Renault Twingo, a French masterpiece

Twingo - cheerful, twisting, with transitions to tango. So you can decipher the name of a compact French car that appeared in 1992 on the roads of France and Germany almost simultaneously. The car was extremely small, considering it from the standpoint of the exterior, and is quite spacious when viewed from the inside. The impression of the internal bulk was created at the expense of large glasses along the entire perimeter of the machine. But also the Renault Twingo interior was always impeccable.
