Renault 16 1965 to 1979

Renault reset its core family car range with the 16. A FWD hatchback, with a hot-hatch option in the early 1970s!? Lots of room, and good to drive, and with lots of technological advancement built in. One of the greats, and very popular in its day.

The base models of the 16 were fitted with a 145SR14 for its lifetime. Higher performance and spec. models had the option of 155SR14 tyres, and even a 185/70HR14 on a wider wheel.
