Difficult to retain only 5 models from the long history of Renault! Here is a selection of some of the most iconic diamond cars.

Founded at the end of the 19th century, Renault has gone through more than 120 years of history of France. Enough to be both a reflection and a player in the social transformations of the country, from the first cars of the 1900s to futuristic autonomous concepts, including the popular Trente Glorieuses. We have chosen the 5 most legendary models in its long history!

Renault 4CV: 1947 – 1961

Designed in secret during the occupation, the 4CV is the car that will take over Renault after the Second World War. Produced at more than a million copies for almost 15 years, it was undeniably one of the most popular cars of the post-war period. With its rear overhang motor, it easily accommodates the whole family. Thanks to its affordable price, it quickly became a symbol of the Trente Glorieuse and established Renault as the leading French manufacturer.

Renault 4L: 1961 – 1992

Sold for over 30 years and over 8 million copies, the 4L is by far the car best-selling in Renault history. With its simple design, large interior and utility versions, it is the quintessential popular car. It is designed to attack the Citroën 2 CV directly. It will equip a large number of craftsmen, SMEs, but also the gendarmerie or the Post Office. Its popularity is such that Renault is preparing today to launch a new 4L, this time in 100% electric.

Renault 5 : 1972 – 1984

With its cubic shapes, its compact size, its practical aspects and its rather efficient engines, the R5 brought Renault into the modern era, at the beginning of the 1970s. For 10 years, it was the car the most sold in France. It also marks the spirits thanks to its many sporting variations, such as the R5 Alpine

and especially the demonic R5 Turbo, with its engine at the rear. Its boils still resonate with the public today, and, as with the 4L, Renault is preparing a new electric generation. It should land in 2023 and will replace the Zoe.

Renault Espace: 1984 -…

Launched in the 1980s, the Renault Espace caused a sensation. It is a pioneer: with its shape in one volume, it can transport up to 7 people in unprecedented comfort for the time. If the segment of minivans was launched a few years earlier in the United States, it is a real novelty in Europe. And minivans will be a hit for many years, until the arrival of SUVs at the end of the 2000s. Today, the latter threaten Space, whose fifth generation is approaching the end of its career.

Renault Twingo: 1992 -…

After 3 generations, the Twingo will soon bow out! However, the city car knew how to wear Renault in the 1990s. With its rounded look, its unibody profile in the form of a minivan, and above all its astonishing interior space, the Twingo quickly became an icon in France. Everything is done to keep costs down, from the central meters to the foam on the seats. Popular success is immediately apparent: more than 2.5 million copies sold for the first generation. The second and third generations are becoming normalized, and are even going electric. She will unfortunately be a programmed victim of the grand plan Renaulution.
