When Renault introduced its model 16 in December 1964 the concept of a five-door saloon was very new. It used a rear hatchback door with fold-down rear seats and although it had awkward styling, at the time it was unique.

It achieved excellent roadholding and its all independent suspension allowed a soft ride on even the toughest roads. As well as front disc brakes it could handle 145 km/h with its 1470 cc engine.

It had a long production span (some 15 years) and was superseded by the Renault 20 in 1979. In 1968 the TS was made as a higher performing version with its 1565cc motor that managed 160 km/h.

It cruised the motorways like a dream and its electric front windows were seen as a rarity on a car in the 1970's. It was distinguishable by four-headlamp nose and sports wheels.
