Renault’s Twingo was first launched back in 1992, and its third generation debuted in 2014. The French manufacturer chose the name for this compact city car as a portmanteau of three popular dances – the twist, swing, and tango – and this light-on-its-feet branding is reflected in its easy manoeuvrability and its cute, charming design. Ideal for city driving, the Twingo is also surprisingly spacious for such a small vehicle. Buyers on a budget will love how much personality the car packs in at an affordable price point.
