Renault Twingo GT (2017) review

New review from Car Magazine:

This is pretty much as hot as the current rear-engined Renault Twingo is going to get. There won’t be a full-fat RS version – predominantly because a larger, more powerful engine simply won’t fit – so this GT version, mildly microwaved by Renault Sport’s engineers, represents the high watermark for current-era Twingo performance.

Apart from a shiny set of 17-inch alloys and optional go-slightly-faster decals, the main outward clue to the 898cc turbo engine’s 20bhp power hike (up to a cap-tip-worthy 108bhp) is a mini air intake above the left rear wheelarch, feeding cold air to the faster-spinning turbo, aided and abetted by upgraded water- and fuel pumps. A freer-breathing twin-tipped exhaust system helps, and manages a pleasantly bassy note.

Appears not to sacrifice the economy according to the official figures, sounds ideal for buyers who are merely looking for a reasonably enjoyable drive in a city but without paying out a fortune.

Yeah running costs seem fine and something I would be willing to run, trouble is it's quite expensive to buy in the first place.
