In the standard Twingo, output is rated at 90 horsepower and 100 pound-feet of torque. However, the GT gains a new intake and ECU tune, yielding 110 horsepower and 125 pound-feet of torque – a gain of 20 horsepower and 25 pound-feet.
While that might not sound very impressive, remember that we’re talking about a vehicle that weighs roughly 1,000 kg (2,205 pounds), not some multi-ton luxury sedan. Even 20 horsepower is enough to make a difference in the Twingo.
Those adjustments definitely make it feel quicker and there’s no doubt that this is the most entertaining version of the Twingo you can buy. In a straight line it will just about see off a Volkswagen Up, making it one of the quicker new city cars on sale, and around town its pace is very useable.
