Renault Twingo Dolce Vita

Renault developed a smart new limited edition version, the Twingo Dolce Vita. The model is very comfortable thanks to its independent sliding rear seats and height-adjustable driver seat. Also it features climate control, electrically-adjustable exterior mirrors and a Bluetooth radio-CD with MP3 playback and USB connectivity which allows occupants to enjoy music stored on personal MP3 payers and permit safe use of mobile phones. The available engines include a 1.2-liter 16V LEV and a dCi 65. The model will be released on September 12 and it will only be available in France. The starting price is EUR11.050, which represents a saving to the customer in comparison with the Trend version of around EUR600. On the inside the model features a bright and cheerful color scheme, including chrome buttons and interior door handles, but also a vanity mirror for the front passenger. Just like the Trend, the Twingo Dolce Vita has manual climate control, electric exterior mirrors and electric front windows, independent sliding rear seats and a lot more. Twingo has topped the small city car market for two years running. The model accounts for one sale in three, an increase of almost 60% over 2008. The equipment list for the French market includes light Maco upholstery, front airbags, power steering, electric body color defrosting exterior mirrors, electric front windows and so on. The specific equipment includes the look package that contains fog-lamps, dynamic bumper and black headlamp masks, Dolce Vita customization package that contains Dolce Vita graphics on the fog-lamp surrounds, door pillars and door handle recesses. The Plug & Music terminal comprises a jack-plug socket and an iPod-compatible USB socket. Playlist information appears on the remote display of the radio and the driver can scroll through files and songs stored on the portable player using the steering wheel-mounted remote control.
