Hope to god this is a good car, it will do wonders for Renault. Shame there will be no RS version though.

Dimensions look quite smart and the interior looks to be completely different which is great news.

Now that looks the size of a Mk2 Clio - a little taller but similar foot print.
Don't think they sold enough RS Twingos' last time around to warrant a new RS version - unless.........

Didn't know that... Big thumbs down! Disapprove Confused

I was counting on the fact that if Renault ends up having an EDC-only next Megane RS, at least there will be Twingo RS you can buy and have some fun. I guess that idea goes down the drain.

I'm starting to feel really worried about where Renault Sport is going...

too bad no 3 door, anyway, wonder how will the headlight and taillights, trim etc look now that renault is trying to save every penny.

And how will it compare to the vw up / seat mii / skoda citigo as this group will be its main competitors...

Is it scheduled to be shown in Geneva 2014 ?
