Renault Twingo GT UK review

This Twingo GT is a quirky and quick alternative in the city car class and a welcome addition to the segment - even if it does lean more towards harmless city car runaround rather than hardened enthusiastís plaything.

Against the slower, less practical and extremely pricey Smart Brabus ForFour, the Twingo GT looks a bargain. Against the cheaper, slightly slower but better to drive Volkswagen Up, however, the Twingo GT is harder to recommend. If you want a warm city runaround then it would also be worth stretching your budget (for less than £1000 extra) to a Suzuki Swift Sport, or a little bit more to a Ford Fiesta ST-Line with a characterful 1.0-litre Ecoboost engine. Plus, the Up GTi which is slated for a 2018 promises a lot judging from our early prototype drive, so competition is set to get even tougher.

The bottom line is, while the Twingo GT is a likeable city car, it doesn't offer the impressive warm hatch driving dynamics that many of its rivals do.
