Renault Twingo is a small modern city car of very original design. Appeared in 1992 and captured the hearts of many Europeans. One-volume body, funny "face" with pop-eyed headlights, two wide side doors, motley seat upholstery, colored levers and buttons, digital devices in the center of the front panel, stepless variator - all this was new. Small dimensions are ideal in the city, but also on the Twingo highway shows good results (accelerating to 150 km / h). The body of the first generation has good corrosion protection and is characterized by a long service life of the paintwork. You can also note the good stability of the car on the road and flexible suspension.

The interior is simple and concise. A large glass area creates good illumination, due to which the interior looks bright and comfortable. From a practical point of view, a very folding rear seat backrest. At first, Renault Twingo was equipped with a 1.2-liter engine producing 55 hp. and manual transmission.

However, at the end of 1994, versions of Twingo Easy appeared, equipped with a manual transmission with automatic clutch - to change from one speed to another, it was not necessary to squeeze the clutch pedal. And the next year, Twingo began to equip and conventional automatic transmission. In 1996, a new 1.1-liter engine with 8 valves was installed under the hood of Twingo. In 1998, the car was slightly upgraded - new bumpers with a painted lower part, fog lights, and also expanded the basic equipment, which now includes ABS.

One "but" - to get into the back seat even through a wide doorway was not very convenient, in addition, to close the parking lot to open the big door was a problem. This prompted Renault to release a five-door version. In addition, for 12 years of release Twingo was not subjected to any changes, so original and unlike any other car, including the Renault brand, it came out. But the management of the company came out for the unity of the corporate style. In the fall of 2004, the French company introduced an updated version of Twingo. But the new Twingo did not appear alone.
