In production guise the Twingo will slot in below the Clio. The new concept is powered by a turbocharged 1.2 16V engine and boasts a host of multimedia features. Power output for this engine is 73 kW while torque is 145 Nm.

This city car is only 3.6 meters long and features a sporty design. Riding on 17-inch, dark chrome wheels picked out in Renault yellow, the Twingo concept communicates a punchy, dynamic feel.

The profiled sills and wing extensions emphasize its sporty lines and athletic curves.

At the rear, the chromed twin exhaust tailpipe and air extractor take their inspiration from Clio Renault Sport, and the new Renault badge nestles on the wide hatch, the lower part of which is flanked by "high-tech" rear lights.

According to Renault the Twingo concept features a USB port as well as sockets for devices like Apple's iPod and the Nokia Smartphone. There is even a mixing deck built into the dashboard.
