Two Renaults. :hsugh: Three if you count their sharehold of Datsun. :hsugh: I'd take any of the cars on the list though.

Twingo! :wth: It's looks are growing on me more and more. I only like cars I know I can one day afford to buy and run, so I hope the Renualts, Mini Works or Fiat win. :halo:

On a side note, wtf is a 500 Abarth and what does it do? Reviews anywhere peope!?

Buy Evo on the 12th Nov and you'll read all about. 1.4 turbo power in it.

Make for an awesome daily driver as opposed to your Clio. Chassis is supposed to be wicked and the engine has enough fizz to keep it interesting without eating up your wallet.

How much do the Twingo and the 500 weight?

Curious to see if they are actually "small" cars or are they fully loaded of sh*t


I wouldnt mind one of them 500's with the tuning option on it for 150+

they had the 500 on top gear lastnight and look awsome! the one with 160 bhp is the abarth ss ;) which is the one they tested on topgear, the twingo doesnt have as good figures as the 500

EDIT: oh and aparently the 500 weighs less than a ton ;)

Fiat 500 Abarth SS is the small car winner for me then!

I hate the 500 with a passion. Not because it's a crap car, I'm sure it's nice to drive blah blah etc etc. But it's a poncy little ugly son of a bitch, which is simply a fashion statement for those with not a lot of cash to say "Look at me, I'm driving an old classic that's new!". Like the Mini. It's a gay car, it's for show offs, and I quite simply don't like the hype that surrounds it.

And as for the list, I'll not give my thoughts - it's like channel 5 doing a top 10 kids programs. You just know it's not going to be quite right... :lol:
