Renault 30 TS 1975 posters

Renault 30 TS


The Renault 30 TS was primarily distinguished from the somewhat lesser known Renault 20, a car that featured in the French automaker's lineup from 1975 to 1984. The two cars were constructed with identical body shapes, the only difference being that the 30 TS had quadruple round headlights, while the 20 had two single rectangular headlights. The Renault 30 TS was notable for being the first car from Renault to feature an engine larger than four cylinders since before World War II, using the then-newly introduced 2664cc PRV V6 engine, developed jointly between Peugeot, Renault and Volvo. Producing 131 hp, the engine was able to power the R30 to a top speed of 185 km/h.

The vehicle also adopted the same hatchback styling derived from the Renault 16, an immensely popular car. The more affordable Renault 20 also featured the same styling, but used a four-cylinder 1647cc engine, as well as drum brakes at the rear wheels, 13 inch wheel rims, and a smaller 60 liter fuel tank. Although both cars were separated by their respective number classifications, they were otherwise identical.

Safety features found in the Renault 20 and 30 included front and rear crumple zones as well as side impact protection, and the cars were highly praised for their comfort, handling, and low levels of engine and road noise. Over 622,000 R20s and R30s were produced in Sandouville, Le Havre, France.
