You can have plenty of fun in a RWD car with "only" 110bhp, even more so when the engine is slung out the back
You're right there are loads of superminis out there but they all have fwd front mounted configurations.
I appreciate this is a rebadged SMART but it's a cool little piece of packaging and a definite break from the norm.

Not saying for one moment you can't have fun in a small RWD car. Nor do I subscribe to the notion that RWD is necessarily better. For everyday use front wheel drive cars are just as much fun (or as much fun as the law allows).
Since 1981 I've owned more cars than I've had hot dinners (almost), rear wheel, front wheel and 4x4... or in other words I don't have a clear preference.
Back to the Twingo: As a concept or design it is bland -- just another modern design, no doubt aimed at a specific market. That market isn't me.
Put the Twingo in a multi-storey car-park alongside, let's say, FIAT 500, my 156 Sportwagon, modern Ford Fiesta and a VW Beetle. Which one will stand out the least?
If someone put me up against a wall and said choose between a Renault Twingo or have my toenails pulled. It'll be the toenails all day.
Cars are so subjective, so this is my personal opinion.
