Other Renault Twingo (2007 - 2014) models:

  • Summary

    2 out of 5 2.0

    What does this car say about you?

    You are after cheap motoring.

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    Didn't care to be honest.

    No. This was my second new Renault but I would never buy another due to the shoddy dealership.

    Skoda Fabia.

  • Buying experience

    1 out of 5 1.0

    Type of dealer you bought from?


    Did you buy this car new?


    What price did you pay?


    When did you buy the car?

    March 2011

    Did you get a good deal and why?

    No discount off list price due to it being a discounted special edition.

    Is there any special reason why you bought this car?

    What was the dealer like?

    Hopeless. It was obvious when I turned up to collect the car that the salesman had forgotten I was coming, hence it took him 20 minutes to fetch the car from the back of the garage and find the paperwork. On inspection there was an obvious paintwork defect that should have been picked up and rectified before the day of sale. Total incompetence from beginning to end. Not surprisingly the dealership was closed six months after I bought it.

  • Driving it

    3 out of 5 3.0

    What's it like to drive?

    Handled quite well but ride quality was poor. Reasonably quick. Clunky gearchange.

    What's it like to park?

    Easy due to its size.

  • Living with it

    3 out of 5 3.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    To be fair no problems in the 3 years I owned it.

    What's most practical about your car?

    Decent size boot for a city car.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    Basic spec but it did have Bluetooth connection which many more expensive cars did not have at the time I bought it.
