RENAULT 18

4-door 5-seater saloon/estate.

Smoothly-styled but somehow rather bland successor to the Renault 12, with front-wheel drive, front discs, engine ahead of transmission - all traditionally Renault. Notable for first European use of new 1.4-litre engine, and use of MacPherson struts on this size of Renault. Turbocharged version (1565cc) and diesel not available in UK until eighties.
