FirstDrive: Renault Twingo Renaultsport 133 Cup – Verdict

Old fashioned fun. Don’t focus on the outright performance from the engine and just look for corners! The ride on the Cup chassis might be a disaster on your daily roads, but it’s fine if this is your first access into warm hatch territory. Screw it, start out by bouncing around in this and every other car you subsequently have will be smooth hereafter!

It’s by no means perfect anywhere else, but this 133 makes me glad they decided to ship these over to the UK this time round. At least the Twingo isn’t just a novelty sighting when on holiday in Europe any more.

Remember these?
Remember these?

I can’t shake the Suzuki Swift Sport out of my head though for similar price, power and (ever so slightly larger) size.
