The Renault Fuego is a four-seater, three-door hatchback produced by French automaker Renault from 1980 to 1992.

The Renault Fuego was heavily based on the Renault 18, sharing its floorpan, drivetrain, and other items. Later, the Fuego dashboard was added to the facelifted R18. European production continued into 1986 (to 1985 in France and 1986 in Spain), while Renault Argentina produced the "Fuego GTA Max" up into 1992.

It was sold in the United States through American Motors (AMC) dealers from 1982 through 1985 inclusive.

The Americanization of the car drew negative responses from the original European design team due to the enlarged bumpers, recessed headlights with plastic surrounds, and choices of interior and exterior finishing that were required to suit American tastes and legislative requirements.

A convertible version was unveiled by the French coachbuilder Heuliez in 1982, but never made it to production due to cost.

The Fuego's body design was created by noted automotive designer Robert Opron, who had previously designed the Citroën SM, Citroën GS, and Citroën CX.
