Consumers will be able to get a maximum view of the third generation Renault Twingo (a mash-up of "twist", "swing" and "tango") minicar at the 2014 Geneva International Motor Show next month. Originally created by Renault’s chief designer Patrick le Quément, in 1992, the new version is the company’s first production model resulting from its alliance with Daimler’s Smart division. It now will feature a 5 doors (as opposed to its current 3-door) and a rear-engine, rear-wheel-drive transmission. In fact, the cars will (reportedly) be built at the same fatory as the SmartForFour in Novo Mesto, Slovenia, and will go sale during the fourth quarter of the year as a rival for as the Fiat 500 and Opel/Vauxhall Adam and Fiat 500.

While most Twingos are currently bought by women, Renault expressed its confidence that the new model has "huge potential to win conquest sales in Europe by targeting more male buyers,” according to Automotive News Europe.
