Default Renault twingo gt or renault Clio sport

Looking at getting a little car cheap to run insure and so on but with a engine that would make me smile
So what better than these little hatchbacks 1.2 turbo engines plenty of torque and 100 bhp im both I think





Any pros and cons about these 2
I have been talking to jordysport about the twingo and he was very helpful (someone buy his twingo)

There is a difference in the price but I am not to bothered as just want the best one

Id rather have the 1.2 clio.

New Clio's look really nice tbh, but the Twingo GT's are growing on me slightly. Kinda wish I bought one.

If it was me, with that money to spare, i'd have a white clio with a decent engine in it.

Polo gti

I know the 1.2 engine is small but has potential I think
