The Renault Twingo is at the end of the career.
After a recent car concept an all-new Twingo II is scheduled to appear in 2007,as a completely new car.
The French city car hides under the X44 code.
Compared to the current model, it grows, becomes more powerful but should remain with the price.
The car will have to replace the previous Twingo, who has been taking from the market after already 13 years,and approximately two million cars built.
The Twingo has been on the market since 1993 with just one restyling in 1998.
The new mini appears to adapt the characteristic styling of the bigger Scenic and Grand Scenic.
The motorizations of the model are possibly these: gasoline 1,2 -60bhp, 1,2 16 valves- 75bhp, 1,2 16 valves-100 horses and a 1,5 dCi with 70 bhp.
The main problem for the Twingo was the new arrivals Citroen C1 end Peugeot 107 which smashed the sales for the Renault.From 204 000 specimens sold in 2000, to less than 90 000 last year!
This is why, Renault makes efforts to present as sooner as possible a Twingo completely transformed.
The new one should take as a starting point the concept "Zoe" presented by Renault to Geneva in March 2005,and the Twingo Concept form the Paris Motor Show.
A slightly improvement on the interior space and more atention to the safety devices should enable him to make progress the sales.
But also, Renault counts on the price of its car, which should be proposed with 8 900 euros for the basic model.
Renault will build its Twingo in the East,making economies in all the stages of production
