Renault Twingo CC confirmed for 2010

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

The Renault Twingo CC (coupe-cabrio), which was initially showcased as a concept car at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show, was expected to hit production last year. The development of the compact car was hit by one too many delays but the carmaker insists it will be released by the end of 2010.

The carmaker revealed that it's working on a compact convertible due for next year and it's going to be a niche vehicle which aims to be distinct and aims to provide the brand a better image. Of course, this clearly implies that the car will have its own special styling and will not just be a regular variant of the Twingo minicar.

Images show a car that is reminiscent of the 2007 original concept in both proportion and in what can be observed under the guise. Since the concept looks like its near production-ready, it's not all that hard to envisage this car.

It is possible that the new convertible will possibly receive a retractable hard top, since it is patterned after the Twingo hatch, and also a two-seat configuration and drive will come from a 1.2-liter powerplant that can generate 120hp (89kW).

An RS version with a mildly tuned-up version of the same powerplant could also be in the scheme of things for the future.

The car is targeted to rival the Peugeot 207 CC, Opel/Vauxhall Tigra Twin Top and the impending Fiat 500 C. With a likely introduction at the Frankfurt Motor Show this September, details will surely emerge in the succeeding months.
