Renault Chief Operating Officer Carlos Tavares has revealed some new details about the 2015 Twingo.

Speaking to Automotive News, Tavares said the model has "huge potential" because it will be geared towards male drivers and offered exclusively as a five-door hatchback. Tavares also acknowledged the car will offer a variety of personalization options to better compete with the Fiat 500 and Opel / Vauxhall Adam.

The change to a rear-wheel drive platform will also enable the model to have a "relatively large cabin for [such] a short length." This should help to increase sales as the current Twingo can be a little cramped, especially in the rear.

The 2015 Twingo was recently previewed by the Twin'Run concept and is expected to be launched late next year.
