RENAULT MONASIX RY2

The first medium-sized Renault to be powered by a 6-cylinder engine, Monasix was the most spacious saloon in its class.

A world-class reference

It was an economical car, consuming moderate quantities of fuel, and three times less oil than other rival models. It was also cheap to run.

 

In terms of safety, as of 1928, it featured a mechanical servo-brake, a device normally found in bigger cars. Proof of its robust build was the 188 million kilometres covered by 5,000 taxis over a two-year period.

A sporty character

In the sporting field, it showed its mettle by winning the first two places in its category in the 1928 Morocco Rally at an average speed of 91 km/h, an astonishing average given the state of the roads and tracks at the time. It was available in five versions, including a 4-seater soft-top, a saloon and the Torpedo. As of 1931, it was fitted with a rear bench seat adjustable lengthwise, a luxury feature now found on modern-day vehicles.
