The Renault Twingo Hatchback is a very affordable little car. It is a very likeable, with a ton of funky character. Some might say it's one of the cutest cars on the road, but not so cute that guy can't find himself comfortable in it. It is surprisingly spacious in the cabin yet it is small enough to maneuver into nearly any size parking space. It would be easy to drive the Twingo in cities with narrow laneways and awkward parking spots. Renault introduced the Twingo as a small car for city drivers. More and more people are looking at affordable solutions as our world's economy is in the battered state that it is in. Today's cars must be economical, good for the environment and very affordable. Consumers will not tolerate anything less. This is exactly what the Renault Twingo Hatchback has to offer. It boasts extremely low emissions and can return an average of 55.4 mpg. That is unbelievable fuel-economy.

The Twingo is the successor to the Renault 5 from the 1980's era, which was a small boxlike economy car. Thousands of Renault 5's were sold. They were a good solid car, well-known for their reliability. The same type of reliability and long-lasting performance is expected from the Twingo. That being said, it does not look like its predecessor in any way. The Renault 5 was boxy looking; the Twingo is sleek, modern and full of funky attitude. It is even available in 10 mouthwatering colors so there is something for everyone.

The Dynamique and Renaultsport 133 are the two trims available for the latest Twingo Hatchback. While they both boast the same engine and safety features, they are quite different when it comes to standard features. Speaking of safety, drivers will appreciate a list of them, including airbags in the right places and a system that allows for hands-free operation of cellphones, etc.

The Renault Twingo handles the road very well. It is a little bit on the noisy side when you get it to substantial speed on the highway though. However, that is because there is no insulation for the sound. This was done to reduce the weight of it. Most people driving the Twingo will use it primarily for inner-city driving anyway. The steering offers a good grip on the road and handles corners like a dream, against thanks to the weight.
