Renault Twingo gets a facelift, due for Frankfurt Motor Show in September
French car manufacturer Renault has unveiled the newly refreshed Renault Twingo which also gives you a hint of a new paradigm of design for the car brand. The compact Twingo is expected to have its official unveiling at the upcoming motor show in Frankfurt in September this year. The carmaker implements midcycle improvements before a total redesign for 2013.
The facelift gives the Renault Twingo gives the compact car a more open and rounder grill compared to the last release. It also gets an enlarged badge of Renault. The information about the Twingo is very limited. We are pretty sure we will get more details as to its pricing and the engine that it will be using prior to the release of this city car.
The Renault Twingo is being produced in Slovenia and is marketed across Europe. According to some reports, the Twingo might be replaced by another compact vehicle that will have a rear wheel drive configuration in two years time. The said new Renault compact will share a platform with Daimler Smart passenger vehicle that can carry four individuals.
The man responsible for the redesign is Lauren van den Acker who is design chief of Renault. He has been spearheading the evolution of the Renault car design since taking the post last year. The newly designed vehicles by van den Acker though will only roll out the market starting 2012.
The Renault Twingo will hit the market later this year.
