Renault has lifted the covers off the Twingo's interior and provided more details about the car's engine at the Geneva Motor Show.
Renault says the Twingo offers a bigger cabin than what would be anticipated of a car with an overall length of just 3.59 meters (141.3 inches), a width of 1.64 m (64.5 in) and a height of 1.55 m (61 in).
The new Twingo has a 219-liter (7.7 cu-ft) boot and a 50/50-split rear bench and it folds to reveal a flat boot floor of 1.35 meters in length.
