Renault has taken the wraps off its third generation Twingo, ahead of its world premiere at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show next month.
The French automaker is looking to tear up the traditional city car blueprint with its new car, with the Twingo taking on a new five-seat, four-door, rear-engined and rear-wheel drive layout.
According to Renault, “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.”
“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”
At this time, Renault has not issued anything in regards to the car’s dimensions, powertrains or information of the interior but the company did mentioned that the new Twingo was inspired by the original Twingo and the Renault 5.
The new Twingo will be offered in four colour choices including light blue, white, yellow and red. There are also personalisation options for the exterior trim including door mirrors, side protective moldings and decals.
More details about the Twingo will be revealed at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show so stay close!
