Renault Twingo – A segment car produced by Renault since 1993. Quickly became popular in Europe because of its unusual appearance and ease of use. Currently produced a second generation of the vehicle.
Renault Twingo I debuted in 1993. The car was designed by Patrick Le Quément (chief designer of Renault) – it is easy to discern in it similarities to the Polish car FSM Beskid, which is not entirely unfounded, because the design of this model with assumptions were used to model the patent Polish Beskid, and introduction – finished vehicle already – on the market waited for the expiry of the patent FSM.
Despite the popularity of the car company Renault have decided not to produce a version with the steering wheel on the right side, losing many customers mainly in the UK (the largest export market Renault). Twingo was initially produced with the engine C3G, characterized by, among others, power of 55hp, eight valves and timing chain. From mid-1996 began to assemble a car based on a newer engine design – D7F (60hp, 8 valves), and since 2001 the newer D4F engine (75hp, 16-valve). In 1994-1995, slightly modified car. In 1998, the car undergoes a second facelift.
The car can be equipped with an air bag driver and passenger, power windows and mirrors, rolldach, air conditioning, central locking, ABS and power steering.

Changed the rear view mirror, upholstery designs and caps. In 2012, we conducted a thorough facelift. Modified front fascia of the vehicle.

The third generation of the Fortwo will be technically related to a Twingo, and the addition to the range of the German manufacturer will present the twin terms Twingo successor to the Forfour.
The third generation of the vehicle is different compared to its predecessors – the first time in the history of the model was decided on the five-door body, rear-wheel drive and on the back of the engine.
The car was built on the new floor plate designed to meet the engine mounted over the rear axle of the vehicle and drive to the rear wheels, allowing the vehicle to be more maneuverable.
