In September 1965 the R10 was launched, replacing the R8. The new model being stretched by 20 centimetres to provide more interior leg room along with better luggage space (increasing from 240 to 315 litres).
The first of the longer R10's retained the round headlamp design of their predecessors, however these were soon replaced with the more familiar squared off headlamp. The Renault R10 was the first car to be built in Australia with this expensive new styling; the new shape delivering much more light for better night driving. It was also equipped with side indicators, in addition to those at front and rear.

However, there was more to the R10 than looks and luxury. Under the hood sat the Renault Sierra 1100 engine with its 5-bearing crank­shaft and 4-speed fully synchromesh gearbox, with ratios calculated to make the most of the engine's distinguished qualities.

 

The R10 also had four independently suspended wheels and four disc brakes to give perfect road contact and braking safety. It had four coil springs and four telescopic shock absorbers, which made the R10 an extremely comfortable ride.
