The Renault Twingo was actually the project of Patrick le Quément, the designer who wanted Renault to take risks by bringing a playful, smiling and naughty car to the market. The vision of Le Quément was a success for the French. More than a million models were made of the Renault Twingo, a relief after the crashed sales figures of the inspirationless Renault 9 and Renault 11. Are you one of the many owners of a Renault Twingo and should the windscreen be replaced? Then you can already find new Renault Twingo windscreens on the after market for just € 109.
Before we take a closer look at the possibilities of windscreen replacement, we will, of course, take a look at this special model, which actually looks like a smiling face in the traffic.
Renault had a mission. An extensive mission, because the French car manufacturer had to develop a successor for the Renault 4, which had been overtaken by time. At the same time, Renault wanted to increase its market share and work on its image, because it had taken on a somewhat 'drowsy' character. That is why the Renault Twingo was developed in a more playful way, in which a low entry price would be an important factor. There is no denying that it became a success. The first model was shown to the public in 1992 and fifteen years later the counter stood at 2.5 million models that had been sold.
It was clear from the first model that Renault wanted to renew. For example, the back seat can be moved for more leg or trunk space and the instruments are placed centrally. Until 1993, only manual models were introduced on the market. In 1994 a Twingo with automatic transmission was introduced to the market, with the appropriate name 'Easy'.
In 2006 the second generation of the Twingo was presented, but a lot of changes were made to the concept car. The competition in the field of city cars had intensified as the Peugeot 107, Toyota Aygo and Citroën C1 were equipped with more luxury. Renault's answer was as simple as it was ingenious. The manufacturer opted for eight (!) different versions, with the RS of course having the greatest power.
The second generation of the Twingo is the first version that could also be sold in Great Britain. In contrast to the first generation, this type can be delivered with a steering wheel on the right side. In 2014 the production of the second generation was stopped, just before the counter was placed on one million models.
When the third generation of the Renault Twingo was released, it was a bit of a shock for the fans. An engine in the back and rear wheel drive? Yes, because the powertrains and platform of the Renault Twingo come from the Smart ForFour of Mercedes. The third generation has been set up with a very clear idea. The city car should become a nice car again, with power and pleasant driving characteristics instead of a stiff shopping car. That is why the interior was adapted and new engines were added to the arsenal to tempt the buyer to buy the Renault Twingo once again. And with success. The Renault Twingo has been sold more than 2,500,000 times in Europe, which means that only the Renault Clio and the Megane were sold better.
Damage to the windscreen is always annoying, but it's not always mandatory to replace the windscreen. When should a car window be replaced according to Dutch legislation: when there is damage to the windscreen in the field of vision of the driver, where there is a matter of
Replacing the windscreen is then unavoidable when the car is still in use in traffic. With the window damage mentioned above, the car can't get through the MOT and officially the car isn't allowed on the road either.
Cheap car windows for the Renault Twingo are easy to find on the after market. How much does a car window cost for the Twingo, a small selection of the many available windscreens:
The low price has everything to do with the lack of a brand logo. Renault dealers only sell windscreens with a brand logo. This exclusivity makes the car windows more expensive, while the logo does nothing for the window itself. Buying car windows online on the after market is therefore much cheaper, with the quality of the Renault car windows being identical. They are even manufactured in the same place as the car windows sold by the dealer.
