Auto Trader Verdict:
There’s no doubting the Twingo GT has more than its fair share of cheeky urban ‘chic’, but we could say the same about the standard Twingo. Anyone hoping the GT would usher in some much needed thrills and banish the original car’s wholly unsatisfying driving manners, will be sadly disappointed. It’s an improvement over the standard car (that wouldn’t be difficult), but we had hoped for so much more. If the combined brains and engineering expertise of Renault’s hot hatch specialist can’t achieve more, then it leaves us to conclude that the properties of the donor car prohibit any significant degree of silky quality from being applied. Factor in the £13,755 asking price, and we’d be looking at any number of better driving and more practical city cars. Volkswagen Up anyone?
