It's the size of a Honda Fit or a Toyota Yaris, but it's European at heart and has more style and power than its Japanese competitors. Meet the Twingo Renaultsport 133. It's unfortunate the US won't be seeing the Twingo in the near future, but this high performance compact sets a high mark for micro car enthusiasts.

Its proportions and styling echo the original Twingo concept car which debuted at the `06 Paris Motor Show. Twingo's distinctive looks have been made more incisive on the new flagship Renaultsport version thanks to wider front and rear wings, sculpted side skirts and an aerodynamic spoiler which all point to the car's sporting character. Inside, the cabin has been tailored for focused sports driving, with a number of exclusive details such as Renaultsport seats featuring enhanced lateral support, aluminum pedals and a leather steering wheel.

The enjoyable handling of Twingo Renaultsport 133 combines driving enjoyment, performance and impeccable safety. The two Renaultsport chassis settings available feature wider front and rear tracks than lesser models. The standard ESP can be manually deactivated, ensuring the car is easy to use on a day-to-day basis while maintaining its sporty credentials.

Twingo Renaultsport 133 is powered by a normally-aspirated 1.6 liter 16V engine developed by Renault Sport Technologies. The engine delivers 133hp at 6,750rpm with 118 lb-ft of torque at 4,400rpm. A four-into-one exhaust strikes the perfect balance between acoustics, performance and emissions.
