Renault 16 Tx (1975)

The Renault 16 was in many respects an enlarged version of the Renault 4.  Its fifth door provided the utility and space of an estate car.  First examples had a 1,470 cc engine, increased later to 1,565 and then 1,647 cc.  Power went up from 55 to 93 bhp.

The TS version not only had a more powerful engine but also a tachometer which were only found in sports cars in those days.
