More modern, crisper-looking successor to Renault 16, designed by Gaston Juchet, and shared its body with the 30 flagship, but with smaller engines. Four-wheel independent suspension using coils and wishbones (double at front, single at rear). Nose-heavy; excellent grip from the Michelin tyres.

Diesel from 1979, and 2·2 from 1981. Assembled in Romania as Dacia 2000, with power windows and illuminated ashtray for Communist Party élite.
