The Renault 4 (commonly called 4L) is a small popular car of great diffusion of simple and practical design. It is also the first application of traction on a passenger car of the Renault brand after this technique was adopted on the Estafette in 1959. The R4 was also the first station wagon in the world to have four doors, a large hatchback, a spacious luggage compartment and a modular interior.
The Renault 4 was so named because it was equipped with an engine of 4 fiscal horsepower; the Renault 3 which shared the same bodywork had an engine of 3 fiscal horsepower.
