New renault Twingo gets its debut at Geneva and could be headed Down Under

16 Mar 2007

RENAULT unveiled its new-generation Twingo light car at the Geneva motor show last week, which is a significant new model for the French manufacturer in Europe and, for the first time, right-hand drive international markets.

Renault Australia has told GoAuto that despite the new Twingo’s role of "conquering new markets" the Slovenian-built sub-Clio contender is not (unlike the Campus) under consideration for Australia – for now.

Among the powertrain range is a 75kW 1.2-litre turbocharged engine, in a "GT" version.

Four independent sliding seats allow for a modular interior in the compact (3600mm-long) Twingo, with boot volume ranging from 165 litres to 285 litres with all four seats in place – and extendable to 959 litres with a two-seater layout.

Also unveiled at Geneva was the Clio "Grand Tour" concept, which points to a forthcoming small station wagon, and the 4x2 Scenic "Conquest" – a replacement, of sorts, for the discontinued RX4 SUV.
