May 2010
New Twingo launched

Expression becomes the entry-level version, priced from just £7,695. This replaces the previous Freeway version and comes with new interior upholstery. I-Music replaces the Extreme and features a revised 1.2 16V 75 engine, benefiting from a 16g reduction in CO 2 down to just 119g/km and therefore qualifying for nil vehicle excise duty. Internally, customers will enjoy Bluetooth connectivity and a 4x20W radio/CD with aux input and the distinctive ‘pod’ rev counter. Externally, I-Music is identifiable with its sports front bumper design, brushed aluminium-effect door mirrors and front fog lights. Priced at £8,695, I-Music is better-equipped and yet almost £600 less than the outgoing Extreme.

The GT’s TCe 100 engine is now Euro 5 compliant and benefits from a 6g reduction in CO2 to 132g/km and the 2010 specification now includes an upgraded 4x20W radio/CD with aux input and Bluetooth connectivity. Despite an increase in specification, GT is now priced at £10,695, over £400 less than its predecessor.
