20!*

Time to go big, by Renault standards. The 20 replaced the 16 and was bigger but still a hatch. Yes, steel wheels with no hubcaps. That was a thing at the time on basic models.

*Also there was a 30. Same, except where it was different. Like the 15/17 twins the dearer model had the distinction of twin headlights. Posh.

It also had the PRV V6 engine, power steering, a strip to fill in that groove along the side and disc brakes at the back to cope with the extra go. Fancy.

For their replacements Renault decided to split the difference and sell one model, the 25. It didn’t sell too well and was followed by the Safrane. It didn’t sell too well and was followed by the Vel Satis. It didn’t sell too well (see the trend here?) and was followed by the Latitute which came from Korea. It didn’t sell too well and was followed by....nothing, really.
