The Renault Twingo is back and this time Renault has tried to shake up the city car market. The latest version of the French firm's smallest model (excluding the electric Twizy) features a rear-engined, rear-wheel drive layout. 

This means the Twingo is extremely manoeuvrable in town with a tight turning circle that's ideal for those needing to dart around town and get in and out of tight parking spots, plus the wheel-at-each-corner layout has enabled Renault to make the most of the interior space in the Twingo.

There's a choice of turbocharged 3-cylinder petrol engine or naturally-aspirated 1.0-litre unit, both of which return decent fuel economy. They're nippy enough in the city, but out on the road the Twingo feels out of its depth when compared to the more grown up feel of the VW up! or SEAT Mii.

Style-wise, the Twingo is suitably quirky to look at, with plenty of colour and wheel combinations and optional decal packs which increase the ability to personalise the car. There are distinctive LED running lights at the front and Renault's latest face which combine to make the Twingo a truly distinctive proposition when compared with more plain-looking rivals like the Skoda Citigo andHyundai i10.

The Twingo is slightly more expensive than its closest rivals, but it comes with plenty of kit as standard.
