In a recent move, the car maker has decided to launch small city car New Renault Twingo. It is expected to be launched on the February 1 in Europe. As per sources, the new Renault Twingo, a small city car has Euro NCAP safety three star rating and is in its third generation after it was first launched in 1992. Renault could also think of a Renault Twingo launch in India. However, out of the five cars to be launched till autumn 2012, the automaker has launched four and the fifth could be a sedan and so we cannot expect Renault Twingo to be launched in India in this year.

I personally believe that Renault should bring this one to India. The only to sustain in Indian market is to strengthen the small car segment. Hope Renault take this issue seriously. Expecting new Twingo 5 door launch soon.
