Renault has released new details about the 2014 Twingo, ahead of its debut at the Geneva Motor Show.
Created from a "blank sheet of paper," the redesigned model draws inspiration from the original Twingo and the Renault 5. In particular, Renault says the "rear screen and its prominent shoulders ... are redolent of the rear-engined Renault 5 Turbo that proved so popular with the public in its day."
Besides the retro styling cues, the model has been equipped with a sporty and playful front fascia which has a prominent Renault badge and circular LED daytime running lights. The hatchback also has hidden rear door handles and distinctive taillights that are described as a "natural prolongation of the tailgate."
The Twingo will be offered in four "pop" colors - including light blue, white, yellow and red - and customers can order a variety of customization options including door mirrors, side protective moldings and decals.
Interior pictures won't be released until March 4th but Renault says we can expect a "colorful and cheerful cabin which has been ingeniously thought through to deliver user-friendly, everyday versatility."
The company was also coy on powertrain specifications but confirmed the rear engine layout will deliver impressive agility which will make the model "great fun to drive."
