Review: Renault Twingo Renaultsport (2008 – 2012)


Great fun to drive, peppy 1.6-litre with 133PS, affordable for a sporty small hatchback.

Very hard ride with Cup chassis, noisy at speed, unrefined.

I am hoping to invest in a used car when Im 19 as I have a big drop in insurance. I was wondering what the fastest car I can get hold of for my age with the cheapest insurance? I'm 19. Has to be no more than insurance group 10 (old insurance groups). I was thinking about a Renault Twingo GT - 100bhp, 0-60 less than 10 seconds, sporty looks, insurance group 5!
