2014 Renault Twingo Gets A “Unisex” Facelift

In hopes to give dwindling Twingo sales a boost, Renault has given the compact car a facelift for its 2014 iteration.

Brief: The next-generation Renault Twingo will launch in Q1 2014 and boast both a more unisex front fascia as well as a new 1.5-litre diesel engine. Pricing will start at 7,990 euros in France.

The facelift expresses Renault’s new brand styling and is intended to make it more unisex given that the current generation Twingo appeals more to female and city-based drivers.

“The Twingo was criticized for having a slightly boring design so we wanted to reinvigorate sales of this car by making its look a lot more dynamic and original,” Yves-Eric Morel, Renault’s Twingo program director said. Given how competitive the small car segment is, Renault’s “aim was to reinforce the fun, colorful and friendly character of Twingo.”

The Renault Twingo is current the third best selling minicar in Europe right behind the Fiat Panda and Fiat 500. In addition to the makeover, the 2014 Renault Twingo will come with a new 1.5-litre diesel engine with fuel ratings of 3.4 litres per 100km.
