Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 42 - 42 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Renault's junior hot hatch won't break the bank in terms of running costs. An insurance group rating of eight means it should be affordable for most and thanks to decent emissions, road tax will be reasonable. It's pretty economical too - averaging 40mpg.

Thanks to a modest output from it's 1.6-litre engine the Twingo emits 165g/km of CO2 - not bad for a sporty hatchback.

This is an area Renault is committed to improving, and the Twingo should be one of the first models where we can expect to see results of the company's hard work. The Renaultsport involvement should further enhance durability.
