Renault Juvaquatre

First unveiled in 1937 Juvaquatre’s career was split in two by the Second World War.  Initially intended as a family car, it eventually emerged as a commercial vehicle.

To second the 8CV Celtaquatre, then the cheapest Renault car, the brand unveiled the Juvaquatre at the 1937 Paris Motor Show. It targeted customers with modest incomes and was Renault’s first 6CV-rated car to use a monocoque chassis and separately driven front wheels. The innovations ensured greater stiffness, lighter weight, and improved comfort, while advertising campaigns highlighted its reasonable fuel-efficiency.  Marketed from 1938 the two-door car was quickly joined by a four-door saloon in response to the stiff competition on a market that featured  the Peugeot 202 and even the Citroën Traction. War would soon stop the Juvaquatre’s momentum, however, and it was chiefly as a light commercial vehicle that the postwar vehicle met with success, with the saloon making way for the highly popular 4CV. Rugged and simple the Juvaquatre enjoyed a second career, very popular with craftsmen, tradesmen, and even civil servants.
