Produced from 1961 to 1993 with 8 million units sold, the 4 (also called R4) is one of the best-selling and most successful Renault ever. It’s tiny (3,60 x 1,48 meters) and has a sophisticated and loved design that remained the same throughout the entire production of the car. In the interiors, passengers do not sit in actual seats, but on two kinds of benches covered in fabric. This makes the car uncomfortable during long journeys but has allowed the French brand to save significantly on production costs. The rear bench can also be reclined (a very rare feature in the 1960s city cars) to expand the luggage compartment capacity up to 1450 liters. The R4 equips only some basic instrumentation, and its interior finishes are very simple. Mechanically, the Renault 4 features an unprecedented front-wheel drive, which is combined with a three-speed gearbox with a dry single-plate clutch and a 24HP engine very similar to that of the 4C. Over time, new engines arrive, all with displacements between 800 and 1100cc and with a maximum power of 44HP, but the R4 is never subject to full-bodied restyling. In 1993 the obsolete Renault 4 gives way to its successor, the Twingo.
