About the Twingo
Typically a four-seated passenger vehicle, the Twingo is a city car manufactured by the French automaker Renault.
Sold onwards from 1992, the Twingo has proved a very popular car during its lifetime and the first models were put on display at the Paris Motor Show.
Although the three-door version is perhaps the more common, Renault has also built a 5 door hatchback and both versions were available in a number of engine variants; petrol’s were offered in a 1.2-liter or 1.6-liter and diesel engines were just 1.5-liter in size producing 85 bhp.
Designer Patrick Le Quement created the Twingo whilst holding the position of Renault’s chief designer with a view to replacing the Renault 4.
Ironically quirky, the Twingo’s first generation only had one trim level with just four colors to choose from, coral red, Indian yellow, coriander green and ultramarine blue.
Just two years after its release, the Twingo underwent a small upgrade, with new colors added to the range and electric windows and mirrors in addition to remote keyless entry.
A second generation had a fairly radical shape change, the lines were more curved with sweeping front headlamps and much chunkier bumpers.
These new models went on to win the ‘best city car award,’ with Jeremey Clarkson test driving it on Top Gear.
Numerous limited editions were released, including the Twingo Miss Sixty, Twingo Pzaz, Twingo Bizu, Twingo Gordini and even the Twingo Renaultsport Silverstone GP.
For customers looking for a less quirky car, there were a number of other city cars to choose from such as; Toyota Yaris, Citroen C2, Smart Fortwo, Abarth 595, Fiat Panda, Renault Clio or the Fiat 500.
Some common fault codes for this vehicle are:
- P0011 – Showing that the intake camshaft is more active than it should be and is altered via the ECM.
- P0300 – Often caused when there is not enough fuel burned, or if there is a faulty spark plug, either of these can result in a misfiring cylinder.
- P0340 – Either the sensor has failed or the wires to the camshaft position sensor are broken, this fault code points to a problem with the camshaft position.
- P0420 – A problem with poor performance from the catalyst system.
- P0136 – Classed as a generic code, there is a problem with the downstream O2 sensor.
