Renault 4 History

Renault first built the Renault 4 as competition for the Citroen 2CV which was dominating this class in France at the time. It was introduced in 1961 alongside the smaller and cheaper Renault 3. The base model on these cars were very basic, and didn't have some features which were almost essential, so they were soon discontinued. There wasn't many changes made to this vehicle throughout its lifetime. Although these cars were extremely basic, this helped them to be a popular choice for those seeking a cheap little car. It was around a long time, but started looking very dated compared with other cars and production ceased in 1992.
