Variable Gear Ratio Steering

The Twingo in mid trim and up will come with variable ratio steering, in the middle of the rack the teeth are closer, which means the wheel is less sensitive when its close or at center. THe beauty of this system is it helps to eliminate oversteer, something which may come in handfuls with the rear engine layout...

The TCe 90-powered Twingo in Dynamique specification also gets variable gear ratio steering, which Renault says makes the car "more agile and reactive at lower speeds". A Sport pack is also available and adds 16-inch alloy wheels, red and black upholstery inside and red exterior trim accents.

I feel like this is something that I can't really understand until I experience it first hand. Oversteer is bad though, so if it is getting rid of that I see it as a good thing.

It seems like it's just a more responsive vehicle at lower speeds, as in more power, higher RPM's and all that fun stuff.
