The Twingo turns 20

As you can remember, not long ago, French carmaker Renault released a video including images of their new Twingo city car. Now, they have released a photo gallery for all its fans and enthusiasts. The reason for all this attention is refers to the fact that the Twingo celebrates 20 years of existence. We had the chance to see the new model back in 1989. Back then the project belonged to Yves Dubreil which was asked to present a small, but practical car, which in the same time it was economical and comfortable. His hope was not to compete with the Clio. The entire process lasted for three years after which the carmaker managed to release it for everyone to see at the Paris Motor Show. The production of the first Twingo started in 1993. As expected, the model was a success thanks to its shape, its face, the interesting interior and the introduction of the sliding rear seats. The French carmaker managed to sell more than 2 million Twingos since 1993 and until 2007 when the model has been discontinued. There was nothing complicated on the model as it has been sold in a single version. Under the hood it had a 1.2-liter engine capable of generating 55 horsepower and just one interior trim level which was used mainly to power the windows. There were two characteristics of the model that made it even more special and that is a folding canvas roof and climate control. The available colors for the customers to choose from were Coral Red, Outremer Blue, Indien Yellow and Coriandre Green. We hope you will enjoy the photo gallery we have prepared.
