added another front wheel drive,
family model to its range in 1969, the 12.
The Renault 12 featured very modern styling (for 1969!)
which had clean, straight-cut lines featuring a classic
"3 box" layout of four doors and a boot - however it
was never as good as the Renault 16.
Although most Renault 12's had the standard 1289cc
four cylinder the more sporty "12 TS" used a 60bhp unit followed
by a 110bhp Gordini version.
The US market was offered
a special version which was produced and sold as the "12
America", powered by a 63bhp 1647cc engine.
Production of the Renault 12 series lasted until 1980.
