The Twingo has just undergone a facelift, but its design dates back a decade. This showed in its test results. Its cabin was damaged badly in the front impact but remained stable. However, the car did better in the side impact, where the head and thorax airbag protected the driver well. But, although the Twingo’s child restraints were vehicle-specific ISOFIX with top tethers, the protection they gave was average. The same is true for the car’s pedestrian protection. Its large windscreen provides some head protection for adult pedestrians.
