Top Gear has named the new Renault Twingo as their 'City car of the year' at the annual TopGear Magazine awards, after Richard Hammond predicted it could be car of the year back in September.
Ken Ramirez, Managing Director, Renault UK, commented: "All-New Twingo represents a bold innovation in the city car category with its clever rear-engined layout. We were always confident that our latest Twingo would prove to be a hit so I am delighted to know that the experts at TopGear Magazine agree. 'City Car of the Year' is a fantastic accolade and one that everyone at Renault is very proud of."
Sam Philip, Senior Writer, BBC TopGear Magazine commented on the decision to give the award to the Twingo: "This is a masterwork of packaging, that knotty art of carving a large amount of space from within a very small wheelbase. The Twingo should be celebrated for what it is: a car that does the business of being a city car better than anything else out there."
The All-New Twingo has been available at Charles Hurst Renault in Belfast, Newtownards, Newtownabbey and Chimney Corner since September and has won praise for its stylish design, clever packaging and innovative rear engine, rear-wheel drive layout. This is the third Twingo model and is available from £9,495 at Charles Hurst. For More Info on our Twingo Offer Click Here.
