Competing with the likes of the MINI Cooper and Fiat 500 currently raising the bar on diminutive styling, the Renault Twingo is demonstrating that it has what it takes to stay abreast. Renault will be showcasing the wide-ranging customization possibilities of the Twingo at the upcoming Paris Personalization, Technology and Mechanical Sports (PTS) Show.
Two themed Twingos dubbed Angel and Devil, representing the opposite ends of the customization spectrum, will be the highlight of Renault's display. Both cars will come with 17-inch wheels and brake calipers that are paint finished.
External paint finish will be contrasting in the two cars while including matte and satin color blocks that highlight the Twingo's lines. The Angel version will come in pearlescent white with black and red trim, while the Devil comes in glossy black with satin red and bare-metal trim.
Further personalization to be displayed at the PTS includes more than 45 freestyle graphics, body-color hubcaps, bespoke mirror shrouds, B-pillar trim and fog light moldings and other trim elements.
Numerous graphic themes are also available such as "La Parisienne," "Eiffel," "Boomerang," "Rainbow" and "Checkerboard." The cars will be on display at Villepinte from February 19-22.
The new Renault Twingo is able to deliver class-leading performance and fuel efficiency, thanks to its 100 hp new TCE (Turbo Control Efficiency) petrol engine and a chassis derived from the B-segment.
Twingo could also be availed with 1.5 dCi diesel engine. Aside from offering performance that is a level higher than its predecessor, the new Renault Twingo is targeting a broader market that extends beyond international borders.
To achieve such a feat, the Renault Twingo is now being offered in different versions, including the GT version and right-hand drive models for the United Kingdom. With a length of just 3.6 meters, the Twingo definitely has compact dimensions.
However, by fully optimizing this length, Renault was able make as much room inside. Moreover, the Twingo features a modular interior with the adoption of four independent sliding seats. Even when all four seats are used, the new Renault still boasts of offering the best-in-segment cargo space of between 165 liters and 285 liters (VDA).
A two-seat layout allows the Twingo to offer up to 959 liters of cargo capacity. Furthermore, the vehicle could accommodate loads of up to 2.15 meters in length if the front passenger seatback is tipped forward.
