The 3.6 m Twingo isn’t playful enough? Renault solved the solution, by launching the Hipanema special edition. It brings the Brazilian spirit in the A-segment. And if the Brazilians don’t know how to party – who else does?
Hipanema is a ethnic jeweler which helped the French add a bohemian aura to the little car. It is even more colorful now, featuring four exterior colors: Cristal White, Éclair Yellow, Dragée Blue and Etoilé Black. But the special color program isn’t the only feature of this edition. It is garnished with canvas opening sun roof, coral door mirror housings, Hipanema decals, front door sills and carpet mats and gloss coral interior trim. It also brings excellent connection features, thanks to the multimedia system including Connect R&Go radio and R&GO multimedia application. The users can connect their smartphones to the car’s multimedia system, to listen to the music, navigate, see the contact list and initiate phone calls. Reversely, they can also see some car’s data on the smartphone’s display.
But wait, there is more: the electric front windows, the speed limiter, the leather-trimmed steering wheel and the two-tone wheel rims are part of the menu. All these come with a price: the Hipanema costs 13.700 euros. However, buying this special edition, with all these features, will help you save 550 euros.
All the rear mounted gasoline engines will be available in combination with this special edition: the 1.0 liter powertrain developing 71 hp and the three-cylinder, 1 liter turbo engine delivering 90 hp. This last version raises the price at 15.800 euros, while extra 1.700 euros may be spent for other optional equipment.
