1972-1984 RENAULT 5


Overview

Michel Boué’s legacy to the automotive world was one he would never see bear fruit, dying months before the Renault 5 was launched. The three-door hatchback was based on the utilitarian R4, but the styling was super-chic, and when it went on sale in 1972, the Renault 5 caused a sensation. Wraparound plastic bumpers made the 5 Paris-friendly, and a wide range of engines gave the driver plenty of options – through the years, it received ever more power, and in 1979 a five-door version added even more practicality. An all-time design classic.
