Introduction



The Renault 6 was designed to supercede the Renault 4, and part of its design brief was that it should be larger, better looking and more luxurious - and thus more expensive.

Initially introduced on the Salon d'Automobile in Paris in 1968, the R6 was technically the same as the R4, with a changed front wheel suspension, which was also changed for the R4 from that date, but the bodywork was much like a small R16.

It had the 845 cm3, which was the same engine as found in the R4 and Dauphine and originated in the 4CV engine.

At the Paris Motorshow of 1970 a new version of the R6 was introduced, which featured a larger capacity 1108 cm3 Sierra or Citroen engine, from the R8 Major, an engine originally introduced in the R8 in 1962.

The car had a new gearbox, with a different shifting pattern, it had front disc brakes, and a different cooling system, with an electrically driven fan with thermoswitch. The radiator was placed directly behind the grille, and not immediately ahead of the engine.
