Most of the changes over the pre-facelift Twingo are visual. The front end has been revised, with the daytime running lights integrated into the headlights, and more painted areas on the bumper. Around the rear, there’s a new pair of C-shaped taillights, along with a re-positioned hatch release handle and a 10mm lower ride height.

Inside, the facelifted Twingo receives a redesigned centre console, with an adjustable cup holder, two USB-A ports, one 3.5mm audio jack and new buttons for auto stop/start and cruise control. More significantly, there’s a new 7.0-inch infotainment touchscreens on higher grade models, equipped with Renault Easy Connect, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The Twingo’s powertrain range has also been refreshed with the addition of the ‘SCe 75’, a 1.0-litre naturally aspirated three-cylinder petrol producing 55kW of power and 95Nm of torque. The 69kW/135Nm 0.9-litre turbo triple carries over from the pre-facelift variant, in addition to a 48kW version of the 1.0-litre NA unit.

The new Renault Twingo will make its public debut at the Geneva motor show in March, followed by a European launch later in 2019.
