French automaker Renault will unveil its brand new Twingo minicar at this  
year's Geneva Motor Show in March. That may not seem like exciting news, but 
the  new Twingo actually marks a radical departure for cars in the segment, 
as it  utilizes a rear-engined, rear-wheel-drive layout.

It's the first time Renault has used such a setup since the 1970s, and  the 
first time anyone has used such a layout in a small car for quite some  
time--aside from Mercedes sub-brand Smart. That's no coincidence, as Smart and  
Renault have worked together on developing the new car--the Twingo shares 
its  underpinnings with the next-generation Smart Fortwo and Forfour.
