Car leasing news: Renault Twingo picks up city car award

JonathanMarch 17, 2011

The Renault Twingo has been named the best city car by Parker’s at the publication’s New Car Awards 2011.

In the judges’ assessment of the limited-edition Bizu model, the Renualt Twingo was noted for its “frugal” servicing costs and being very cheap to run.

Car leasing¬†customers could be interested to note that the 1.2 litre petrol engine was highlighted as being “very efficient”, providing an average of 55 miles to the gallon.

Parker’s editor Kieren Puffett reports the Twingo is “perfectly suited to driving around town and, thanks to its light steering, is also easy to park and manoeuvre”, adding it is the city car that makes drivers’ cash “go the furthest”.

Remote central locking, front bumper sports styling and Bluetooth are among the features that come as standard on the Bizu version of the Twingo.

However, the Twingo was not the only vehicle to win an award at the inaugural Parker’s award ceremony. The Kia C’eed took the title as overall best car, with the publication claiming that it based its decision on which vehicles were given prizes based on facts, such as service and repairs costs, depreciation and fuel consumption.
