RENAULT 19....

The R19 was launched on September 1988 as the replacement for the R9 and R11, both of which were ageing and outdated by the late 1980s. The R19 featured Renault's new E-type (or "Energy") 1.4 L engine and F-type 1.7 and 1.8 L versions. Base models used the OHV C-type Cleon 1.2 and 1.4 L engines, depending on the market.

Intended to be Renault's last numeric-named car, the 19 ushered in a new naming policy, with the saloon versions of the 19 being known as the 19 Chamade to distinguish them from the hatchbacks. The Chamade badge was dropped following the 1992 facelift. Although the R19's exterior design (which was relatively conservative, like that of the Renault 9/11) received a muted response, it was praised for its interior comfort and handling.

The Renault 19 was awarded the 1989 Car of the Year in Spain and Germany, 1990 car of the year in Ireland, and 1993 Car of the Year in Argentina.
