the use of a smaller block and the positioning of the wheels at the car’s extreme corners, the rear-mounted engine also frees up extra cabin space, while New Twingo also boasts the sort of wheelbase and roomy interior more generally associated with models in the next segment up," Renault added in the press statement.
“New Renault Twingo was inspired not only by the original Twingo, but also by the Renault 5," said Renault's design boss, Laurens van den Acker. "It is a modern take on the city car genre with the accent on innovation in terms of its lines and architecture. New Twingo is a fun, playful and vibrant city car."
Further details about the Twingo will be shared at the Geneva motor show next month.
