Settle into this hot hatch’s sport seat and the first thing you’ll notice is a tachometer—and only a tachometer—mounted right in front of the driver. That’s a good sign this minute Renault has its priorities straight. Renault has decades of experience making small cars athletic, and the Twingo RS Cup is no different, being a track-day car that doesn’t punish occupants despite stiffer springs, a lower ride height, and larger wheels. The result is a stiffly-sprung car that handles like it’s on rails, with only the mildest understeer to remind you that it is ultimately a front-driver. Lighter than the standard Twingo and with the 132-horsepower motor pulled from the larger Renault Clio, it’s snappy off the line. It also looks sharp too, with available Renault Sport decals gracing the sides of the attractive hatch.
