The Renault 4, also known as the 4L (pronounced "Quatrelle", which could be heard as "4 wings" in French), is a hatchback economy car produced by the French automaker Renault between 1961 and 1994. It was the first front-wheel drive family car produced by Renault.
The Renault 4 was Renault's response to the 1948 Citroën 2CV. In the spring of 1956, Renault Chairman Pierre Dreyfus launched this new project.
The initial transmission was a 3-speed manual. The R4 body was bolted on to a chassis. The R4 had four-wheel independent suspension.
During its production run the R4 was regarded as a tiny estate car, but in retrospect the car clearly popularized the hatchback body style, and is therefore significant in the history of car design.
