New Renault Twingo, Under 120 g/km CO2 and no diesel

For those who hate diesel but still want to have low CO 2 emitting cars, Renault is offering a solution: A new variant of the Twingo has been introduced that emits 120 g/km and burns 5.1 l of unleaded for each 100 km (46mpg U. S.). This qualifies for France's 700€ bonus for low-polluting cars. The engine, named LEV, is derived from the standard 1.2-liter 75hp gas version which has the engine tuned specifically, as well as a gerbox with higher speed ratios.

Fiat has followed Renault and has launched the Fiat Panda Eco as well.. With lower consumption and less CO 2 emissions, the Fiat Panda Eco is made starting from the base 1.1-liter 56hp gasoline engine and reduces consumption from 5.6 to 5.0 l/100 km (42 and 47mpg U. S. respectively and puts the CO 2 figure under the magic 120 g/km figure.
